The hosts of All Politics Are Local, America’s #1 political Hip Hop radio show, will have Reverend Conrad Tillard on as a monthly guest co-host. He will discuss national issues from a Hip Hop perspective. Reverend Tillard is the senior Pastor of Nazarene Congregational Church in Brooklyn, New York.  While he was the Nation of Islam Minister of Mosque #7 in Harlem, New York, and went by the name of Conrad Muhammad, Reverend Tillard counseled and guided the Hip Hop community away from beefs and violent conflicts during the 1980’s and the 1990’s in the United States.  Because of his leadership in the Hip Hop community, Reverend Tillard earned the name the Hip Hop Minister. In 1998, he founded a community-based organization called CHHANGE (Conscious Hip Hop Activism Necessary for Global Empowerment).
