Today’s new episode features an LA-based lyricist who has been building a solid fanbase with jazz-soaked, soul-led rhymes that reflect on life, love, and music.
With his highly respected Jazz & Coffee series, he has consequently supported the likes of Bizarre Ride, People Under The Stairs, and more as a solo artist and with his group Revolutionary Rhythm. This is Diggin’ The Crates, with Kid Abstrakt.
This episode of the DTC podcast is supporting the upcoming paperback release of God Save The Queens – The Essential History of Women in Hip Hop by Kathy Iandoli. The book covers every facet of the scene, from early lyricists such as Roxanne Shante and Queen Latifah to the current superstars of the scene, and explores gender, money, sexuality, objectification, and more.
