Tune in for a very candid conversation between KJ-52 and DJ Wade-O. The two discuss KJ’s quest to break the Team Freestyle Guiness Book of World Record as well as his decision to move on from BEC Recordings upon fulfilling his contract after last year’s release of Dangerous.
Perhaps the most interesting part of the conversation is their discussion of the Stellar Awards and the snub of Andy Mineo in this year’s Gospel Rap category. KJ raises the question of whether race played in role in Andy’s exclusion from the nominees.
