This one is for Dave. A full set of music from De La Soul, with words from Skyy Hook of the legendary Wake Up Show, Dave Zirin from The Nation, Gabriel Teodros and a bunch of other friends.
"Years just blow by
My eyes stay fixed but the picture's kinda out of focus
I cry a lot but admit to it
Enjoying life now but I've been through it
Sometimes I wish that I can go back
No bills no kids just getting tore back
I want a wife, I love women
How could I front like I don't be in love wit em?
A little man that I can teach
A little sand but not the beach
I figure excess'll only bring an excessive amount of fuss
So when I'm gone, make sure the head stone reads: He did it for us."
Trugoy the Dove, "Trying People"

Gregory Jacobs was a genius. I've seen this repeated all over social media, by so many people who knew him, studied him, grew up in Bay Area scene he gave so much to. So much creativity in him it couldn't be contained in one person, he had to create a Shock G, Humpty, a Piano Man.
And those who knew him best will tell you we still never got to see and hear the half of it, because he was that soul for whom the spotlight is more stress than sustenance. Which makes it all the more precious to me how he leaves behind such a dope musical legacy, built on showing all of us nerds and oddballs we have a seat at the table and a place on the dance floor.
This week we try our best to honor the great Shock G, with a special mix from Tamara aka T Money including rarities and excerpts from her interviews with him.
Groovy tunes and convo.
Appreciate the music and community.
Love the show, and now I can listen even when I didn’t catch it live
Jay Smooth’s radio show aired live at a time I couldn’t tune in very often, but now it comes to me! I’m so excited. Always insightful and inclusive, and spinning the music my soul needs. I’m so glad to have this podcast to look forward to, in a time where there just ain’t that much life-giving left in our media.
