    This was really great. A lot of knowledge. Cant believe he said he really wants to work with Andre 3000. Been waiting for a Nas Andre3000 song forever.

    I was about to not watch this just cuz the words of Michael Eric Dyson is at times, too much to take in and handle but yo i love this video, the dialogue is crazy informing and encouraged me to stop the video and think on some of the questions asked from the audience (pretty much talking out loud adding my two cents as if i was there).. yo big up to Big Homie for posting, mad respect to Georgetown for holding this event. Its so appreciated. Great stuff.
