Episode 69- Last Shall Be First with guests The Last Poets

This week we are honored to be joined by Abiodun Oyewole and Umar Bin Hassan of The Last Poets. Their music combined beats and rhymes well before what we now know as hip-hop existed and they have amazing stories to share about the 60’s, their fellow proto-rap pioneers, and how to use jail time to improve your life. This one is a must-listen for everyone, not just hip-hop heads, to soak up the wisdom of two very special gentlemen.
