Another great week at @youngchicagoauthors #Wreckshop. This week we had "Rhyme Relays". First few rounds was just rhyming words then the next rounds were writing team bars. Its a great way to teach young artists to not overthink, just write and be in the moment. 
Join @defcee and I every Saturday at YCA from 4-6pm for our free emcee workshop.

Frankly speaking, I usually spend many hours on digging, but not only for new records. I am looking forward films and books about hip hop culture like this one. The Book Of Hip Hop Cover Art by Andrew Emery is one of the flyest publications of hip hop books ever. Dedicated to all nerds who love covers and stories behind them #hiphopbook #thebookofhiphopcoverart #andrewemery #hiphopcovers #hiphopscholar

In the halcyon days of Hip Hop's glided '90s, when music labels spent promotional dollars as though they were leaves sprung from groves of cash-trees, a group of journalists set out on a now-extint category of trip a junket. The sponsor: Def Jam Records. The destination: the white sand beaches and crystal blur water of the Bahamas. The purpose to regale said journalists with the label's new powerhouse on the occasion of his pending sophomore album, 1997's "In My Lifetime, Vol. 1. The man himself was a flitting, almost ephemeral presence. Always on the margins of the frolicking journalist types just happy to be out of New York. Always watching with still, studied care. In fact, if you didn't know better, you'd have a hard time deciding who was the reporter and who was the subject. Indeed, whatever the journalist flock thought of the music over the course of that junket, the conclusion about its creator seemed rather more obvious with that languid watchfulness he resembled nothing so much as a predator. The decade-plus since that junket only adds weight and context to the observation. To put it in the most appropriate evolutionary terms, he is an apex predator the big kahuna, the dragon at the top of the food chain, the devourer with little fear of being devoured in turn. Hip Hop may be a roiling ecosystem, a harsh land where dog eats dog and yesterday's celebrated kings become today's scorned paupers, a world where change is both raison d'être and bête noire. But if one entity has braved and triumphed at each capricious juncture, if one artist has tugged and pulled Hip Hop's trajectory as though it were some flicking yo-yo, it would have to be the Brooklyn-born Shawn Carter, forever enshrined in music and cultural lore with the letters of two New York City subway lines: Jay-Z.

This past weekend, Harlem veteran emcees Cam'ron and Ma$e went into a full-blown wordplay combat after the former Bad Boy Records "pretty boy" decided to respond to Cam's Nov. 2017 released track "It's Killa," where he disses his fellow. But, the "beef" did not start with "It's Killa."

The two have a pretty long history that is unmatched and one that aligns with hip-hop legacies the community exhaustly uplifts. The true hip-hop community that is.

I wrote a very comprehensive elaboration on the timeline of the once young and hungry Children of the Corn spitters, for @thesource.

Through his elite lyricism, he makes Knowledge Born about one of the many essences of hip-hop culture, The Five Percent Nation also known as the Nation of Gods and Earths. PEACE!

Also, an abundance of legendary cameos are present such as Q-Tip, Slick Rick, and Dave Chappelle, to name a few. Scan my write up on the gem for @thesource 🔗 #LinkInBio

Dr. H. Samy Alim presents culturally sustaining pedagogies.  CSPs position dynamic cultural dexterity as a necessary good.  Higher education can be a site of informative social transformation by embracing and sustaining cultural and linguistic pluralism that is authentic to the communities at the core while critical of aspects that hinder communal growth.

We must lead the paradigmatic shift to center communities, cultures, languages, and literacies in the classroom where they remain marginal today.

We must frame what we do as central and not marginal to learning, literacy, identity formation, and cultural production for self-determination.

Professor Alim also spoke to the role that hip hop plays locally and globally for youth as a gateway to knowledge of self and appreciation or the scholastic journey.  In noting Afrikaaps eKappa eMzansi as CSP that enables Afrikaans-speaking youth of color to reclaim history from Afrikaaner nationalism.  This mirrors the work done in the 1990s to assert and to center African-American English as relevant and distinct and worthy in the spectrum of US vernacular.

