JSC Radio Ep. 54: Lone Star State of Mind


PHILADELPHIA (JSC) —  What Up Doe, people! The People’s Podcast rolls on and this week is all about the crowning of a new champion, the Houston Astros.

Baseball is a clear theme on this show, and while Game 7 of the World Series was a relative dud compared to the first six games (and all seven of last year’s), this year’s Fall Classic showed the world once again why Baseball will always be king.

Plus, the Lions are still the Lions and Detroit is still Detroit (thanks Cardi B).

JSC Words of Wisdom #5: Greatness Moves in Silence


Good Friday morning, Everyone! It’s time, once again, for the JSC Words of Wisdom, a.k.a. #JSCWOW. Reminder, This will drop every Friday morning, more often than not, at 6:00 am Eastern Time. Feel free to share this on your favorite social media outlet with the hashtag — #JSCWOW.

JSC Radio – Episode 4: Remembering Phife Dawg

PHILADELPHIA (JSC) —  I was first truly introduced to hip-hop in 1989, when I was in 4th Grade back home in Detroit. I had been hearing this music that the older kids in the neighborhood would play that was so much different from anything that my dad was playing in his basement and because my parents were so adamantly against me listening to it, it just made me want to hear a lot more of it. It started with early groups and artists like LL Cool J, Run-D.M.C., Salt-N-Pepa, Biz Markie, and Big Daddy Kane and eventually the first crew that caught my ear was Boogie Down Productions. What BDP — particularly KRS-One — did was introduce that love of lyricism that I STILL have today. By 1989, there was this group that I was forbidden from listening to. This crew out of Compton, Calif. named NWA that had this little album you may have heard of called Straight Outta Compton. That, of course, didn’t stop two of my older cousins from listening to the cassette during the summer of ’89 — these fools stuck the tape inside of my younger cousin’s Teddy Ruxpin and let it rip. NWA was like a revelation with their anti-establishment anger and energy. They were as much a movement as they were a rap group. They were like the Four Horsemen of Hip-Hop. By 1991, I was being reintroduced to hip-hop through a different sphere.  Continue reading JSC Radio – Episode 4: Remembering Phife Dawg

JSC Radio – Episode 1: What is JSC Radio?


PHILADELPHIA (JSC) —  So if you all recall, and considering it’s been damn near a year since I posted on this blog, I can tell you probably don’t, on April 20 of last year, I announced my rather ambitious mission to start a podcast called JSC Radio. As with many things that have gone on with me the last two years, plans changed abruptly and life threw me more than a few roadblocks and curveballs. However, after going through a pretty wild last 365 days: IT’S HERE. This is the debut episode of The Jay Scott Confidential Podcast, bka #JSCRadio.Let’s go!
