Video: Combat Jack Gives A TED Talk

Would you look at this. They invited the big homie Combat Jack to give his very own TED Talk. I’m proud of this guy right here.

Reggie Ossé has been on the front lines of Hip Hop culture since it began. Growing up in NYC, eventually becoming an attorney for up-and-coming Rap stars (Jay-Z and Damon Dash to name a few), and now as the host of The Combat Jack Show podcast, Ossé didn’t just witness Hip Hop’s ascendency to popular culture, he also helped create it. But as the culture he knows and loves became assimilated into the mainstream, he could not help but feel pushed to the outside… influencing but not participating in an America in which he is an icon.

    I wonder how many people in audience know he’s talking about Ebro near the end.
