Jussie Smollett meets us in Arkansas + Roxanne Shante and Chante Adams on finally telling this hip hop legends story
Our podcast cup runneth over this week with three special guests: Jussie Smollett (@jussiesmollett) who, hours after wrapping up a project in Memphis, drove through the night so he could spend the afternoon with us in Bentonville, Arkansas. During our live recording, Jussie gave us a preview of his new album Sum of My Music and why he celebrates Black History Month every day. Back in New York, we sit down with hip-hop legend Roxanne Shante (@ImroxanneShante) and the ingénue who plays her, Chanté Adams (@chanteaadams), in Netflix’s biopic Roxanne, Roxanne.
