It's been a long time coming but finally I have a cool blog that I can call my own. Most people reading will already know who I am. Discussions of hip hop and life will usually take place here when I have things to talk about.

The Learning Express

As someone who enjoys Hip Hop as an artform and is yet frustrated by the abundance of ignorance and the lack of originality, this is a nice reminder that Hip Hop can still be used to enact positive change in kids. It was put together by a few jazz musicians in the Detroit area and the idea is to use music and simple rhymes to help children learn. The emcee, Othello, has worked with different groups such as lightheaded, lojique, as well as his own solo stuff and happens to be a friend of mine. Knowing him and just the fire that he has to use hip hop to invoke positive change is great. We need more people out here doing what he is doing. Anyway, watch the mini-doc.

Here is a link to some music, and some more information on The Learning Express.
