This week brings us another Those People installment of “Pod People” where we’re joined by podcasters who cover the types of people we’re talking to.
In volume 2 we’re kicking it with creatives & this week we’re joined by Uncle Vick - a Podcast Host, former MC and lifelong hiphop head who’s been covering the culture, and it’s creators, for a LONG time.
As it’s black history month, we start focusing on the black experience Vick’s closeness with it, and the circumstances that estranged Mitch from it, before diving into giant families, being raised by drug dealers, interracially dating and SO much more.
Vick is a fellow founder of Blank Kanvas, a collective of creators ranging from rappers to podcast hosts, fashion designers to videographers helping one another create, grow and finance their dreams.
We were first brought together through a fan group of the Joe Budden Podcast and have since become close friends, and I was super excited to share this interview back to back with the Matthew Harris one, as a Ying and Yang of the black experience in close proximity - despite being in two entirely different countries and eras.
Vick is self described as one of Those…#Passionate, #longwinded, #misunderstood, #artsy, #selfaware People.
