Today, I decided to change the format of my standard blog posts a bit. Instead of doing a standard write-up of an artist whose work I've come to respect, or maybe a brief description of my favorite hot, new group, I chose to sit down and have a conversation with a good friend of mine (John Formica) in hopes of getting his take on where hip-hop and rap have come from and where they're going as well. John always analyzes music on a deeper level than the average consumer and I highly respect his music. Whenever I'm in need of some new tracks, I always go to him first. I hope you enjoy!
