The first time I met Christopher Play Martin (Play from Kid N’ Play) was during a radio interview at North Carolina Central University along with Cheryl James-Wray (Salt from Salt N’ Pepa) for a play that the two of them were promoting. Over the next few years I would run into Play at local events around town and would inquire about his current projects and about his thoughts on the state of Hip-Hop.
From time to time I will admit that I would have a star struck moment especially when I would see Play on TV one night and then run in to him the next day on his way into the Hip-Hop class at North Carolina Central University that he taught with 9th Wonder and Dr. Kawachi A. Clemons.
Since our earlier encounters, Play has continued to re-invent himself through his Brand Newz project and his postion as a Professional-In-Residence with FAMU’s Institute for Hip Hop and Music Industry Studies Program where he remained for several years teaching Hip-Hop Studies in the classroom.
Yesterday Christopher Play Martin announced, via his My Side On BNz Facebook.Com Page , that he launched a new blog called The Playgroundz where he plans to share many of his own personal thoughts and revelations .
“WELL…. here goes! I’ve reached that place where my thoughts and revelations have to get out of this head of mine. Inspired by and taking somewhat of a page outta my Brutha’s Jalil Hutchins book (not literally, LOL) I’m embracing journal therapy in a different form. I finally launched a blog site called The Playgroundz.”
