    Current Tingz

    On this episode, I was joined by Lori from the Current Tingz blog. We discussed several topics from the Shacarri incident that led to the Twitter beef between Jamaicans and African Americans. According to some Black Americans, being Jamaican, you can't be Black, so discussed this in dept. Lori also gave her view on the current music and why she is still a big fan of the old school, even though she is from the younger generation. Please listen and enjoy!

Represent Well

As a podcaster and Jamaican as well I've been looking for a conversation that still makes me feel connected to my roots. The real conversation never pulls up.

Must tune in!!

Hey Nick you have no idea how much I enjoy listening to your podcast. As a Jamaican living abroad I’m always trying to find that connection to home but with a perspective that spans the waters.

Keep up the good work man! Respect!
