Mogul is a show about hip hop’s most iconic moments, told by the people who lived them. Season 2 dives into the birth of southern hip hop. It all started in Miami with the 2 Live Crew, a group that took hip hop and made it faster, harder, and nastier than anything anyone had heard before. But in 1990 their music was declared legally obscene, and what followed is known today as the most controversial trial in the history of hip hop. This group, this city and this trial changed the course of music history as we know it. Mogul Season 2 features exclusive interviews with Miami legends like Trick Daddy, Rick Ross, Trina, Luke Campbell, Brother Marquis, Mr. Mixx, Walshy Fire, and more.

Must listen!

This is sooo good! One of the best podcasts I’ve listened to. An amazing insight in to Chris Lighty’s life and hip hop in general.

Top-Notch Storytelling

This is a really, really great podcast. I wanted to write a review not just because it's good, but also because I think it deserves a much wider audience than it has. When I was in high school, I played the harp and listened to classical music. Hip hop not so much. I was super cool, I know. So I was a little worried that I might not know enough to follow Mogul. And that wouldn't necessarily be a dig at the podcast. If I'm not the target audience and it doesn't speak to me, so what? But after the first episode, I was hooked. I listened to every episode the day it came out. I would encourage everyone to give it a listen, especially people who think it might not be for them.
