I just got off the phone with a producer from CNN/HLN who asked if I cared to discuss Nas' ignorant letter to the savages in Chicago on CNN's Headline News today.
She said I would join of panel of such distinguished guests as Jesse Jackson and others. And she asked If I would give my perspective on Nas' ignorant letter from a Hip Hop perspective.
When she said I would be on camera in the studio, naturally I declined. The simple fact is I am not uniquely qualified to speak on the subject of Hip Hop. I certainly didn't want to embarrass myself on national TV trying to sound like an expert on Hip Hop when I don't even listen to the garbage on the radio anymore.
But I appreciate CNN/HLN reaching out to me today. It means I'm doing something right! The segment airs at 5:30 p.m. today on Headline News. Be sure to watch!
