DJ Jazzy Jeff, a humble champion of hip-hop.
“Music is the most loving and most confusing thing in my life. It keeps me up at night. If I hear a great song, I sing it all in my sleep. If I hear a great album I’ll live with it for four or five months and play it every day, learn it inside out, the chord structures, the arrangements. My brain is a mess of music.” By Jeff Vrabel

Legalize It All: How to win the war on drugs.
Watergate co-conspirator explains what kicked off the drug prohibition: “The Nixon campaign in 1968, and the Nixon White House after that, had two enemies: the antiwar left and black people. You understand what I’m saying? We knew we couldn’t make it illegal to be either against the war or black, but by getting the public to associate the hippies with marijuana and blacks with heroin, and then criminalizing both heavily, we could disrupt those communities. We could arrest their leaders, raid their homes, break up their meetings, and vilify them night after night on the evening news. Did we know we were lying about the drugs? Of course we did.” By Dan Baum
