On the February 4, 2018 episode of OffBeat Radio, OffBeat’s digital editor Amanda Mester talks with veteran New Orleans selector DJ RQ Away and celebrated hip-hop artist and activist Slangston Hughes in a new installment of BreakBeat, a segment focusing on hip-hop culture. The three discuss DJ culture in New Orleans, the upcoming Dilla Day NOLA event at Three Keys and more. Folks can connect with DJ RQ Away through his official website. Slangston Hughes can be found on Twitter and Instagram.
