Rajul Punjabi is a New York-based entertainment journalist and educator. Her beat is hip hop, but she has written about fashion, beauty, pop culture, race, gender, social justice, and has dabbled in comparative literature. She loves to teach writing and literature to college students because she is allowed to use all her words in the classroom, even the ones with four letters. Freedom is everything. With over seven years of magazine experience, Rajul has crept into the psyches of entertainment figures and laid their business bare. Her favorite part of these features and profiles is flipping projected illusions to reveal the unvarnished reality – that rappers are more polite than they appear on TV. And shorter. You can find her on Twitter @rajulpunjabi.
