Greetings,

In the latest issue of Perfect Sound Forever <https://www.furious.com/perfect/index0423.html>, you'll find (among other things):


CARDI B
The power of WAP, by Dr. Tamara Hill
"Cardi B is known for her "shmoney" quotes, being a former stripper and having appeared on Love and Hip Hop New York for two seasons from 2015 to 2017. Born "Belcalis Marlenis Almanzar, her stage moniker is a derivative of the alcoholic drink known as Bacardi rum. Her ethnic heritage is both Dominican and Trinidadian, which by definition makes Cardi B, a woman of color like many other Dominican female rappers that are popular at this moment in time."



HIP HOP HISTORY OR HEARSAY?
Is 'the original flyer' legit?, by J. Vognsen
""Hip-hop doesn't just have a family tree, it has a birth certificate," writes Angus Batey with regard to a hand-written flier for a party held by Cindy Campbell and her brother Clive at 1520 Sedgwick Avenue in the Bronx on August 11th, 1973.i What makes this particular date special is that it was the first public appearance of Clive as DJ, appearing under the name Kool Herc. But is the birth certificate real?"



We also have a Spotify playlist with most of the artists above here:

We're always looking for good writers and/or ideas so let us know if you have anything to share.

See you online,
Jason
