  1. Really liked your article on Chief Keef. The Interrupters documentary team is launching an interactive site called Interrupt Violence with blog content. You interested in contributing some original pieces?

  2. This blog is official, Chicago flavor, knowledge for the movement. DIggin the realness. Would like to see a section for _____ of the day. Like Outfit of the day, song of the day, Picture of the day shit like that. Much props and respect.

  3. I love your style of writing. “the ratch in me thought the beat knocked pretty good (Chop is a beast). It was the type of music you would never listen to for deep rumination, but you could turn it on while getting ready for a party. It was a “get in my zone” track. ”

    The part that REALLY got me though is ” I’m at that intermediate age where music can be wack message-wise, but I can still dance to it (I admit that I still fight the urge to turn-up when “Love Sosa” comes on”

    Keep it coming brah.

  4. Wow. That’s all I can say to express how I feel about your work. Admittedly I’ve only read one article (DuBois at a Frat Party), but I feel exactly the same way about being the only one who constantly makes everything into a debate about the consciousness or unconsciousness of the American people and whether or not actions or thoughts equate racism and classism or sexism or whatever. Just the other day I was having a conversation with one of my friends about Iggy Azalea. I feel as though she is a perfect example of someone who is appropriating a culture she probably has no insight into. She’s from Australia mimicking a southern accent and jacking hip hip culture for entertainment purposes at a mediocre level at best. My friends argument was that it’s just for entertainment and she gets a better response by using her “ratchet voice”. I was appalled. Does he not see how he’s proving my point? Anyways. I think your writing is great and I’ll definitely read more.
