“When we saw Foxy Brown … she still was special because she was only 14 at the time, and she was kicking tighter rhymes than the majority of the people in the spot,” says Danny Castro, 25, who helped start the Lounge.

“We knew that she was going to have a time to like, blow up." - Lyricist Lounge founder Danny Castro speaking about Foxy

How It Goes - Chino XL & Saafir

museumoflight: "It’s an exciting time, but a time to start asking a lot of questions… Are we about to re-experience the real VS fake dialogue that the early 90s Hip Hop scene, but with Broadway shows? What is the relationship between Beyoncé’s Lemonade, Chance the Rapper’s “Sunday Candy,” Hamilton, and the Lyricist’s Lounge Show? That is what I’m interested in asking Hip Hop artists about.“ @barsworkshopnyc @rafaelcasal @daveeddiggs @warmonkey @lookitmbj @publictheaterny #museumoflight curated by @billyjohnsonjr @adellhenderson101 @itsjoslynrose @rafaelcasal @mattsmif @jaztcu @redsummertv @respectmag 📷: @itsvell @vincenzoblanco2013 @mattsmif @higradeagency
