Actor, producer and legendary Brand Nubian emcee Lord Jamar finally launched his highly requested own podcast titled the Yanadameen Godcast with Lord Jamar on 7 January 2018. After a series of memorable, no-holds-barred interviews with STAR and solo on VladTV on a whole multitude of controversial topics, Jamar has further developed his cult-like status as a hip-hop commentator even further beyond his impressive Brand Nubian audience.
Now with his own new weekly one-hour hip-hop based talk show, there are indeed no punches pulled and political correctness is well and truly thrown way out the window. Only six weeks in, his Godcast has already proved immensely popular and built up quickly a successful following as was widely anticipated.
For episode #006 of his Yanadameen Godcast, Jamar had Rah Digga on his show to talk all things on Quincy Jones, Marlon Brando, Richard Pryor and beyond last night. With Jamar speculating that a female dynamic to his podcast could be beneficial by pointing to the energy that the Breakfast Club with DJ Envy, Angela Yee and Charlamagne Tha God as well as Sway In The Morning with Heather B both enjoy, time will only tell if Rah Digga will become a permanent fixture on the popular new independent platform.
The award-winning New Jersey rapper Rah Digga herself has had a highly successful solo and formerly as part of the Flipman Squad with Busta Rhymes, Baby Sham, Rampage, Spliff Star and Lord Have Mercy in the 1990s / early 2000s. Rah Digga has sold over a million units worldwide and has worked with the likes of Pete Rock, Nottz, DJ Premier Eve, RZA, DMX, DJ Envy, Fugees amongst many more. Her solo debut studio album Dirty Harriet released in 2000 on Flipmode/Elektra charted particularly well and remains her most complete critically acclaimed release.
