    What: Harvard undergrads David Mays and Jon Shecter, one a college radio disc jockey, the other a member of a white rap group called BMOC, bring on their classmates James Bernard and Ed Young to help grow what was a one-page newsletter into “the magazine of hip-hop music, culture and politics,” and the longest running U.S. rap periodical.

    In celebration of Black Music Month, TheUrbanDaily’s “It’s All Black Music” presents 100 Rewarding Black Music Moments, sponsored by Southwest .

    Each Black Music Moment is associated with an actual place that you can visit. During the month of June, check in to at least three of these places on Foursquare to unlock TheUrbanDaily’s exclusive “It’s All Black Music” Badge. Check out the locations and details on our Foursquare page!
