We're past Labor Day, kids, so you know what that means...school's back in session. New hip-hop class posted later today or t'm'row, depending on how busy my evening becomes.
While I'm on the subject of hip-hop, there was a big article about Kanye West in last week's TIME (who has been in the news recently, in case you haven't noticed) that was essentially trumpeting him as a hip-hop revolutionary. As much as I like Kanye, he's basically just done two things:
(1) Gone back to the formula used by early '90s groups like Tribe; and
(2) Sprinkled in a healthy sense of humor, much like Eminem.
There's the secret, folks.
And, by the by, without commenting on what he actually said, don't you think it looked like he was completely freaked out on that telethon? Ultra nervous, stammering... It was almost like a comedy routine. And the look on Mike Myers's face...priceless.
