DX News Bits: David Banner Lectures At Harvard, Baygreen Surrenders To Police, Clear Soul Forces Talk Music

David Banner heads to Harvard for a conference, Baygreen turns himself into police custody and the Clear Soul Forces get profiled by Red Bull.

From the GZA to Bun B to even the Based God, Hip Hop has slowly but surely been taking over college campuses across the country. Now, David Banner is throwing his hat into the academic ring with a new lecture.

Emilio Sparks reports that Banner will take part in "The LA Riots: Twenty Years Later" conference at Harvard University on April 27 and 28. The conference will examine the Los Angeles riots in 1992 and how the social issues that sparked those uprisings still plague society today.

Banner will be joined by Henry Louis Gates, Jr. and panelists from Harvard University, NYU, Temple University and others at the conference.

In other news, an emcee from the Bay Area is now in custody on murder charges. AllHipHop reports that rapper Baygreen of the Crest Creepaz turned himself into police custody over the February 14 murder of 23 year old Danell Lashawn Stevens.

Baygreen was a member of Mac Dre's Thizz Nation and was featured in DJ Vlad's documentary Ghost Ride the Whip. He is currently being in Solano County Jail without bond.

Finally, Red Bull released the second episode of their "Sound and Vision" series that spotlights budding music groups. In this episode, Red Bull focuses on Detroit foursome Clear Soul Forces, who explain how being raised and living in Detroit has influenced their music and how Royce Da 5'9" influenced them to form a crew.

    This is the first time popDX has mentioned CSF! Fucking amazing how behind these editors are but quickly write a hundred articles on Kreypawn. No mixtape review, no video, nothing. No anger towards you Sean but you need to find a team of professionals.

    David Banner is a champion for the hood even if he's not in the spotlight as he was. His music has strong messages and I respect how hes not afraid to show his intelligent side while doing interviews in the media. Thanks for breaking the mold Banner.
