Politickin' With Eddie
Episode 106: Hieroglyphics
Show Notes

On this episode, we sit down with Domino and A-Plus of the WORLD FAMOUS, LEGENDARY Hieroglyphics crew. We start with gentrification in the Bay Area/northern California and Denver and brush on the possible inevitability of gentrification basically everywhere and talk their unique history of activism. Of course, we discuss their extremely pioneering (way back in 1995!) and innovative use of the internet to successfully further their exposure and create a closer connection with fans. The discussion moves on to the current streaming era and the differences between coming up when they were in the 90’s and nowadays. Wisdom is offered to younger artists wishing to breakout. Then, of course we talk politics. We talk the 2020 candidates. Some of them get some very critical looks haha. We also talk the societal issues that they are particularly concerned about. Finally, we hit some unlikely sonic influences for Domino, California marijuana vs Colorado weed, OJ Simpson and how he may factor into poor romantic decisions for Eddie.
