Hip-Hop Historian NuFAce
This week's guest Larry "NuFace" Compton. NuFace is known by many as the guy on Instagram who seems to have just about every classic Hip-Hop album (and the merch to match) ever! He is in the process of building out his own museum to celebrate Hip-Hop culture. In addition to sharing stories about his journey from Detroit to Atlanta, he also talks about the cool moments he has shared with some of your favorite artists.   1:00 NuFace talks about leaving Detroit and coming to Atlanta for college (Clark Atlanta University). Like so many others, Freaknik was a big reason why wound up there. He also talks about how his father influenced him as an artist. NuFace then reveals that he fell into collecting things via neighborhood friends going away to jail and their parents giving him their toys because they knew "he'd take care of them."   5:30 NuFace actually remembers the first things he collected. Salt-N-Pepa, 2 Live Crew, Too $hort and Dr. Dre got him started. Mainly because of the explicit album covers and content and the attention it drew. He also credits his mother for not throwing his things away when he left for school.   9:45 NuFace talks about how he began forging relationships with his favorite artists by presenting them with tapes and other artifacts they don't even have anymore. From this, he plans to open a museum celebrating Hip-Hop history.   15:00 NuFace talks about how he takes care of all of his precious cargo. He also talks about if he thinks more people go back to buying physical copies of music and how more artists should consider producing more physical copies of their music.   20:45 NuFace says he has a "Clark Kent shoe closet" worth of Hip-Hop collectibles when asked how much space he thinks his things will take up. He also speaks on how it's actually hard to have company over for dinner or chill because people are always distracted by his collection and want a tour.   24:40 NuFace talks about how people can help support his vision of building a museum. He also shares details on his upcoming A3C event.   29:40 NuFace talks about the time he got the late Nipsey Hussle to sign his "Victory Lap" cassette and how the artist remembered him the next time he saw him.   34:00 NuFace lists his bucket list of items he wants to add to his collection or get signed. He also shares a hilarious story about trying to get DMX to sign his "Flesh of My Flesh, Blood of my Blood" album at Art Basel in Miami.

Everybody Got Choices
There was quite a bit to catch up and talk about this week, which is why Branden and Maurice are delivering another no guest show. This week they discussed the new Dave Chappelle "Sticks and Stones" Netflix comedy special, Malik Yoba's recent, er, revelation, and how the media approached Kevin Hart's recent car accident. They also chopped it up about some of the new music they are enjoying right now. Side note: not sure how neither one of them managed to mention the new Villain Park album on air, but yeah, go check that out too, they both like it.   3:00 - Dave Chappelle's special. Maurice has already watched it four times and Branden actually went to go see it live when it was taped in Atlanta, so yeah, they have plenty to say about it. But even beyond that, they discuss why and how it is so easy for everyone to have so much to say about Chappelle's brand of comedy, that hasn't really changed since the 90s.   7:14 - Malik Yoba finds transsexual women attractive? Actor Malik Yoba sent shockwaves through social media when he managed to reveal that he find transsexual women attractive and that he will be a guest speaker at an upcoming transsexual conference. This comes on the heels of him expressing sympathy over a recent story about a man who mocked for having sex with transsexuals. Branden and Reese explore what Yoba's true motives may be and why so much fuss is being made over his revelation.    23:00 Kevin Hart's car accident sparks rumors. Kevin Hart is not a lot of people's favorite person these days. So much that when it was reported that he was in a car accident, he was simultaneously getting accused of being in the car doing things with a woman who was not his wife. Branden asks why the media was so quick to "Teddy Pendergrass" Hart.   26:00 New Music. Branden and Reese have a pretty lengthy talk about Rapsody's new album and if she should be considered an elite MC.   35:00 One Music Fest. The 10th annual One Music Fest is happening this weekend in Atlanta and Branden and Maurice talk about how far the festival has come and what they are looking forward to seeing this weekend.   Day 1 Radio podcast is available on Apple Podcasts, Google Play, IHeartRadio, Spotify, Stitcher, Radio Public, and CLNS Mobile Media app. Follow us on Twitter, FB, and IG at @day1radio
About The People w/Coffey & Nashawn Kearse
This week's episode of Day 1 Radio features two men behind a short film that is bound to strike up plenty of conversations once it's shown to the masses. The film's writer and producer Coffey and actor Nashawn Kearse stopped by to talk about About the People, a short film that can best be described as a fly-on-the-wall view of the conversation that Black people in America have after each police shooting or any other injustice African-Americans almost exclusively experience. Coffey and Kearse share what it's been like touring the festival circuit, creating the film and what they hope viewers walk away with after watching.   1:15 - About the People got a standing ovation at a Martha's Vineyards film festival. But Coffee admits that the applause was hard to enjoy given that many of the issues talked about in the film continue to happen.  4:00 - Nashawn talks about why he chose to take this role and Coffey speaks on the reactions he got from the rest of the cast when they first read the script. Nashawn calls it "our version of '12 Angry Men.'    6:00 - The emotions ran very high on the set. Nashawn describes it as "raw." Coffey talks about how this high-powered cast came together.    13:30 - About the People left no stones unturned as they talked about some rarely spoken about realities from the Civil Rights movement and how that impacted future generations.    17:00 - Coffey admits that while most of the feedback on the film has been positive, not every film festival has been willing to show it.    22:00 - The guest and the hosts share their thoughts on recent events including Eric Garner's killer Daniel Pantaleo getting six-figure GoFundMe donations and the NYPD Sergeant who oversaw him only getting punished by losing vacation days.   35:30 - Nashawn and Coffey share their aspirations for the film and hopes it gives people ideas.  Day 1 Radio podcast is available on Apple Podcasts, Google Play, IHeartRadio, Spotify, Stitcher, Radio Public, and CLNS Mobile Media app. Follow us on Twitter, FB, and IG at @day1radio
