Jay Smooth

I ran across an excellent hip hop-oriented site, Ill Doctrine. While it's ostensibly about hip hop, there's a lot more to this site.

Jay Smooth's vlogs (vlogs?) always try to look at all sides of an issue. He looks left, he looks right, he looks into the camera, and he talks intelligently, about hip hop and about other, tangential, issues.

While browsing through his site I found some media criticism that was right on target, showing how CNN frames stories so as to mislead. He's sensitive (He's thinking about making big fun out of Amy Winehouse, but reconsiders). There are also some good links to interesting stuff, like Doing the Errol Flynn in Detroit (with the history behind this dance).

There's sound advice to be had, like how to deal with the "little hater" within that stifles our creativity.

Plus, he has a cute cat.

Check out the blog..

In this vid, we have rappers trading fours like jazz musicians ... in three languages!
