Last week my brothers Meka from 2DopeBoyz, Lowkey of YouHeardThatNew and Mikey Fresh of played a few throwback joints for Styles and asked him some questions. Topics covered include working with DJ Premier on “Recognize”, the LOX mixtape classic “Who Did You Expect”, how he ended up with a beat from Havoc during the D-Block/G-Unit conflict, the importance of an atmosphere of competition amongst MCs and much more.

Pharoahe Monch on The Combat Jack Show

Tuesday, April 22nd, 2014

Monch joins Jack and company for a sit-down.

Says Combat:

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!

Jessica Rosenblum on The Combat Jack Show

Tuesday, March 18th, 2014

NYC nightlife matron Jessica Rosenblum joins the Combat Jack Show crew to talk about her storied career and Dallas Penn reveals how he helped orchestrate the Polo Heist of the Century.

Says Jack:

You think you know the history of New York Hip Hop? You really don’t know Jack until you talk to Jessica Rosenblum. Hear her talk about her role in opening the downtown NYC nightlife scene to Russell Simmons, Lyor Cohen, the Beastie Boys and LL Cool J. Listen as she shares about her role in making a then unknown Sean “Diddy” Combs into a household name. Learn as she walks us through what really happened that fateful night at the tragic CCNY event and why she wasn’t responsible. Marvel at how she decided to build Funk Master Flex into the brand that he is today. Take in her close and meaningful relationship with the late, great Chris Lighty. We only scratched the surface as to this woman’s integral role in contributing to this culture, but this episode’s lessons is an important and mostly overlooked in this thing we call rap. PLUS: Dallas Penn shares how he single handedly broke the Internets with his ingenious execution of Pologate.

Russell Simmons on The Combat Jack Show

Tuesday, March 11th, 2014

Jack and Dallas walk Uncle Rush through his first ever podcast experience. Legendary topics was broached. Russ shows up about 15 minutes in.

The Godfather of this whole damb thing, Rush broke bread reflecting on his time as a gang member, small time drug dealer, how Hip Hop saved his life, why DJ Hollywood should be remembered in the rap history books, why Diddy is the man he his today, Rick Rubin, Lyor Cohen, Dame Dash, how he’s not hung up on the word “nigga”…. so much covered that we had to end it with a lesson in meditation, literally. I’ve seen a lot in my life, but I never thought I’d see the day when a real life rap yogi would be walking us down memory lane. Please run cop Russell’s new book “Success Through Stillness: Meditation Made Simple” co-written by our very own Chris Morrow here.
