Peace and love to friends, neighbors, supporters and haters!
It’s been a long time. I shouldn’t have left you…
Sorry I missed a week, but I’m back. And contrary to what we might think, not EVERY recent article was about Kanye West…
Two quick notes: I’ll be presenting on “hip-hop as social justice journalism,” breaking down the production of the News Beat podcast I produce, Saturday, May 19 as part of #HipHopHacks at Brooklyn’s NYU campus.

But first, I’ll be DJing at The Line Up, which is a great monthly artist showcase in NYC’s West Village/LES, alongside Silent Knight and The Band Called FUSE. Great times, great music, food & drink, and never a cover. Saturday, May 12 starting around 10pm.
If you (or someone you know) are looking for someone to speak about hip-hop music and culture, social justicejournalism or podcasting at your school, conference, festival, kitchen, office cubicle, treehouse… Click here and let’s talk about talking!
OK, here we go.

BREAK THE NEWS
It’s like 60 Minutes & Black Thought had a podcast baby - Music meets social justice journalism with the News Beat podcast. In this episode: The U.S. incarcerates more children than just about any other industrialized nation. And just like adult prisons, it’s black and brown kids who are imprisoned at a disproportionate rate. We hear from #NoKidsInPrison activists, including a former youth inmate, and a stellar lyrical contribution by NYC-based Napoleon Da Legend. [Apple Podcasts / Spotify / Podcast app / On the web]
