In the summer of 2009, I went on a blind date with a ballerina who hated Hip Hop.
I knew true love couldn't bloom if she considered my favorite music a weed.
Enter: Rapperina™, a mixtape to re-program a classically trained ballerina to love hip hop.
I remixed & mash'd up a dozen songs to escort this Nut Cracker to my hood.
Five years later, Rapperina™ has de-fanged even the hostilest of Hip Hop haters.
And the girl?
Sadly, she was too far gone to be saved.
