Peace and love to friends, neighbors, supporters and haters!
I’m back at it for for the one nine, collecting and delivering stories of innovation, inspiration, and insight found within hip-hop music and culture.
This month is light for me on the speaking/event tip – My birthday is coming up (#AquariusSeason) so I like to take a lil’ time off to get my celebration on. In fact, if you’re in the NYC-area and would like to link up and buy me several b-day drinks, I’ll be attending Freestyle Mondays on 1/28 and then celebrating at Bar 13 on my actual birthday, 1/31.
After that though, it’s on! I love to deliver valuable insight about hip-hop & social justice, hip-hop and the media, how hip-hop can help EVERY business, hip-hop & technology/hacking, even how hip-hop can help save this crazy ol’ country of ours. Hit me up here and let’s talk about talking!
(Oh, I also conduct podcast workshops and am available for freelance podcast editing work…)
But enough about me. This newsletter is about the incredible work being done by others, so let’s get to it. We do, however, have to kick it off on the solemn tip…
