Defending the Genre

From the opinion section of today's LA Times: "Hip Hop's Socially Conscious Side" (originally spotted on Poplicks).

The authors--Jeff Chang and Dave Zirin--aren't a couple of nobodies, either. I caught Zirin promoting What's My Name, Fool! in Chicago, and he's a terrific speaker. Be sure to catch him on the road as he tours for the new book, Welcome to the Terrordome and The Muhammad Ali Handbook this summer. And Chang's new one is recently out as well.

Oh, and that documentary they mention in the LA Times piece? I think someone told you to watch it earlier...
