American Graduate Champion: Bavu Blakes

KLRU shares the inspiring stories of the people that are making our community a success! As part of our American Graduate initiative, we’re honoring American Graduate Champions that are making a difference in our community.

“I never emcee without the mind of a scholar, and I’m never a scholar without the mind of a emcee.” This pretty much sums up the philosophy of Bavu Blakes, a prominent Austin rapper who now spends his time melding the worlds of hip-hop and education to create a learning experience that is captivating, intrinsic and edifying.
