It’s been a long time coming, but The Combat Jack Show finally got the legendary Chuck D and Bomb Squad’s Keith Shocklee to sit down and discuss some of the issues plaguing Hip-Hop, enjoyable anecdotes, and the controversial back and forth with Hot 97.
Per Combat Jack:
Internets, this is such an honor.
It’s been few years of me trying to get the legendary Chuck D on The Combat Jack Show. It took current events, plus the Freddie Foxxx episode to make this happen (thank you Bumpy!). How do I even describe this 3 hour long discussion with Chuck D and Keith Shocklee? Def Jam, Hot 97, Dr. Dre, N.W.A., Ice Cube, Tupac Shakur, Marley Marl, Flavor Flav, Eric B and Rakim, COINTELPRO, Run-DMC, the Bomb Squad, the dearth of diversity on rap radio… so much knowledge.
What I’m walking away with is how we have the power to control how we’re perceived in this culture. And how we have to stop making excuses. Now. Ladies and gents, we present to you, the Episode Without A Pause.
