I don’t really respect a lot of people in this wonderful world of music I live in. I don’t really like those people, either. However, Combat Jack is an exception to that rule, as I’ve respected and appreciated him as not only a hip hop luminary but as a person as well. Alongside his dense credentials in urban entertainment, Jack – aka Reggie Ossé, is also an accomplished lawyer who’s seen and forgotten more than you’ve ever learned.
Recently Jack was invited to do a TED Talk, “Living Inside And Outside of the Hip Hop Revolution,” and if you have the free time (which you probably might, if you’re stuck at home due to this snow out East) you should definitely watch this.
