Got to sit down with a dude who I will forever be connected to. When I hosted the Fakebook series Chuck D was my very special guest, Brother Ali and Slug were my musical guests, We were all nervous and in complete awe of Chuck and here we're doing our thing in front of someone we all were so honored to meet who had been so inspiring to us all.

It bonded us all together because we all considered it a personal and professional highlight.

Brother Ali is someone who has something to say both in his music and in person I know how silly it is to say but that is RARE.
