Quote of the Day

“I think all of us as artists and practitioners of the culture need to teach, because we didn’t learn this s*** from a book.  Hip hop was one of those things you couldn’t learn from a book…  Instead of someone else teaching it that doesn’t know what the f*** they’re talking about… I try and encourage all my brothers and sisters that are practitioners of this culture to go teach it.  I promise you, can’t no professor do or talk about the culture the way you can.  All that you have to do is create the syllabus… We have to look at ourselves as practitioners of the culture… The knowledge that we walk around and carry around, people killed themselves for that.”

– Hip Hop Producer 9th Wonder, at the A3C Hip Hop Festival in Atlanta, October 2014
