607 is going to Harvard

Posted By on Thu, Mar 12, 2009 at 2:55 PM


I've mentioned this before and I blipped it in this week's "Smart Talk," but big, big up to 607, who's Harvard bound this weekend to rub elbows with Ryan Leslie the dude from the Fugees you've forgotten about and industry bigwigs at the Harvard Law School's Black Law Student Association's spring conference.

He's part of a panel discussion, entitled “The Bizness Behind the Business,” that's aimed at high-risk teens.

Joining Six on the panel is songwriter and R&B crooner Ryan Leslie, who got a 1600 on his SATs when he was 15 and graduated from Harvard at 19; Conrad Dimanche, senior director for A&R of Bad Boy; Tone Capone, executive vp of Universal Motown/CMG and Toledo youth worker Najja Campbell.

Pras Michel, late of the Fugees, is a moderator.

Not long after the panel, he's spending time in Russia and Africa, but he's committed to his weekly remixes.

Here's the latest.
