[DJ Premier courtesy Wikimedia]Editorial courtesy of Steve 'Flash' Juon: I tried something new last week! The format of "Who Sampled It Better?" was simple - every edition posted features four famous hip-hop breaks along with two songs that sampled it prominently. You could play the clips here then pick the song you think looped it best on Twitter. I promised that after a week passed I'd do a follow-up revealing the results and adding my own thoughts on the choices...

... and one week later that time has come!

Editorial: The Top Ten De La Soul Videos

[De La Soul courtesy Wikimedia Commons]Editorial courtesy of Steve 'Flash' Juon: You know that De La Soul drops a new album this week right? It was originally launched via Kickstarter back in March 2015 and in no time flat reached the $110,000 funding goal. I do mean NO TIME FLAT y'all - it took about 24 hours. There are a lot of passionate De La Soul fans out there.

I'm one of those fans. I've seen De La in concert several times and I don't ever think I could see them live enough. If I had the time and money I'd own every single they ever dropped on vinyl, original print run and not re-issue, but I don't think that's meant to be (I Am, I Be).

How to Find the Opportunity in Adversity: A Lecture by Blueprint

Blueprint: In 2015, I had the honor of being asked to put together a talk for the fourth annual Creative Control Festival in Columbus, OH. The Creative Control festival is an all-day event that holds workshops and lectures on relevant topics for people who work in creative fields. Since I had never done a public talk or lecture before, I was initially nervous about doing it, but I accepted because the opportunity was too great to pass up.
