CAN A HOTEL ROOM BE A HOME?

A few weeks ago, Ali Rachel Pearl and I went to the grand opening of a new housing project in our neighborhood, the Avenida. Last week, on August 4th, we had a conversation in the recording studio at the Robinson Space where we reflected on this specific housing project. More specifically we discussed what, exactly, constitutes a home or a community when it comes to housing those most in need in our city.

Fweago,” “Don Cee” and “Forbs24K” of the V.V’s stop by to chat about the local Family Arcade, the gentrification of Virgil avenue, and even the state of hip hop for Latino rap stars today, among other things. Forbs and Fweago also share a microphone in this session due to J.T.’s mishap!
