Goin Back to R’Dam: Street Science

I’m headed back to Rotterdam a week from today — to continue the bubbling research, of course, but also, expressly, to take part in a hip-hop festival called Street Science.

Looking forward to that — especially to getting some European/Dutch perspectives on such questions.

I’ll leave you with a brief bit of audio I once cooked-up for pm_jawn’s radio show by the same name — a little concatenation of two classic NWA samples that lets Dr. Dre make the drop drop —
