My friends Sean (far left), Lorans (far right) and I (second from right) got to meet a legend in Hip-Hop, Chuck D (second from left), frontman from the seminal hip-hop group, Public Enemy.

It was amazing. I had heard him speak as a senior in high school at Cleveland State back in 1994. As a man, I have a stronger appreciation for his art and his viewpoints. I bought a couple of his books: Fight the Power:Rap, Race and Reality and Chuck D: Lyrics of a Rap Revolutionary.
