Taking a Moment to Thank Hip-Hop
Before I go to bed, I just want to thank DJ Kool Herc for creating something so powerful, so life-changing, so rewarding, so refreshing.
I was introduced to hip-hop prior to ’91, but ’91 was the year that I fell in love. Hip-Hop has been with me for most of my life, and it will always be a part of me.
Thank you, hip-hop. And thanks to the following for making me fall in love with H.E.R. and for keeping me in love with H.E.R.:
