Hip Hop Hooray (Leah)

August 29, 2013


Well, so much shit went down this month that it’s difficult to decide what exactly to write about. Should I talk about the slut shaming & cultural appropriation backlash surrounding the Miley Cyrus VMA performance? Maybe touch on the possibility of another unsanctioned military intervention in the Missle East by the U.S.? Or shall I play on the national nostalgia of the anniversary of the march on Washington? Since I’m no expert on any of these issues, I think I’ll do the responsible thing and just save my opinions for close personal friends in the shiny place we get to after a couple beers and just give you what I’m super alright at: a monthly hip hop mix. Here’s hoping it gives you some respite from dangerous critical thinking today, or at least gives you a good soundtrack to surf some opinion pieces.

Also, I had a great time DJing Side One Track One Presents last week and you should go to the next show in the residency on September 27 at Blackheart because John has incredible taste in music (and I’m not just saying that because he pays me the big not any bucks) and it’s free and fun.
