Ta-Nehisi Coates Breaks it Down

16 07 2008

Watch Ta-Nehisi Coates discuss how hip hop, the importance of fatherhood and how his profound love for the written word help shape his life.

I could not get over how his similar his childhood in West Baltimore in the 80s and 90s was to growing up in the Bronx during the same period.

Sidenote: I definitely dig using the Pete Rock and C.L. Smooth “They Reminisce Over You” in the piece.
