Tofu Soup for the Hip Hop Soul
As popular as the blog has become, this is not the way I pay my bills. I pay my bills by working as a college professor. Today I received a phone call from one of my former students. During the course of our conversation the student mentioned that he was at a friend's home studio recording his raps. I asked what kind of production tools his friend uses. Specifically, I asked whether his friend uses some software based program, or actual hardware. Not that it mattered, I only asked because I was curious. He told me that his friend uses a MPC-60 and records. I then asked how his friend got his hands on a MP-60. He said that his grandfather gave it to him as a gift. I concluded my line of questioning by asking whether he knew which producer is famous for using the MP-60. Both of them instantaneously responded with DJ PREMIER. At that moment I thought to myself, hip hop is very much alive and well.

College professor? What subject?
You're my hero.
It's good to hear younger cats recognize the real. Alot of younger heads hate on Premo claiming he's "one -dimensional" but truth: he's great at what he does. Him and Prince Paul are most consistent producers within hip hop ..ever.
dope! (and yeah, what do u teach?...i think that's cool you're a college professor)
good 2 hear!!!
Yeah, I'm compelled to comment and say that it's brilliant you wrote that. On so many levels. Makes my hair stand on end.
Dope! Peace to all the PhDs who can't stop, won't stop.
Wow! I didn't expect such a positive reaction to this post. Sorry to dissappoint those of you who are inquiring, but given the nature of today's information age I think it's best to leave out the details of where and what I teach.
What are you worried about? Stalkers or getting fired?
You just never know. You read articles about people losing their jobs over twitter posts and facebook pages etc... I know it's a little paranoid, but you just never know what could potentially be used against you. I don't work for a big name university or anything. So chances are 99.99% of you don't even know my place of employment exists.
are you oliver wang's alter ego? he's a prof too.
I always hated them shirts that hipster would wear... "HIp Hops dead" Bullshit!
Don't y'all know? Pipomixes teaches Mixtapology at Blogspot University. Come on folks.
