    Back 2 Africa (feat. K.Q. & Frax)

    For our 12th episode, we're joined by Charlotte artist K.Q. and friend of the show, Frax!

    With us being a Charlotte-based podcast, we wanted to highlight talent in the city  and offer a platform for local artists to express their views and showcase their humanity. This is not an interview -- this is a DOPE conversation.  K.Q. released a new project in January entitled, "Movies" that's available on all Digital streaming platforms! If you enjoy him in this setting, check out his music and follow his IG (@kant_quit).

    We begin our conversation by discussing Drake's influence on Hip-Hop as a whole, as well as the influence of Hip-Hop across the globe. Our dialogue then takes a shift to discuss the importance of self-awareness, cultural pride & how education is so important.
