So there are perks at NPR. In a last minute pinch I scored big time when I was able to book Hip Hop Icon Master P as a guest on Monday's show. Despite having to wait for him at the door and madly rushing him into the studio because he was running late (he blames me for my directions "which led him nearly to Mexico.") - the interview was great and he was the perfect source for our piece on Hip Hop and Violence. Check out the audio from Monday's News & Notes (6/25) on the web.
Best of all he says "I gotta have you as my new friend because we all need friends in high places - and NPR is about as high as it gets." So in short, we interns ARE in the right place according to Master P himself.
