    Gov Jindal gitty at 16; "No Chance Trump" strong 2nd in NH poll; and more...

    in Politics Conservative

    Program time 8AM-10AM EST


    I admit I had my doubts if he would do it, but he did. Gov Bobby Jindal made it official he is a candidate for President of the United States of America. Today we will take a look at the man and his background. Also on tap, Donald Trump appears to be gaining some traction. Well, at least in New Hampshire. Is there really a chance the traction is for real? I would not be surprised. 


    Rush Limbaugh joins me in believing the Stars and Stripes, Old Glory, the Star Spangled Banner will be next target...oops, just saw the update, overnight the battle has started!

    Hasan Salaam + Jay Z, Russell Simmons & Gov. Cuomo + NY rap on top

    in Music

     New York City has been very much part of the public consciousness in recents days, and as hip hop is concerned, we're still the center of the music, culture and politics. This was evident this week as news broke that Jay Z and Russell Simmons both spoke with Governor Cuomo about "reforming the justice system."


    Whether or not this was just shrewed PR positioning or not remains to be seen. We'll discuss the meetings and ask the question, "Are Jay Z or Russell Simmons capable representatives of hip hop? Can they make a difference?"


    Of course, Jay and Russell weren't the only ones making noise in regards to the protests. Nas and J. Cole participated, and of course, the lesser known, but no less important hip hop-oriented organiztations, artists and 'heads' continue to be out in force.


    Speaking of which, we'll hear from MC/activist and more, Hasan Salaam, fresh from his recent album release and amazing interview with our host Manny Faces, on his sister podcast, The Manny Faces Show. He'll give an update on his album, the memorial for affiliate J Arch, and Hasan's upcoming event, celebrating his more "erotic" side activities. 


    Speaking of J. Cole, along with DJ Premier/Royce the 5' 9" project and Ghostface Killah's new album, a lot of veteran NY artists are bringing great material to the table. While the new jacks including the highly anticipated release from Joey Bada$$ are due out soon, we have to sit back and say, "Damn, New York and NY-influenced hip hop is pretty damn strong right now..."


    As we always said it would be.


    All this, plus event reviews and previews, and YOUR CALLS.


    Brought to you by SUPERFLY: My Untold Story of Hip-Hop. A perfect gift for the hip hop head!

    "Help4Men Radio Special " New Orleans Government Exposed

    in Politics

    The ATC comminisioner appointed has at least three known pending racial discrimination lawsuits and this commissioner Troy Hebert has denied a U.S. Major with 24 years of service and a disable Black female veteran a liquor license without reason, without any application errors, without any wrong doings after 22 unannounced inspections. Hebert serves at the pleasure of the businesses in the French Quarters, yet, you have allowed the racially motivated person to continue his deception.



    Less than 2% black business owners in the French Quarters
    50% of young African Americans unemployed
    Black Zip codes…. 70117, 70118, 70122, 70126, 70127, 70128 no help after Katrina
    12 Billion was give after hurricane Rita
    108 Billion was given after hurricane Katrina
    Within 32 years there was ONLY 2 Black Mayors… 1st 1978 and the other was in 2010 and his now in prison.
    For every $1000 Whites make in New Orleans. Blacks ONLY make $35.00
    Why is the state allowing an alleged racist (recently reported to have 3 open federal discrimination lawsuits pending) to remain as the head of one of the top revenue generating offices of the state of Louisiana? It's time to call Gov Bobby Jindal and tell him to put ATC Commissioner, Troy Hebert, on the bench. Bring him in and off the field until after these legal cases are tried...
