    Chaunté Wayans on the Pressures of Being Hollywood Royalty, Substance Abuse in Comedy, and More

    Chaunté Wayans on the Pressures of Being Hollywood Royalty, Substance Abuse in Comedy, and More

    Chaunté Wayans is very, very funny. But she’s also deeply aware of the pressure of her family name and the expectations that come with that. In fact, it’s what led to one of her funniest bits—a joke about delivering food while also appearing on TV. (Google “Chaunté Wayans and Postmates” to see what we mean.)

    That reflective approach to comedy and to her own life serves Chaunté well, and has made her both a better comic and a more thoughtful person. In this week's conversation both aspects are on display as she speaks candidly about: meeting her father for the first time, the power and drawbacks of her family name, giving advice to other young comics, and more. 

    The episode is a funny and super insightful look at a rising star in the comedy scene.

    Krondon Drops Gems About Undoing Trauma, Strong Arm Steady, X Clan, and More

    Krondon Drops Gems About Undoing Trauma, Strong Arm Steady, X Clan, and More

    You want a complicated man? A seeker and thinker and brilliant multi-hyphenate? You gotta check our episode with Krondon. The actor-rapper-author-speaker brings it in this episode--giving us plenty of laughs and revealing his inspiring thought processes. 

    From plumbing the depths of his character Tobias Whale on CW’s Black Lightning to breaking down the “5 Ps” of trauma that need to be undone to live happily (you’ve got to hear it to fully get it), Krondon drops so many gems that it’s hard to track them all. But as much as big ideas and his acting work are on the table, there’s also plenty of rap chat, including lots of talk about the artist’s legendary LA group, Strong Arm Steady. 

    This episode is riveting in all the best ways, and is sure to captivate new and longtime Krondon fans.

    R.A. The Rugged Man Talks White Rappers, “Uncommon Valor”, & Tells The Story Of His Track With Biggie Meant To Troll Record Execs

    You’ve been waiting for this one. So have we. Ever since we started this show, we knew we’d be having R.A. the Rugged Man join the People’s Party and today is that day.

    So what do longtime friends and collaborators R.A. and Kweli get into during this expansive interview? Everything. Including old beefs, the dynamics between white rappers, R.A.’s Biggie stories, and a deep dive into the legendary track “Uncommon Valor.” Seriously, if you go for that old school NYC rap and like to know the subplots and stories told in that era, this episode is an absolute must-listen.

    Goapele Talks About her Activist Upbringing, the Bay Area Music Scene, Collaborations with E-40 and More

    Goapele Talks About her Activist Upbringing, the Bay Area Music Scene, Collaborations with E-40 and More

    Goapele is a true songstress. Her albums Closer, Even Closer, Change It All, Break of Dawn, Strong as Glass, and DreamSeeker are a combination of ethereal and straightforward – with soaring vocals, strong rhythms, and direct lyrics. 

    That directness is one of the joys of this interview with the Bay Area native. She discusses everything from her upbringing, music, and collaborations, to her experience as a parent--all with equal levels of candor. 

    If you know Goapele’s music, this is a must-listen. If you’re not switched on to this deeply talented artist yet, now’s a perfect chance!

    Kid, from Kid ‘N Play, on Growing Up Biracial, the Origins of the Famous Kick Step, Sharing the Bill with Gangster Rappers, and More

    Kid, from Kid ‘N Play, on Growing Up Biracial, the Origins of the Famous Kick Step, Sharing the Bill with Gangster Rappers, and More

    Kid, from Kid 'n Play, has been in the game for a long time. We’re not the first to ask about his famous hightop fade or the kickstep. The difference is that when he comes to People’s Party with Talib Kweli, those convos are set in a new context. 

    In this riveting convo, Kid speaks freely about growing up biracial with racist relatives, being looked at as less Black because of the music he made, pressure to keep his iconic hightop fade, and so much more. It’s a truly insightful conversation with a rap lion. A deep dive into one of the godfathers of the whole damn game.
