In Part 2 of this episode, Kamron, D'Andre, Freetown Collective and Jimmy October pick up from where they left off. They continue to talk about the lack of transparency in the local music industry, the lack of succession planning and the dog eat dog nature of the industry, assuming that an industry actually exists. They also talk about the responsibility of an artiste, the value of telling stories in art and the importance of authenticity in the creative process. Listen to the continuation of Episode 1 as they all share moments of adversity within the industry and steps that should be taken in order to push the culture forward.

Love how raw and unfiltered this podcast is. As a young person I feel very inspired and motivated by these two girls who are following their passion and discussing topics that most would avoid. If there is one message that I have taken from ‘Recess: Creative Convos’, it would be work hard and dont be afraid to fail. Looking forward to Season 2!
This is so needed in the Caribbean. These two young people are amazing spokespersons for their generation of creatives. Looking forward to hearing more from them.
