This is such an awesome endeavor -- the title "Hiphop and books" says it all. I work with Delon , a hiphop artist who raps about themes of justice and peace - and he supports this endeavor. We should start using the influence of hiphop music for good, and realize that hiphop artists can be heroes that inspire the youth to do good in their lives.
