He's currently maintaining The Temple Of Hip-Hop (a society, ministry, archive and school he founded) and continues to tour in promotion of The Gospel Of Hip-Hop: The First Instrument, his 600-page treatise on the religious potential of the culture. He's also working on a new studio album titled Just Like That. Stay tuned.
