The hip-hop blogosphere has been throwing fits over an anonymous letter entitled “The Secret Meeting that Changed Rap Music and Destroyed a Generation” [hiphopisread.com/2012/04/secret-meeting-that-changed-rap-music.html] and only Jay Smooth can see the secret order behind this shadowy intrigue.

Ill Doctrine is a video blog on music, politics and culture, launched in 2007 by Jay Smooth. We will be premiering two episodes a week on ANIMAL.

Jay is the host of New York’s longest running hip-hop radio show, WBAI’s Underground Railroad, and his Ill Doctrine videos have been featured on The Rachel Maddow Show, NPR’s All Things Considered, and cited as one of the “Best Podcasts of the Year” on iTunes. Older episodes can be found at IllDoctrine.com, or follow Jay on Twitter.
