A CONVERSATION W/ JAHI OF PUBLIC ENEMY’S PE 2.0: HIP HOP, POLITICS & TURBULENT TIMES

I was introduced to Jahi through my Son's African American Male Achievement class that Jahi instructed and taught at the local elementary school. Through the course of the class my Son's interest in Black History as well as Hip Hop history peaked. After learning of Jahi's work as community builder/MC we connected and I was introduced to Chuck D's Rapstation platform. Hardknock Radio: Davey D speaks with the long time activist/artist Jahi about his two new books The Microphone JourneyMan, Influences, Messages and Notes from the Stage.. and The Intersection Between Hip Hop Culture and Education.. We talk to him about his experiences as being a member of Public Enemy and his Hip Hop activism..

We were introduced to Sir Veterano around 2005 through The Red Bull Big Tune Producer competitions (event created by DJ DV One, Vitamin D, Jake One, Jonathan Moore and Marcus Lalario). Not long after Veterano started establishing his name amongst Hip Hop notables like Skillz, Planet Asia, Ras Kass, and Eminem’s supergroup Slaughterhouse. Sir Veterano jumps back in the Hip Hop fold with his latest offering "Reputable " (directed by Yellow Nguyen), a possee cut featuring West Coast Avengers MC Eiht, longtime collaborator Planet Asia and Mitchy Slick. "Reputable" represents the kick off for Sir Veterano's upcoming full length project "The Gathering" also featuring Murs, Fashawn, Ras Kass, Bishop Lamont, Phat Kat, Guilty Simpson, MED, Casual, Skillz, Supastition, 4two7, K-Bizz.
