The Chuck D Episode Featuring Keith Shocklee
03:27:58
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.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/TheCombatJackShow/~4/9CD-LUcvfks" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

The Common Episode
01:31:50
90 minutes wasn't enough time. On the eve of releasing his tenth album 'Nobody's Smiling', Common revisits his days growing up in Chicago, being inspired by Michael Jordan, house music, Chicago mayor Harold Washington, Rev. Jeremiah Wright and how this album addresses the current plight of black on black crime in the windy city. Also, what it means to reunite with No I.D., being haunted by the ghost of Emmett Til and the very real and deep mystical powers of the phenomena known as "Badu Box". So much wasn't covered, 90 minutes wasn't enough, but you won't hear this type of Common interview anywhere else on the planet.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/TheCombatJackShow/~4/6Pg_83UYb4E" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

From Run-DMC to Kanye West, Soul Brother No. 1 been the go to guy to to make classic material.

Pete talks being raised by mentor/family member, the late, great Heavy D, and being encouraged to rap by Grand Puba, the true soul that went into producing "They Reminisce Over You", and the uncredited classic hits you know but didn't know was a Pete Rock production. Another session of Rap History is in effect, pull up a seat and learn about your culture.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/TheCombatJackShow/~4/xVqJh71JH8M" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

The Freddie Foxxx Episode
02:17:26
Bumpy Knuckles stopped by to share his storied history with us. The depth of his relationship with Tupac Shakur. How Pete Rock saved his life. His deep relationship with NaS. How Chuck D literally had his life on the line for this culture. Another Steve Stoute story. And why, even though the rumors about him being the toughest guy in Hip Hop is exaggerated, no one should ever step to him in any club, even if they're holding a sharpened weapon. I love this interview. We're back to what we do, no hype, no shenanigans, no CEO beef, no industry shakedown, just the greatest rap stories you've never heard.

The Joie Manda Episode
01:19:57
Who is Joie Manda? Why is his name being mentioned so much these days? Is he a "culture vulture"? And how did he get to be a representative of Black music? For someone who hasn't done a lot of public speaking, he speaks a great deal about these questions and more on this one.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/TheCombatJackShow/~4/FqH97rn_Wes" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

The Marley Marl Episode
02:09:28
We mention others as being on GOAT super producer status, but I'm not hearing Marley Marl's name. Which is criminal. Listen to how Marley literally changed the game and pushed the art form. Hear him talk about the discoveries of Rakim, Big Daddy Kane, Kool G Rap. Learn about how he inadvertently produced his own dis track "The Bridge Is Over", what happened to the Juice Crew, and more. After this episode, you're guaranteed to acknowledge his place amongst the greatest whoever did it.

The Combat Jack Show: The Pharoahe Monch Episode
01:46:16
Pharoahe Monch has been a favorite MC of mine for a long time so it only makes sense that we deliver his best interview in existence. In support of his brilliant album 'P.T.S.D.' we had an in studio listening session as Monch gave us his most personal interview to date. Who knew he used to carry them blammers? Who knew he was fed a deadly drug cocktail that took him to the edge of insanity? Who knew he was a heavy DipSet fan? Or liked 2 Chainz/ What other MC admits getting murked on his own song? I really enjoyed this session. I hope you do too. Stand the fuck up!<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/TheCombatJackShow/~4/T8i3pWZIv-M" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

The Combat Jack Show: The "Nigger" Episode feat. Sean C. & L.V. and Hakin Greem
01:35:32
What's in a word? Obviously a lot as far as "nigger" is concerned. The media and politicians say "ban it" but how impossible is it to make the world's most dangerous word disappear from existence? And do we really know what it means? Hakim Green of Channel Live fame walks us through this black word's history, it's etymology, and explains why this word will never go away, and why we should embrace and cherish rather than shun it. Also, Sean C. and L.V. talk their musical history and why we should cop their new album 'Loud Dreams' for only $Free Ninety Nine. My lips is like an oowop as I start to spray it.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/TheCombatJackShow/~4/1KSpK_kPbnY" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>
