Diggin’ The Crates S01E05: Egon (Now-Again)

For this episode, we return to 2016 when I met Egon, one of the most influential people within J Dilla and Madlib‘s careers alongside the ascension of Stones Throw and the development of Now-Again Records and the J Dilla Foundation. Talking about music, passion, perseverance, and creativity in broader forms, this is a rare and reflective interview with an unsung hero of hip hop.
