Everyone is still talking about Eminem's freestyle ethering Donald Trump. It was the highlight of the BET Hip Hop Awards and trending like crazy today. But this isn't the first time rappers have spoken out against the worst. president. ever. So, why are people talking? I break down the importance of Marshall Mathers speaking out--and what that means to Trump and America for XXL. Peep it here.
Are women winning--finally--in hip-hop? With the success of Cardi B's "Bodak Yellow," women in rap seem to be on top. I discussed this important topic along with Lisa Evers, TT Torrez (Hot 97) and Rapsody on Street Soldiers. Peep the video below:
If you were up eaaaaaarrrlllly today, you might've caught me talking MTV Video Music Awards with Sway in the Morning on Shade 45. Link soon come.
Thanks Sway, Heather and Tracy for having me...three years post-VMAs in a row :)
If you've been following my writing, you know what I fuck with Action Bronson. Dude is stupid talented and has the best personality. He's like a walking stand-up comedian. The rapper drops his Blue Chips 7000 today (produced by my homeski Harry Fraud). I interviewed Bronson over panini about his new record.

Thanks to everyone who came out to Hot 97's Push for Peace this weekend. The annual event featured me on a panel with a bunch of dope hip-hop folks including DMC and DJ Envy and moderated by Lisa Evers. Our conversation about the POSITIVE impact of hip-hop is coming soon to Hot 97 and on-air on Fox 5.
I loved being able to connect with fans (especially these awesome young women from the NAACP).
