Rap’s album release party coming up at NYC’s B.B. King Blues Club).

Manny also welcomed to the groundbreaking new video format, the DMV-to-NYC lyrical and substantive dynamo known as Napoleon Da Legend. This talented lyricist has dropped well-produced, thoughful and head-nod worthy bangers for years, and just recently — off of the strength of his two recent mixtapes Steal This Mixtape and Steal This Mixtape Too — spoke on the concept of “Black Privilege,” both through his music, and as it relates in particular to Charlamagne Tha God, who reecently penned a now best-selling book by the same name.
In fact, the two men had a brief encounter due to the mutual appreciation for the phrase, which left Napoleon Da Legend feeling some type of way about CThaGod’s true motivation.
Manny Faces invited Napoleon Da Legend to the show to discuss his recent music, #BlackPrivilege as HE sees it, and what Charlamagne Tha God might could have done better.
As always, New York hip hop music and culture was represented and reported on in a way that no one besides Manny Faces could deliver, as he broke down some of the recent news and releases that are important to the NY-area hip-hop community and fanbase.
