THENEWPRINT: Airbnb Is Helping Victims of Hurricane Sandy
Thousands of people are still stranded by Hurricane Sandy. Airbnb has partnered with the City of New York to connect those in need with people who are able to provide free housing. Need a place to stay? Have a place to offer for free? Click here. This is a great company & I’m proud of their efforts.
For the sake of memory … a post to remind myself of Hurricane Sandy - lack of internet, cell service and on/off power, but time alone to read, write and be creative. Hurricane Sandy hit others WAY worse than ‘she’ did me & for that, I count my blessings for being safe and I keep everyone else in my thoughts and prayers. A friend had a tree fall on their house & many many friends are still without power. If you’re in BK & need any assistance, hit me up! 10.30.12
Hip-Hop legend, Rahzel discusses his link to beatboxing, the current state of the community and shares his thoughts on the 2012 American Beatbox championships, August 11 and 12 in New York City. Hasan Salaam will be hosting the event on August 12th at LPR in NYC.
20 years of celebrating creativity and offering a platform for artists to express themselves as individuals & at the same time, within a tribe of like-minded artists. I salute Danny Castro & Anthony Marshall for their influence on hip-hop, especially the underground scene in NYC. Over the years, Eternia and myself have worked with Danny Castro, who without hesitation has always supported and maintained the focus on talent, skill and a dope live performance. Eternia has blessed stages with many of hip-hop’s true legends and we give thanks to Danny Castro and Lyricist Lounge for those opportunities. Come through this event & you may very well catch another glimpse lol Check the flyer for all the amazing talent that will be blessing the stage.
The Lyricist Lounge 20th Anniversary will continue next month with a show featuring Ghostface & Camp Lo at Prospect Park. Yeah, Ghostface AND Camp Lo, plus more. Be there…and hopefully I’ll have the opportunity to catch up with Danny Castro one day soon to discuss Lyricist Lounge’s journey over the last 20 years.
