Your Turn

Send Us Your Photos

To coincide with our series on hip-hop, we thought it fitting to dust off those old photo albums and search for the "back in the day" shots we'd much rather forget — back when everybody was rocking shell top Adidas, rope chains, Lee jeans and high-top fades.

We're extending the invitation for you to do the same. If you have photos hidden away — no matter how embarrassing — send it to us! If your entry is among the best, we'll post it for all to see and catapult you into "News & Views" infamy.

Here's how to do it:

Dear News and Notes as a life long fan of of all kinds of hip-hop from Sugar Hill Gang to the Wu-Tang Clan; and the concept of hip-hop world is great. But honestly, I was dissapointed with our selection for hip-hop ambassador we could use a stronger more known MC with crazy skillz and a world-wide flair. (MOS-DEF anyone?)
