A Conversation with Rapper, Artist, and Producer, IDK

talks
Lani Hall

NOTICE: LIVESTREAM CANCELLED - IN-PERSON EVENT ONLY

We apologize for any inconvenience. Hope to see you there!

LA Sounds Now welcomes rapper, artist and producer, Jason (IDK) Mills to discuss the history, issues, and ongoing struggles that continue to animate the stark contrast between the music industry’s leading artists — often Black artists, female artists, and other artists of color—as compared to the industry’s executive and professional ranks.

Guest moderated by Daniel Seeff, the West Coast Director of the Herbie Hancock Institute of Jazz Performance at UCLA, and host of KJazz’s Thursday night show EXCURSIONS, the world's one and only jazz and hip-hop radio show.

ABOUT LA SOUNDS NOW: EDI in the Music Industry + Still Waiting
Presented by The UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music, this special edition of LA Sounds Now integrates the Still Waiting speaker series, bringing together these two vital cross-school initiatives to offer a unique window into the current state of equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI) in the music industry. Co-moderated by the Herb Alpert School of Music Inaugural Dean Eileen Strempel and Associate Dean for Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (and multiple Grammy Award winner) Arturo O’Farrill, the series will explore the intersection of EDI in the music industry through engaging conversations with industry professionals, artists and special guests representing the rich diversity of the Los Angeles music ecosystem.
