The Jam! – Ep 13 w/ Jesse Fairfax

Episode 13 of The Jam! and here we are again with the homie Jesse Fairfax of Go In Radio, fresh off his bachelor status and into husband territory. Jesse and Chris have good insight into what it’s like being the groom and the role of a husband in keeping a marriage in tact. From that conversation we go into a topic I wanted to discuss: Where did all the good R&B go? While many people say Hip Hop is dead, R&B might as well be a black hole. While of course there is some good R&B music out there, seemingly there is especially a lack of new R&B artists that will hold the torch for the current millennial generation. I hold that Miguel is about the last great R&B artist, especially great male R&B artist.
From there we go into ‘White Jams”, and the qualities necessary for white artists to crossover into being accepted by Black audiences. Lastly we have a quick discussion on current “guilty pleasures” in the mainstream music scene.
Other topics include: slow jams, differences in music with your wife, White people and ratchets, R&B thugs, funky white boys, Columbusing, artists with performance anxiety, J Dilla, Death Metal, and THOTS.

It’s THE JAM! Dilla All Day…

Welcome back to The Jam!
On this episode we discuss the legendary J Dilla. One of the illest musicians, who led the charge of great Hip Hop music from Detroit. Since his passing in 2006, Dilla has also been a bit of a polarizing figure since many people feel he is being praised a bit too much. We discuss our favorite Dilla tracks/beats, the politics of music, and the “what ifs”.
Other topics include: The Soulquarians, how Dilla can help you find a soulmate, the physics of Funk, Napster, and how to appreciate creativity.

The Break w/ The Lion & The Ram – Leave The H Alone

In this episode KC and Chris discuss Phillip Seymour Hoffman’s death, George Zimmerman’s boxing match, motorcycle cops, school serving fried chicken for black history month, and happy birthday J Dilla.
