Peace and love to friends, neighbors, supporters and haters!
Now that I’ve recovered from my birthday (1/31, belated presents are welcomed!), I’m back to curating and delivering stories of hip-hop innovation, inspiration, and insight.
Quick plug: If you’re interested in hearing unique, inspiring, and valuable insight regarding:
  • hip-hop’s continuing role in the fight for social justice
  • why (and how) we must preserve and protect hip-hop culture
  • how a hip-hop mentality can help EVERY business
  • hip-hop’s vital role in technology/hacking/STEM/science
  • how hip-hop can help save America!
(I also conduct podcast workshops/training and am available for freelance podcast editing work…)
Ok, now on to the stories!

GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN // #BHM // DO THE LADIES RUN THIS
It’s social justice journalism meets hip-hop with the groundbreaking (and multiple award-winning) podcast, News Beat.
On this episode: History remembers Rosa Parks as the lady from the bus that helped start the Civil Rights movement. While that accomplishment alone is iconic, this episode explores Parks’s full legacy and her LIFELONG pursuit of justice with expert insight, Mrs. Parks’ in her own voice, and a compelling mix of music and original lyrics.
