I had a remarkable opportunity to interview hip-hop artist Darryl “DMC” McDaniels of Run-DMC fame today! I caught up with Dee at the Engage Expo at Jacob Javitz Center this morning, who was here to promote his new virtual space DMC World. We had a very interesting discussion about hip-hop culture, virtual worlds, digital games, youth education and empowerment.
It was great to meet a pioneering hip-hop MC like Dee who understands the links between "old media" and "new media" and who wants to continue to put out positive messages using his music.
Thanks to Joyce for setting up the interview with Dee's handlers and filming the whole thing. Hopefully we'll get the video up soon, as well as the audio which will be used on our virtual world education site RezEd.org.
