The Str8OutDaDen Podcast: Throwback Edition: A Conversation With J.I.D (2013)

Thanks for checking out another episode of The Str8OutDaDen Podcast. News broke earlier this week that J.I.D signed with J. Cole's Dreamville Records. That got my brain moving and thought it would be a good idea to take you back to a conversation we had with the Spillage Village emcee back in 2013. Oh did Str8OutDaDen mentioned they got some bars from him too?  So you know the drill...sit back...Relax and Listen!

The PLAYlist feat. Glenn Lewis - Chasing Goosebumps

World-renowned DJ and Grammy Award-winning producer DJ Jazzy Jeff invited a collective of musicians, singers and songwriters to his home for a music session with an extraordinary idea in mind: Create, record and release the most incredible music possible in seven days. The artists were given full creative freedom, with one condition. Give listeners goosebumps.

Chasing Goosebumps is musically as diverse as the artists who brought it to life, The PLAYlist. More than a supergroup, The PLAYlist is a movement that promotes authenticity in music and empowers artists to remain true to their craft. For The PLAYlist, Chasing Goosebumps is reassurance that real, meaningful music is not a lost art. Chasing Goosebumps is not the end of an era. It’s just the beginning.
