Tuesday, June 26, ?uestlove will be publicly standing up for Hip Hop in the Intelligence Squared and Google+ billed debate, Hip-Hop on Trial. The debate will be streamed live from the UK on Google+ Hangouts and Youtube. ?uest will be debating against Jason Whitlock from Fox News (goon alert!) along with Tricia Rose, Q-Tip, Michael Eric Dyson, KRS-ONE and a lot of other Hip Hop Intellectuals.

For bipartisanship’s sake, I’ll include Whitlock’s teaser as well, but having read a lot of Rose, Dyson, Chang, etc., I think I know which side I’ll be agreeing with. That said, I’m sure many of you feel differently. If you have strong thoughts on this, post in the comments. Otherwise, We’ll talk (listen) on Tuesday.
