With a tour of study that's taken her from L.A. to New York, Detroit, London, West Africa and around the world, this PHD powerhouse has made as many stops as Jay-Z to understand the political, social and cultural forum that hip-hop and rap have come to represent. A musician, filmmaker and author, Keyes has done everything from a documentary on LA's female jazz instrumentalists to writing the CHOICE award-winning "Rap Music and Street Consciousness" along with her debut album "Let Me Take You there" which won an NAACP award for Outstanding World Music Album.
