Harris Rosen is at the forefront of the current Hip-Hop Journalists, bright, articulate and totally fearless. My interview with Harris was stimulating and unique, and I now feel confidant that the basic honesty of the music and it's future as an Art Form will continue to be reported honestly and with integrity in his capable hands.


Dope questions, man. Very insightful, very thoughtful.
