Kevin Powell was the radical, hothead chauvinist on the first episode of MTV's Real World. Later, he would become known as the temperamental but popular writer for the hip-hop magazine Vibe. Kevin Powell now says he's a new man — and he talks about it in his new book, Who's Gonna Take the Weight: Manhood, Race, and Power in America.
