On this episode of The NY Hip Hop Report, we speak with Shabaam Sahdeeq, the veteran Brooklyn MC who just released his 5th album, "Keepers of the Lost Art." We'll talk about his career, his redemption, the current album, the state of NY hip hop and what's next.
In our continuing look at how hip hop is portrayed by the media, we'll examine historical and recent backlash against "hipster" media covering hip hop, particularly new media outlets and the New York Times.
As usual, we'll quickly profile a couple of new releases and upcoming events on the New York-area horizon.
Lastly, we'll be talking about a big project that we at The NY Hip Hop Report and Birthplace Magazine are about to drop. It's still a bit of a secret, so we won't be able to say much, but you should still tune in and let us tease you...
Of course, our conversations usually wander, and we're always looking for YOUR CALLS, so feel free to join the discussion!
