FEATURED ARTIST ~ BLOCKHEAD: Interview, Live Mix, & More

Blockhead grew up in downtown New York City. The son of an artist, early on he found his passion was for music. A fan of a whole range of sounds, especially hip-hop, Blockhead steadily built a tremendous collection of tapes and later CDs from innumerable artists. After a brief stint as a rapper, he realized his calling was behind the boards and not on the mic, and from there he began to produce beats.

LOSING MY COOL: How a Father's Love and 15,000 Books Beat Hi

Host Cecil Prescod speaks with Thomas Chatterton Williams about his memoir, LOSING MY COOL: How a Father's Love and 15,000 Books Beat Hip-Hop Culture. In the book Williams describes how he managed to juggle two disparate lifestyles--"keeping it real" in his friends' eyes and studying for the SATs under his father's strict tutelage. Pappy grew up in the segregated South and hid in closets so he could read Aesop and Plato. He envisioned for his son a lot in life greater than his own, and encouraged Williams to read and educate himself, and to embrace the opportunities that had not been available to Pappy's generation. As college approached and the stakes of the thug lifestyle escalated, the disparity between Williams' street life and home life threatened to undo him.

Jeff Jahn blasted into this town over ten years ago, curating group shows with far-reaching consequences. It’s safe to say that the PDX art world, as viewed through the commercial gallery system back then, seemed overly familiar. His curation of “The Best Coast,” “Play” and “Fresh Trouble” are just a few examples of his success at revealing a different kind of Portland art world. Jeff also co-founded PORT, a website all about Portland art – and he occasionally writes elsewhere (such as for Modern Painters).
