VIDEO: Combat Jack talks Living Inside and Outside of the Hip-Hop Revolution at TEDxGowanus


Combat Jack, a Haitian radio personality and host of The Combat Jack Show, talks living inside and outside of the hip hop revolution at TEDxGowanus.

Reggie Ossé has been on the front lines of Hip Hop culture since it began. Growing up in NYC, eventually becoming an attorney for up-and-coming Rap stars (Jay-Z and Damon Dash to name a few), and now as the host of The Combat Jack Show podcast, Ossé didn't just witness Hip Hop's ascendency to popular culture, he also helped create it. But as the culture he knows and loves became assimilated into the mainstream, he could not help but feel pushed to the outside... influencing but not participating in an America in which he is an icon.
