Fire at 100 Centre Street
The big story in hip-hop today was that Lil Wayne's sentencing was delayed by a fire at Manhattan's centralized criminal court at 100 Centre Street. A small footnote to the story: to keep the wheels of justice turning, the court system moved some arraignments to the Midtown Community Court. Another benefit, albeit unintended, of having a community court! While I'm on the subject of hip-hop, the rapper for one of my favorite rap acts, Gang Starr, is in the hospital with an apparent heart attack. I once almost ran into Guru outside of our offices on 36th Street. I was too shy to say anything. Here's a small sampling of some of his best work.
