OLM News: our Convo w/ Author Nelson George..Brooklyn Boheme & the State of Black Music


We recently sat down with longtime music critic and author Nelson George to talk about his new movie Brooklyn Boheme.This is a film that focuses on what many deemed a major Black Artist renaissance in the Fort Greene section of Brooklyn during the late 80s and throughout the 90s and on into the early part of the millennium.

During our interview, not only did we talk about the movie, but we had an engaging exchange on the state of Hip Hop and Black music in general… To this day one of the dopest books I’ve ever read is Death of Rhythm and Blues and so we definitely built on some of the points he raised there…¬† Enjoy the convo which recently aired on Free Speech TV
