Empire‘s Malik Yoba and music industry vet Shanti Das sit for a chat with Combat Jack and Premium Pete in the latest episode of the Combat Jack Show. The pair talk their origins respective successes in the entertainment industry. Yoba discusses his history of visionary ideas and drops one hell of a spoiler for anyone still living under a rock that somehow missed the season finale of Empire. Das holds it down for the ladies in honor of Women’s History Month with an amazing rundown of her resume and impact on music. She also gives listeners a taste of the advice she provides in her book The Hip-Hop Professional 2.0. This mixed bag full of goodies comes with a breakdown from Combat Jack:
From The Bronx to Hollywood, Malik Yoba shares how he came up with ‘Cool Runnings’, the success that was ‘New York Undercover’, what happened to the Black Hollywood of the 1990’s and what it is now. He also talks how he was underutilized and how [SPOILER ALERT!!] Vernon Turner was prematurely killed off in the current cultural phenomena that is ‘Empire’ and more. Plus, legendary record woman Shanti Das talks Women’s History month and her accomplishments in the music business.
