St. Laz is a veteran NYC rapper who has been on MTV, BET, & had several songs in rotation on Hot 97. He's collaborated with almost every prominent artist over generations, from Styles P to recent hit songs with Gunna & Roddy Rich. Before all that, however, Laz served a six-year prison sentence, followed by a few parole violations. His journey took him from Rikers Island to correctional institutions throughout the New York State Department of Corrections. He served time at some of the worse facilities, including Comstock, Ft. Greene, Franklin, & more.
In this show Laz will bring you the unfiltered truth of what really goes on inside of "correctional facilities" and he holds nothing back. Sometimes hilarious, sometimes disturbing, and always memorable, Laz will tell you just how barbaric, unnecessary, and damaging mass incarceration is, from the inmates, their families, all the way to the overpoliced communities the cycles begin in.

    I Hate Crack (Brooklyn Legacy)

    I Hate Crack (Brooklyn Legacy)

    Being released from prison presents ex-convicts with problems that are truly incomprehensible for those who haven't experienced them. Daily. Couple that with one of the most (by design) addictive drugs in history and you have this particularly gut-wrenching tale.

    Cybertron: The Decepticon Headquarters (Brooklyn Legacy)

    Cybertron: The Decepticon Headquarters (Brooklyn Legacy)

    In this episode of Brooklyn Legacy, Laz recounts his memories of the infamous Decepticons, and their "Cybertron" headquarters. This is a boots-on-the-ground tale, not the misinformation you'll get from the corporate media.Watch Part 1 HERE & Part 2 HEREListen to Laz's Hip-Hop podcast The Super Facts Show here.Follow St. Laz on Instagram here.Listen to St. Laz music here.From Wikipedia: "The Decepticons were a street gang or street organization that thrived from the late 80s through the early 90s. Their members were teenagers and young adults ranging from the age of 15 to their early 20s. The gang was most prominent in Brooklyn, but at their peak, the group consisted of multiple branches, or legions, all across New York City. In an interview with former Decepticon "General Steele", it is mentioned that there were legions of Decepticons in Clinton Hills, Flatbush, East Flatbush, and Bed Stuy Brooklyn, Harlem, Manhattan, and parts of Queens. Steele references in his interview how the Decepticons were all over the place in patches due to the group's upbringing. The legions would initially begin as a formation of a bond of bullied kids who needed strength in numbers. The original group of Decepticons started in Brooklyn, New York with three boys from two different schools. Two of the boys, who went by the names of Cyclonis and Rumble, went to Bushwick High School, and the other, called Megatron, went to Brooklyn Technical High School. They formed their bond in order to make sure no one would harm them. As those founding fathers found more people with common mindsets in the two schools they went to, their numbers grew, and soon after their small group morphed into a feared gang."

    This one isn't particularly centered around anything specific, it's really just a conversation between Laz & Mark. We definitely touch on some of the GenPop stuff, including PopaJock. Laz discusses his aspirations, the music he's sitting on, and what kind of film he'd like to make. Health is broached, particularly with the unfortunate recent spate of rap legends who've passed away, and a lot more.
