Reminder! I’ll be in the Bay this weekend starting TONIGHT! Here’s a quick overview of where I’m djing:

Thursday 9.25: Devil’s PieNamu Bar, SF
Friday 9.26: LIBREPoleng Lounge, SF
Saturday 9.27 (day): APAture: API Hip Hop WorkshopSpace 180, SF [JUST ADDED!]
Saturday 9.27 (night): BasicEZ5, SF
Sunday 9.28: Soul-FullLuka’s Taproom & Lounge, Oakland

As you can see above, I, along with Drizzle, am now doing a workshop at the annual APAture, a festival highlighting emerging API artists. The workshop is titled: Asian American Hip Hop for Dummies: Race, Popular Music, & Authenticity, and is basically a discussion focusing on analyzing and critiquing notions of what “real” hip hop is and how Asian Pacific-Islander Americans fit into the whole scheme of things. Also, we’ll be exposing folks to all the API hip hop out there that we’ve come across doing our Apex Express API Hip Hop radio show on KPFA.

Hey~ I am currently in Rhode Island right now, and i’m working on my senior thesis on Asian American hip hop (Brown Univ. Ethnic Studies major). i’m originally from ktown LA so i know the azn am hiphop scene is more visible over there; i’m having a little trouble getting in touch with sources from school. I just have a couple questions that might be answerable via email or even by phone would be great. i’ll also be in cali in december so i’d really appreciate it if you can help me represent on this side of the country, knaw what i mean? ^_~
