Come on Bruh (PLEASE IM BEGGING YOU) DON’T LET THIS ARCHIVE GO AWAY! I know you guys are making a concentrated effort to do something new and introducing a new show on this platform was cool. But your four episodes in which means eventually if continued the combat jack archive is goin to deleted. As a fan since 2013 i enjoy going back and listening to interviews and find ones i missed. i hope that one of you guys (A king or Chris ) see this n just give the new show its own outlet completely. The internets need the combat jack show cuz all we got is us ✊🏿

RIP Combat Jack

by FailingSince1976 on
Rating: ★★★★★

This is one of the few times I’m devastated by someone who is in the business dying. Combat was the definition of an evolved human being. He took a Zen like approach to everything, even when he was diagnosed with colon cancer. I am not giving this show five stars because of Combats untimely death, it deserves five stars because the content has always been solid. Even with guests I didn’t like, Combat always found a way to be engaging enough to break through the monotony that interviews sometimes bring. This is like the hip-hop version of Marc Maron’s “WTF” podcast. Dude is going to be missed and so is this show, because I can’t conceive of the rest of the crew continuing without him.

The Oral-History of Hip Hop

by nu4jm6 on
Rating: ★★★★★

I finally figured this podcast out. Combat Jack is an amazing interviewer. He could easily be a social scientist (he is one) with is interview technique. He probes the interviewer to provide insight into their life, happenstance, risk-taking, and whether our not they saw the success (or sometimes lack of recognition) in the lore if the Hip Hop world. I grew up with KDAY in LA. I was too young to go clubbin' but heard The World Class Wreckin Cru, Run DMC, UTFO, etc... but I have gaps in my hip hop knowledge. At some point I got bored with hip hop... but there was always a sweet spot for GOOD hip hop (with a west coast bias). I found my niche in indie hop hop... still hip hop kept evolving.I am going back and catching up with this podcast. YOU HAVE HUMANIZED HIP HOP ARTISTS!! They have real-life stories, families, challenges, and successes. They philosophize, pay wisdom forward... you get to the meaning behind the glitter and really make us enjoy the artist as a person.Don't let this living document of a podcast stop... keep up the amazing good work of documenting hip hop culture.

Great show and fantastic interviewer

I really enjoy the content of this show, I've learned a lot about hip hop from this podcast and I think combat jack Is a fantastic interviewer. Although I do wish sometimes he was not so hype and talkative when interrrupting guest from finishing their response it can be annoying at times.

The G Herbo show was great! Every young and old head should hear it. The growth he showed just from the time he was on Taxstone podcast makes me feel hopeful for our youth. Good job Jack and stay blessed G Herbo.

Peace and blessings Combat Jack and staff. I’m a fan of your podcast every since I listened to the John Forte episode which I found to be amazing. I appreciate your willingness to sometimes submit yourself to the guess and often just let them talk while before getting off track. I just listened to a funk flex interview of Don Diva CEO Kevin Chiles and the whole time I’m listening I’m wishing that it was you interviewing this man. It would be of great service to your listeners to interview this man, especially to those like myself, who are young and black and come from a certain culture. We need more of these stories from individuals who come from our culture and made a change to something more positive. May the creator continue to stay with you

Although the episodes surround some of the best in hip hop music and culture, it is not just about the music; just the sheer wisdom about life and rich experiences that is shared on these episodes from some of the very best sets this podcast apart from all others.

Terrific podcast that's guarenteed to make you think...about art, about race, about American culture in general. So glad I stumbled onto this after listening to Mogul. This podcast should be required listening for all social studies classes in this country. 5 stars, "dream those dreams"

Been listening to the Combat Jack show since 2011. Not to lament the old days, but the DJ Ben Hameen mixes, the irreverent commentary of Dallas Penn and Pete...if not for copyright b.s. the archives would be so much deeper. Combat is a great interviewer and there's a lot to appreciate with the curation of guest. #raisethebar

5 star review

by ModernSouthernGirl on
Rating: ★★★★★

I would not call myself a big fan of the hip hop genre. I think I 've purchased 2 hip hop albums (Gen X listener) in my life time. However, I did attend 2 shows, The Beastie Boys wth Public Enemey and Junior Mafia, Lil Kim, Notorious B.I.G. with Jodeci. I wanted to experience a hip hop concert. The concerts were okay. I didn't think your podcast would be for me considering the theme of the show. I was wrong. I really really enjoy listening to your podcast. I've learned so much. I really do appreciate the talented artist behind the hip hop music. I am a podcast junkie subscribing to about 30 podcasts and growing. Your podcast is in my top 10 podcasts that I always listen to on a weekly basis. Thank you for your guests and topics; keep up the great work. One thing, do you think you could try and reduce the number of times you interrupt your guests. It doesn't reflect favorably on your dynamic interviewing style. It also probably throws of your guest..Just my two cents. (The Real - Podcast)

Keep it up Jack!

Thank you combat for setting the bar high on my podcast experience. You were the first podcast I started listening to two years ago and always looking forward to new episodes. Nothing compares to how insightful and smooth your interviews go. You do not limit your selection to just one industry. I thoroughly enjoying learning about what someone is doing in the literary, film, music, and political arena. You have a clear purpose with each interview and I am very appreciative for this service.

Yeesh...this guy says "Internets", every 3 seconds and it's super annoying. I was a previous subscriber but re-subscribed to listen to this CTG interview. Guess I'll give him another chance b/c he is very knowledgeable in he's subject matter.

by Righteouse on
Rating: ★★★★★

Combat, 5 stars, because I like what your podcast is about. Don't change up, because you at least let the guest Speak, Something That Drink Champs doesn't do. Because of NORE, I don't know what happened to "Havoc's" upper account being hacked, because he cuts everyone off. On another Note, I heard the conversation with Dame on Drink Champs. Here's the reality; Code of Honor Dude! You cannot Do things for money, and interview people who are beefing with Damon Dash. If you want your podcast to stay relavent, you have to have a code that your listeners can relate to. Stop doing things for money, letting These culture vultures, defend themselves. That was a losing move, nomatter how you defend it. You have to stand on principles. Show is still dope, just remember to maintain principles my G.
