EP 133: Manny Faces - Hip-Hop Can Save America
Show Notes Chapter Markers

Have you ever your faith in something or someone restored? I imagine that the feeling is akin to getting a new lease on life. 

My guest this week is journalist/hip-hop advocate, Manny Faces, and he just might have managed to convince me that I shouldn’t feel so jaded with the culture and music that I grew up on. He stopped by to talk about some of the ambitious hip-hop-driven initiatives that are underway in our communities to help spark a positive change. We also talked about accountability and balance within the industry as well as the global impact of the artform.
