Hip-Hop Journalism’s OG

This Saturday the University of Missouri-St Louis hosts a “hip-hop journalism” workshop for kids ages twelve through seventeen.

Lest you think hip-hop journalism is some kind of “new media,” know that Ted Danson (a.k.a. Sam Malone) of Cheers fame was rapping the news as far back as the late 1980s.

Don’t believe it? Check out the clip below. Danson’s “hip-hop” segment appears halfway through the video.
