No Comments »

Via TheCombatJackShow: "Marc Ecko walks us through his extraordinary journey, how he came up from being a naive Hip Hop fan to becoming a household name, his run with Diddy, why Bobby Condors has him scared to blow trees today, the Barry Bonds baseball thing, why the education system has him mad and why you should run cop his book ‘Unlabel: Selling You Without Selling Out’. He’s not Che Guevara with bling on, but he’s Complex."

Via TheCombatJackShow: "New York Times bestselling author Adam Mansbach (Rage Is Back, Angry Black White Boy, Go The Fuck To Sleep) and mixtape dj and producer J.Period (March 9: B.I.G. Tribute, J.Period & NaS: Best of NaS) were this week’s guests where we chopped about being white and aware of white privilege, whether no graffiti on the NYC transit lines is a good or bad thing, Mansbach teaming up with Sam Jackson, J.Period becoming music supervisor to the Brooklyn Nets, whether there’s really hope for a true post-racial America and more. Smart talk, no filler. Let’s go."
