Harry Allen Exhibition in NYC

This weekend I'm taking the C Train up to Manhattan to check out the Eyejammie Fine Arts Gallery, which is holding an exhibition of the photography of hip-hop activist and media assassin, Harry Allen. Most of the images are from the mid-1980's and are very rare and previously unseen. During the period, Allen attended Adelphi University in Long Island and, while working at the student radio station, became associated with a wide range of music icons. Artists who appear in much of Allen’s work include Run-DMC, Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, LL Cool J and comedian and activist Dick Gregory. The collection is called "Part of the Permanent Record: Photos From the Previous Century," and will be open to the public from through Thursday, August 16. Check out more of the exhibit here.

Big Spender

Video: Common Freestyle on Rap City

Since DiBiase is goin gangsta on me, I had to post this breath of fresh air. It's funny because I'm in NYC and there is all this talk about "hip hop is dead" and trying to revive hip hop, but if you look to Chicago, hip hop is kickin like never before. Just because nobody really cares about New York hip hop right now and it's not runnin the charts, doesn't mean it's dead. Lupe Fiasco, Common, Kanye West, Twista, Kid Sister, and more could all tell you Chi-Town ain't lookin too bad in the summer of 07.

Common Freestyle - 6/19

Common definitely rips this off the top of his head... looking forward to Finding Forever.
