Really enjoyed Coppin’s symposium on Nas‘“Illmatic” and being on the Women in Hip Hop Panel discussion with @civjones & @blackshesus. I also picked up some great literature from my inspiration @dwatkinsworld and met some great new people. Let the conversation about hip hop’s impact on our culture continue!

Fellas- show this video to your potential summer love interest and watch the magic work.
