HipHop Appreciation Week is 8yrs young and it is supposedly gaining recognition by mayors and city officials across the country. According to the Teacha, the theme this year is Freedom. Ever since I can remember the event has been pushed by KRSone and the Temple Of HipHop without much support from other artists. Without getting into it, the reason why I never get excited about it is because the events and the “themes” tend to drift towards the heavens. Read this essay (The Milk And The Meat: An essay on Christ by KRSone) if you feel like being similarly alienated by KRSone’s spirituality. Otherwise, check for the events in a city near you. Link
