We spoke with Alfred Obiesie, author of “You Made It A Hot Line,” which is a dope book which analyzes the significance of the most influential lyrics in Hip-Hop history. We speak with Alfred about his book and his life, including his introduction to Hip-Hop, his production credits (including selling a beat to Nas & Damien Marley and getting a check signed by Jay Z), working in the financial sector during the time of the great financial collapse of 2008, what it is like to be a black man in the finance industry, how he literally died and came back to life, and his transition into writing and creating a platform and business which allows him to be independent. There’s a lot of gems in this episode, so check it out!
