For the 45th episode episode of #startthebeat I sat down with my dude Barz Blackman for an awesome talk about hip hop, hip hop and more hip hop. This is a really cool talk for anyone into the dissection of the creative process and the struggles of trying to keep things fresh in a music culture where trends expire on almost a weekly basis. We also dissect the social issues and cultural backgrounds of hip hop throughout the years. Sit back, relax and lets START THE BEAT!
