The question “What do hoop earrings mean to you?” was one of inspiration to Milwaukee artist Nicole Acosta. […]

2023 is the magic number

When you go back and listen to De La's early run you're getting a lesson about how hip-hop itself was born, how it survived in the past, how it functions at its most imaginative and how the artform can live on in the future.
