    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.

The best

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.
