ROT 003 Black 365 with Professor Jamaal Brown

In this episode:

The “Rappers Over Thirty” podcast host “Imp the Great” talks about the need to stop eating processed foods and its relation to diabetes. He urges people to pre-plan and prep meals and learn to cook healthy alternatives to their favorite overly processed foods.

Imp then has a serious conversation with scholar, educator, speaker, leader and graduate of "Les Brown’s Professional Speaking Training" Professor Jamaal Brown. The two discuss how Jamaal's basketball dreams were halted by heart surgery, his decision to chose books and education opposed to gangs, drugs, and entertainment.

The two also discuss slavery, Black Wall Street, community involvement, the "Black 365 Calendar" and the other educational products available on Jamaal's website.

Profile picture for Steven Laws

Steven Laws

My name is Steven “Imp The Great” Laws, I’m a rap music producer (By Any Means Music) and a filmmaker (From Rap To Film). I’m an accomplished rapper/emcee and novice filmmaker, and I enjoy cooking. I’m 57 years old and I’ve been rapping since age 13. I’m a well-known underground emcee in Los Angeles, as I’m from the “Project Blowed” and “Good Life” open mic venues. In the 1997 “Rap Olympics” I won one-round-out-of-two in a rap battle against Eminem. Although we split rounds he was declared the winner (go figure).

I’m also the founder and host of “The Rappers Over Thirty Podcast” (R.O.T). I started the podcast to support, network, and help build the fanbase for rappers over thirty. I believe the “Rap is a young man’s game” philosophy is a conspiracy that falls in line with the "Willie Lynch Letters”. The (R.O.T) podcast is open for healthy discussions with those who agree or disagree with “Rap is a young man’s game”. - Imp The Great
