Nobody does real talk like Reggie Ossé a.k.a. Combat Jack. The former rap industry attorney, media executive, author, and Internet radio talk-show personality now hosts The Combat Jack Show, where hip-hop's biggest names are put on the front line. The questions will be tough—and shots will be fired. Co-hosted by Dallas Penn, Premium Pete, and Just Blaze, The Combat Jack Show appears every Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday on Complex TV.
In part one of our three part interview with Action Bronson on The Combat Jack Show, Action described his childhood, family life, and how he got into hip-hop. He recounts an early memory, in which he and his friends were out and about listening to N.W.A.'s Niggaz4Life when a neighbor told his father.
His dad took objection to this musical choice, and subsequently slapped a nine-year-old Bronson and tossed out the rest of his music selections. This story doesn't have a sad-ending, though, as his mother would eventually buy back the music that was initially thrown out. "That's a ride or die bitch; I love her," said Bronson.
Action Bronson's collaborative album with producer Harry Fraud, Saaab Stories, is out now.
