People's Party with Talib Kweli

JPEGMAFIA Talks Punk/Hip-Hop Connection, Kanye’s Politics, Ice Cube

S1, Ep. 40

In this episode of People’s Party, Talib Kweli and Jasmin Leigh sit down with rapper, singer and record producer JPEGMAFIA. As one of the most brazen, uncompromising, and unpredictable figures in hip hop today, in this interview JPEGMAFIA keeps it πŸ’―, true to form. The wide-ranging conversation includes his early years growing up in Flatbush, Brooklyn, and his move to Alabama at age 13, where he experienced prevalent racism. They also tackle gentrification, Ice Cube’s profound influence on both his and Talib’s unflinching approach to racism, the punk/hip hop connection, artist’s empowerment to control their public image once they’ve paid dues, and JPEG gives his take on Kanye’s support of Trump.