In 1997, post-Wu-Tang Forever, Ol' Dirty Bastard conducted an interview with MTV, where the interviewer, a jew named Josh, interrogated him with an abundance of personal questions. B.u.t., he managed to supremely transcend the shallow questions through his responses, thus, bringing forth aimless wisdom. Peep my break down and watch the interview over at @thesource 🔗 #LinkInBio

Though many consider Big Pun the most pivotal figure in the history of Latino MC's, his accomplishments and those of the rappers and producers who followed were predicated on the milestones reached by prior generations of Latino artists. But like most of the racial discourse in America, discussions of Hip Hop have often revolved around black/white dynamics, in the process obscuring the contributions made by Latinos since the genre's very inception. Wu-Tang Clan's Raekwon dug the way Pun played with slang and tongue-twisting verses "Dead in the middle of Little Italy/Little did we know we riddled a middleman who didn't do diddily," and the way he could whip up freestyles and catchy songs with equal aplomb. Though he started out in the group Full A Clips Crew, originally calling himself Big Moon Dog, Pun's rap career really took off after he linked with fellow Bronx MC Fat Joe in 1995. Joe remembers meeting him outside a bodega on 166th and Tinton Avenue in the South Bronx and hearing him rhyme on the spot. He found Pun to be a charismatic lyricist with superior command of language and a super-speedy flow. That much was apparent in grimy anthems like "You Came Up," featuring Noreaga, and "Beware," a three-minute Hip Hop blitz of 1998, when he dropped the underground hit "I'm Not A Player" and earned mainstream love with its Joe-assisted remix "Still Not A Player," the impact of which was felt throughout the Hip Hop nation, including out West. At that point, according to Xzibit, Pun's force was irrefutable. Happy Bday God. #hiphop #hiphopculture #hiphophead #hiphopscholar #hiphoppa #rap #mc #emcee #lyricist #music #bigpun #terrorsquad #southbronx #fatjoe

By '94 white rappers were no longer getting deals. The East Coast belonged to Wu-Tang, Nas and the Notorious B.I.G. Death Row ran the West Coast and both ideologies ate up the game's available oxygen. In corporate suites and on the streets, white rappers weren't an afterthought they just weren't thought about. Their only option was to go underground. Def Jam offered R.A. The Rugged Man more money than Jive. So the Suffolk County-raised rhymer claimed "Every Record Label Sucks Dick." But though the label sprung for a Notorious B.I.G cameo on "Night Of The Bloody Apes," the album still couldn't get a release date in 1994 or anytime after. A subsequent deal with Profile/EMI yielded similar results. Regardless of how unhinged and histrionic Crustified Dibbs was, no major label was willing to waste much money marketing a burly, bearded white guy with a receding hairline. It didn't help that the Rugged Man allegedly exposed himself to a Jive employee. But bad behavior was secondary 2pac had gone to jail for sexual assault, and Interscope still made sure that advertisements for "Me Against The World" were plastered across every business stop and rap magazine in America. So R.A. tunneled to the sewers, with his filth-encrusted aesthetics fitting in well with the grimy and dank terrain of the late '90s underground. #hiphop #hiphopculture #hiphophead #hiphopscholar #hiphoppa #rap #mc #emcee #lyricist #music #ratheruggedman #undergroundhiphop

I almost forgot it was time for #TuesdaysLit 📖 This week's literature, I picked up last week. It's an autobiography of Ol' Dirty Bastard (R.I.P.) penned by his close friend Buddha Monk with the help of scholar Mickey Hess. 📖 Just a few chapters in reveal some fun facts - like finding out Dirty liked broccoli on his pizza, or that the phrase "Word is Bond" was coined by the Five Percenters. I can't wait to get more into it, but so far it's the best $6 I spent in a while.

