The MAKE NOISE series sits down to interview content producer, creative entrepreneur, educator and writer, Felicia Pride to discuss her career and her book, "The Message: 100 Life Lessons from Hip-Hop's Greatest Songs.


THE MESSAGE: In this book of life, lessons culled from hip-hop culture, author Felicia Pride examines a wide range of hip-hop songs and artists, interpreting life through their lenses. Growing up with hip-hop, Pride has come to realize the way it shaped how she thinks, writes, and reacts, making her the person she is today.

Pride infuses these essential truths with examples from rappe...
