March for our lives...

To everyone who thinks this generation is too self-absorbed, lazy and entitled...they showed up today. Thank you to the students, parents, celebrities, activists, politicians, etc. who joined March For Our Lives. 

Special shout outs to Vic Mensa, Common and Kanye West for repping hip-hop at the protests.

Showing G-Eazy his XXL cover for the first time

I’ve done a lot of covers but never get to have this meta moment. Me and Gerald aka G-Eazy were backstage last night at his The Beautiful and the Damned tour in New York City. I got to hand him his FIRST COVER EVER!

He was very appreciative and got a little emotional. He also excitedly showed it to his girlfriend Halsey who was in the house. G-Eazy was passed over to be a XXL Freshman so this cover means a lot to him. On stands March 27!

The Grammys and hip-hop: What's the deal?

The Grammys and hip-hop have always had a complicated relationship. From Will Smith to Jay-Z, artists have even boycotted "music's biggest night" for shutting the door on rap. Before the 2018 Grammys, I was on Fox 5's Street Soldiers (and Hot 97) with Adelle Platton (Tidal) and Safaree (Love and Hip-Hop NY) to discuss hip-hop + the Grammys.