Co-author Mickey Hess dedicated his doctoral dissertation to ODB and titled it "To Ol' Dirty Bastard: I liked your motherfuckin' style" and that is the upper echelon of academia I aspire to. #inspirational .

If you haven't listened yet, spend some time with @aydeethegreat and his dissertation... it's a history-making 34 track rap album, the first ever for a dissertation. It's deep, #dope, political, moving and inspiring.

For many years now, the media, it seems, has imposed a narrow, black-or-white, racial categorization system on Hip Hop artists, denying those with multiracial and multicultural roots the opportunity to celebrate all aspects of their heritage. As a result, unless artists have waved the flag corresponding to the Latin American country from which their families hailed or rhymed at length using Spanglish lingo, their Latino roots remained hidden to mass audiences, furthering the notion that Latino rappers are somehow a novelty. Perhaps the most vocal representative of the Latino community has been Joseph "Fat Joe" Cartagena, who is of Puerto Rican and Cuban descent. Through his 1993 album, "Represent," and his sophomore platter, "Jealous One's Envy," were dubbed cult classics by underground Hip Hop enthusiasts, he didn't truly cross over to the mainstream until 2001, when his forth studio album, 'Jealous Ones Still Envy (J.O.S.E.), attained platinum status thanks to radio-friendly R&B-infused cuts like the Ashanti-assisted "What's luv?" and "We Thuggin'," a collaboration with R. Kelly. Fat Joe has built a loyal fan base that respects him as both a lyricist and a symbol of cultural pride for the Latino community. #hiphop #hiphopculture #hiphophead #hiphopscholar #hiphoppa #rap #mc #emcee #music #fatjoe #terrorsquad #puertorican #90shiphop #realhiphop

This the book I came to check out. It's $30 and bout as thick as my thighs. It's a great reference book for a Hip Hop scholar like myself but not necessarily the type of book you'd read cover to cover. It's actually grouped by year (from 1973 to 2016) and then has monumental days in Hip Hop for each year. There's some beautiful graphics and artwork throughout. @mrchuckd_pe also has blue info boxes spread throughout where he shares some personal stories or more background info about artists. Pretty cool stuff, I'm geeking out.

These are 3 things I'm going to implement based off my experience teaching middle schoolers how to rap last semester. I'm finalizing my syllabus this week and will start up teaching again next week! Thoughts and ideas are welcome. .

Go watch my brother @Diddy film #cantstopwontstop My @Diddy story started when I was just a dreamer in a small town Radford, VA where my father lived... seeing that funny dancing dude on BET RapCity saying "I thought I told you we won't stop...Eh eh Eh eh!" To Biggie's videos when I was 14 to seeing that funny dude saying #cantstopwontstop with Ma$E in shiny suits when I was 17. Suffering through the deaths of Pac and Biggie. By 21 I had a dream that "Our Love Of Rap Unites Nations" not the corrupted rap shit, but the real good Emcees and rappers, people united in this world to make it better. The people who want to live their dreams! We grew up in Hip Hop with Diddy's dreams, comedies, horror stories, redemptions, failures and successes! One day I had a crazy dream to help my cousin get out of A Gang, I told him since he wasn't going to college and come stay with me in D.C. "I'll be Your college!" So we can write this Hip Hop book "The Hip Hop Driven Life: A Genius Liberation Handbook, everyone thought I was crazy too, but i got him out of trouble and it made us grow as men. Then through All that I had more dreams and more visions... ...Even winning Diddy's "I Am King" Challenge... I Did my cameo at Diddy's White Party.... and kicked it with Curtis The Barber and @xoticsproducts and thanks to Diddy's influence in my life and business philosophy... I have learned no dream is unobtainable... working or sacrificing for a true vision is worth it ...and that haters and naysayers will always be on the sidelines...And I don't give a fuck how crazy they think I am "I can make anything happen!!!!!!"
