“The most powerful thing on this planet is one person and one microphone.”


What’s Up!

So far, ‘Da’ What is Hip Hop? has heard from New York, Chicago, Providence and as far as  Norway! This time, we are taking it down south to Houston’s Preemo (not to be confused with DJ Premier aka Preemo who was originally from H-town before repping NYC).  Hip hop is the school that Preemo studied in; where all grades are performance based.  ”In Graffiti is Art, Breakin is P.E., MCn is English and DJn is music. This was the alternative to the local curriculum.”  What’s your GPA?

For those who haven’t been spreading the word yet, I wanted to ask for your help with some promotion.  I really believe that it is and can be something that hip hop fans all over the world look forward to.  If you have an email list or work with a PR firm, can you send an email blast out letting people know what’s really good!  If you have your own website, can you throw up some info bout the series, feel free to include the newest post from Zumo or any previous ones.  Anything is appreciated and at the minimum I would love to see you send out some tweets or facebook posts.
Again, to those of you that are already helping with promo, I cannot thank you enough.  If anyone needs anything from me, please just let me know!

If you want to send something out but do not want to write a blurb, feel free to use this:
