Using Hip-Hop Music To Educate With Larry 'Lak' Henderson And Capone

On this edition of In Black America, producer/host John L. Hanson Jr. speaks with Larry "Lak" Henderson, the Hiphop Educator. Henderson is also the founder and CEO of Smart Hiphop Global and the creator of a new sound of hip-hop music that is used as a tool to educate and awaken the consciousness of youth and people in African-American communities.

Now, Henderson has teamed up with legendary rapper Capone from Capone-N-Noreaga to put out a new hip-hop and education EP called "Wolves."

Henderson and Capone talk about joining forces; how they used hip-hop music to inspire, educate and inform; blending street education with history lessons; and why this is an inspiring tool to use.
