Rajul Punjabi is a New York-based entertainment journalist and instructor of Journalism and English. Her beat is hip hop. She also has written about fashion, beauty, pop culture, race and gender, and has dabbled in comparative literature. Punjabi has crept into the psyches of entertainment figures and laid their business bare. Her favorite part of writing features and profiles is flipping projected illusions to reveal the unvarnished reality: that rappers are more polite than they appear on TV. And shorter. Punjabi’s byline has appeared in Playboy, VIBE, GIANT, Jamrock, Urbanology, Rap-Up, The Huffington Post, The Village Voice, and on Billboard.com.
