If you're nearby, come check out University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign's Hip-Hop Congress' Hip-Hop Awareness Week from March 4-6. I'll be on a panel with TJ Crawford, David Muhammad, Mario Africa, and Capital D on hip-hop activism on March 6. Other panels will feature Cashus D, Christie Z. Pabon, Marinieves Alba, and Kevin Coval.


You'll be hearing more about this as we get closer, but I'm mad excited about this one.

For this year's EMP Pop Music Conference, I'm honored to be bringing together a panel featuring two of my heroes: Benjamin Melendez, founder of the Ghetto Brothers gang (one of whose young members, Eddie Perez, recently became the Mayor of Hartford, Connecticut, earlier this year), and Henry Chalfant, producer of "Style Wars" and "Flyin' Cut Sleeves", to introduce what we're calling a "pre-history of hip-hop" that includes a look at the pivotal, and mostly forgotten, Bronx gang truce of 1971.

Here's the relevant panel info. Video, music, dialogue, stories. What more can I say? Please join us in Mixalot's backyard, April 15-18.
