We're back with another NY Hip Hop Report. This week, we'll talk a mix of mainstream and underground, music and events, recapping an interesting week in both lanes in and around New York City. Expected topics: Consistently polarizing Nicki Minaj finally drops a song that even haters would find a hard time criticizing. Hot 97's long-time, and often-embattled, DJ Mister Cee has re-resigned from his post at the iconic rap radio station, abruptly, but without the swirl of controversey of his previous announcements. And we'll have call in guest correspondents reporting about two fascinating, NY-area hip-hop related events that happened last week, including the Tech808 conference organized by hip hop/tech/entrespreneurial event firm The Phat Startup, as well as a review of Homage 3: Illmatic, an original, Nas-inspired play that was shown at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture in Harlem. Those items, our discussions, upcoming event previews, and your calls LIVE on New York hip hop's #1 talk radio show, The NY Hip Hop Report. The NY Hip Hop Report is brought to you by BirthplaceMag.com, the #1 website for New York Hip Hop. This episode of The NY Hip Hop Report is brought tp you by Superfly: My Untold Story of Hip-Hop, the new book from Superfly Magazine pubisher Gloria Goldwater, detailing her improbable, but inportant role as early hip hop advocate and magazine publisher.
