Kevin Powell has made such a remarkable transformation since his appearance on The Real World as the “angry black man” into a a highly sought after journalist and now is finding a place in the political arena. He is considered one of the most important voices in America, most notably for his writings for Vibe Magazine, including controversial cover stories like Tupac’s interview detailing his shooting at a N.Y. studio in 1994 and the “East vs. West”, which both sparked the imminent rivalry between Tupac and Biggie.
