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 Joey Bada$$ on The Combat Jack Show, the young MC explained how he used the Internet to establish his presence as a rapper. After posting music on websites like Myspace and YouTube, Joey started to realize the impact this "virtual city" could have. "People from all around the world knew about me before people in my neighborhood," he said.
Joey stated soon afterward his now-manager Jonny Shipes reached out to him on Twitter, however, he was apprehensive to talk business with someone he did not know. "Who is this dude?" he initially thought. After learning more about Shipes and his Cinematic Music Group company, the Brooklyn rapper saw an opportunity to pursue what he sought out to become.
