Raquel Rivera, the author of the Reggaetonica blog, is an esteemed scholar and a sister I have much love and respect for. I had the honor of adding on my insights to her book, Nuyoricans from the Hip Hop Zone, an excellent work on Latinos in Hip Hop music and culture.
Posting quotes from my column on Reggaeton (The Real Music) I published in September here, she has received many comments and my own responses. Please click on the link below to check them and her other writings out. Offer your own as well.
