Brent Rollins and Gabriel Alvarez are members of the hip-hop media collective Ego Trip. The group produced the acclaimed magazine Ego Trip in the late 1990s. Since that time, they've written two hilarious and insightful books - Ego Trip's Book of Rap Lists and Ego Trip's Big Book of Racism. More recently, they've produced specials and series for VH1, including last year's White Rapper Show and their current series, Ego Trip's Miss Rap Supreme.
Alvarez has worked for many years as a hip-hop journalist, and was a contributor to the Adult Swim series The Boondocks. Rollins is one of the world's top urban designers. His works included the logo for the film "Boyz in the Hood" and the cover for many albums, including the seminal "Mos Def and Talib Kweli are Blackstar." Discuss this episode on the forum!
