SXSW 2015 announcement!

SUPER EXCITED! I’ll be moderating a panel on women in rap journalism at SXSW 2015. This is my very first SXSW (so please send any tips and taco recos) and I’m stoked to be able to talk about women (or lack thereof) in rap media with my friends and colleges. The panel on Wednesday, March 18th features: Kathy Iandoli (Vice, ID, Medium, etc.), Georgette Cline (The Boombox) and Nadeska Alexis (MTV), all awesome, opinionated ladies who have worked all of your favorite rappers.

Info on the panel here and more to come soon… See ya in Austin!!!



Throwback Thursday! Clique, clique, clique…

It’s Thursday so it’s only right to bring some photos out of the vault for you guys. In college at the University of Michigan, my girls and I called ourselves Mi.STL.Chi (an acronym for Michigan, St. Louis and Chicago) and we thought we were hot stuff. You can’t tell from these throwback flicks?

NO COMMENT on these fashions. Let’s just say, they were poppin’ in the Midwest at the time.




Check out Village Voice’s ‘The Best of NYC 2014′ issue

Village Voice‘s ‘Best of 2014′ issue is out! I contributed a few blurbs to the issue, which features everything from the city’s best nachos to the hottest producer. Cop the issue chock full of goodness or peep it online.



The perfect writer’s food…

Some days I get so caught up in working from my office (Translation: cozy bed) that I forget to eat. Today was one of those days. Nothing like a whole wheat everything bagel and hazelnut iced coffee from Brooklyn Bagel & Coffee Company for a pick-me-up. Sweet, sweet carbs (*insert Homer Simpson drool*)
