[HIP-HOP CRUSADER] Mic Crenshaw has been around the block. Now, he's going around the world. One of Portland hip-hop's most tireless vets, the rapper is almost as well-known for his community service as his tough, socially conscious rhymes. In the ’80s, back when he was living in Minneapolis, he founded an organization to oppose the city's rampant white supremacist gangs. In 2007, Crenshaw attended a human rights conference in Rwanda, inspiring him to form Global Fam, a nonprofit group which helped establish a computer center in Burundi. And in March, he's looking to return to the continent with the Afrikan Hip-Hop Caravan, touring six cities and hosting workshops related to art-based social movements. Ninety percent of the proceeds from the door at this show will go toward his travel expenses. It's a worthy donation, if for no other reason than the experience will certainly fuel some fierce, intelligent music from Crenshaw in the future.
