It was a way to educate and empower people through the music, and now,  Universities all over the country are acknowledging this, as evidence through their Hip Hop archives and libraries; books, journals, and documentaries; courses and curricula; and innumerable homages to Hip Hop’s legacy. Mazi will be addressing these topics and well as the important events and initiatives in Hip Hop scholarship, community service and his organization, Words Beats & Life.
