I believe this is the problem with rap and hip-hop. We credit people like Chippy (whose photo is featured in the print article), who is an awful lyricist and a joke for hip-hop music.

For some reason people give in to her shitshow because she's willing to show her ass on stage and "twerk"? Emcees like Rocky Rivera don't get shine?

Corrections

Our October 10 art preview, "A Work Driven By Older Women," continued two errors. First, we got wrong the original publication date of The Hearing Trumpet; it was 1950, not 1960. Also, we wrote that Leonora Carrington was still alive; in fact, she passed away last year. 

Our October 10 music story "Remembering Matthew Africa" misreported the intended use of funds raised at Matthew Africa's memorial shows. They went toward hiring a band for his funeral.
