You need to read this NOW: Hip-Hop, Violence and Silence
I cannot say enough good things about journalist Elizabeth Mendez Berry’s brilliance. Mendez Berry is the widely-acclaimed author of the now- seminal 2005 VIBE magazine article “Love Hurts”. Jay Smooth – who I KNOW I need to quit reppin’ here (because blog lurve is never a two-way street, just a lonely highway) – interviewed Mendez Berry on Illdoctrine not too long ago. All this stuff, in light of all the Chris Brown-Rhianna foolishness THAT I REFUSE to cover here, just needed to be said. I’m honored to link/embed these items on Possum Stew. Spread the word, y’all.
Oh and to read her follow-up, scroll to the top of the page from the comments (I don’t know why that’s the only way you can do it, but just go with it): http://www.illdoctrine.com/2009/03/ill_doctrine_at_sxsw_and_beyon.html#commentsExplore posts in the same categories: Blogosphere, Celebrity News, Current events, Media, alternative, Media, mainstream, that's that BULLLLSHIT!
