Back story: I was hit with a bad case of insomnia this week so by the time I sat with Eric I was going on 1 hours worth of sleep in 5 days. Add to the fact that in person, Eric’s presence is intimidating. I’ve never met anyone more serious than Eric B. With that said, you’ll pick up on the nervousness in my voice.

Eric takes us back to the heart of Golden Age Hip Hop and into the future. A fascinating man. A fascinating story.

Internets, we present to you the Eric B episode.

This one is all Philly everything as we introduce Philly’s own Ghengis Kellz to the Combat Jack Show. Freeway breaks down his health issues, his rise from the Philly Streets to the top of the charts with his Roc-a-fella clique. We go deeper into his Muslim roots, what it means to be Muslim in Hip Hop and how he’s the father to today’s Beard Gang. It’s deeper than Rap Internets. Glo Up. Unlike last year, this one is all Wins for the City of Brotherly Love.
