On this Good Convo Live, Michael checks in with the beloved rapper-speaker-postdoc Sammus for a freewheeling conversation of practice, ethics and aesthetics. In a lively hour, they work to untangle the politics behind engaging hip-hop from places of privilege, reconciling one’s love for music rooted in violent structures, and how technology works to both assist and inhibit the growth of the independent artist. Thankfully, there’s plenty of joy to find as they collectively maneuver through the unending struggles of being.
Michael Penn II (aka CRASHprez) is a rapper and a former VMP staff writer. He's known for his Twitter fingers.
