TaharQa Aleem is our special guest on the Jimi Hendrix Black Legacy Series. He will be talking about his new book called : Ghetto Fighters in Harlem World. It was co-authored with his twin brother Tunde Ra Aleem, who made his transition in late summer of 2014. TaharQa continues to carry on the Aleem legacy as he promotes a memoir that the Aleems collectively have pour so much heart, soul and emotion into. This book takes its readers on a whirlwind of a journey through the concrete jungles of the Harlem underworld, as well as a few surprise stops here and there. Although this first interview will mainly focus on the Ghetto Fighters' interactions with Jimi Hendrix, the book offers so much more, as the Aleems made their way through house, hip-hop, and even some New Kids on the Block!!! You don't want to miss this first interview as we go deep into their friendship and mentorship with Jimi Hendrix.

HARLEM BUILDING collapse: Seven Dead and 74 so far. "This is a tragedy of the worst kind because there was no indication in time to save people," Mayor de Blasio said. DOES THIS SOUND FAMILIAR.....
Four more bodies were found overnight in the smoldering rubble of two upper Manhattan buildings leveled by a gas explosion that injured more than 70 people and spewed debris for blocks, bringing the death toll to seven.
Rescue crews brought in a backhoe and bulldozer and were digging through the debris Thursday for more buried victims as firefighters battled flareups in the wreckage of the two five-story buildings that collapsed Wednesday morning on 116th and Park Avenue.

About D K Betts
As a young boy growing up in the streets of New Orleans, the sights, sounds and smells of Food, Music and Art were always present. The culture itself a blend of African, French Canadian and Spanish influences can be observed everywhere. That blend is what makes the “Crib” as we call it here in the “Big Easy” special. New Orleans’ Food, Music and Art have had a major influence on people around the world. There’s just something special about our style, that mystery which seems to draw you in.
