It’s been a minute since I posted any podcasts I’ve been checking out. Of course I been trying to keep up with The Combat Jack Show and here is the latest one I;ve heard.
Geto Boy and H-town legend Willie D, on the wave of dropping his incendiary song “Coons” discusses his contribution to this culture, the importance of rapping about social issues and gives us one of the realest interviews ever.
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.
Shit, forgot to ask him about Rihanna, but Bow Legged Lou runs through his decades of hit making. From UTFO to Britany Spears, It’s all here.
Big Daddy Kane, The Notorious B.I.G., so many stories, so many back stories. Mister Cee’s history is a storied one and no punches are pulled in this episode. The Finisher has the last word on whatever you cats might have to say about him. This one is a classic.
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.
Michael Dowd, crowned “The Most Corrupt Cop in the History of The NYPD” and main subject of the amazing documentary ‘The Seven Five’ tells his tale of being a cop in the 75th Precinct in the East New York section of Brooklyn in the 1980s. Describing vividly the unexpected phenomena that was the crack epidemic, Dowd’s descent from good cop to drug dealer is literally a movie dog. Put this one in your pipe and smoke it.
