dig - he's quoting an unreleased Ghostface joint - wicked

Boondocks creator Aaron McGruder was interviewed on NPR's Fresh Air today. Alas, I thought the interview ran too short - they devoted the second half to the founders of Google and much as I love their search engine, said founders weren't exactly as engaging as McGruder was. I usually think Fresh Air's Terry Gross is awkward when she interviews anyone hip-hop related (I've heard some real clunkers by her in the past) but her chat with McGruder was actually pretty good as he spoke on the challenges facing contempory African American culture.

Speaking of smart, insightful and just plain fun comic strips, Berkeley Breathed is bringing back Opus of Bloom County.
