Freddie Foxxx on The Combat Jack Show

Friday, June 27th, 2014


The legendary Freddie Foxxx aka Bumpy Knuckles appeared on the The Combat Jack Show and shared a lot of unfiltered rap history. Freddie discussed meeting Chuck D during a time where his life was on the line for the culture, his relationship with Tupac, being down with the Paid In Full Posse (Eric B.), his battle-rapping past, what happened with Queen Latifah/Flavor Unit, getting blackballed by Steve Stoute, what business lessons he learned from being around Naughty by Nature/D.I.T.C., being around Nas during his beef with Jay-Z and of course, his most famous beatdown stories dispelled.

I’m probably forgetting a lot but the full 2 hours is worth the time.
