In 1982 when I was 7-years-old I heard Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five’s seminal classic “The Message”……and have been a Hip-Hop junkie ever since.
Although I was writing for various publications for a few years beforehand, I’m probably best known for my fortnightly Hip-Hop column in Blues & Soul magazine which I contributed from 2000 until the UK-based publication went out of business in 2007. In the past I’ve also written for the likes of The Source, The Ave and Trace and have contributed to a number of mags and websites, including Hip-Hop Connection, iDJ, Big Smoke, http://www.xxlmag.com (US), www.sixshot.com (US), http://www.ukhh.com (UK), http://www.hhnlive.com (Canada) and http://www.hiphop.cn (China).
I’ve been ‘in print’ for eighteen years now and during that time have been fortunate enough to interview everyone from KRS-One, Big Daddy Kane and Large Professor, to 50 Cent, LL Cool J and Mary J. Blige.
Hopefully if you’re reading this you’ll find something on my blog worth checking out – I welcome any comments and feedback.
