Hasan Stephens, aka DJ Maestro, Hip Hop Scholar and Radio Executive, during a lecture at Syracuse University earlier this year.

During recent trips to DMV-area (DC, Maryland and Virginia) and Philadelphia I had the opportunity to experience some diverse radio programming.  It was particularly a treat to hear Hip-Hop pioneer Lady B doing a marvelous throw-back show called The Basement Party.

Today I read the DJ Maestro and partners will be starting an online radio vehicle that will enter the urban music market in the area.  Labor Day is the launch date.

Below you can hear Maestro talk about the need for diversity in Hip-Hop music during a lecture at Syracuse University earlier this year.

Rev. Run speaks about race in Hip Hop at Syracuse University

Rev. Run, remedy formerly Run of Run DMC, spoke last night at Syracuse University in a forum about race, religion and Hip Hop. He was joined by fellow panelists Hasan Stephens (aka Maestro) and Don Sawyer, III.
As an elder statesman in the culture, Run said his job was certainly not to criticize new voices in the genre. He pointed out that artists, like people, evolve and grow.
To read some of the comments during the forum, see this twitter account.
