Jeremiah Dirt: Hip-Hop, Homelessness, and Hot Chocolate

Greetings wonderful people!! We hope you all have been well. We are extremely excited to bring you this episode with the one and only Jeremiah Dirt, the founding father of the Shadow of the Locust rap collective.

"Definitely never got into beer, I always thought it tasted like pee pee."

We start off discussing beverages as usual and then get into music and his early days experiencing homelessness as a kid and teenager, how the Rasta community in San Diego cared for him during these times, and how he found a love for the Scriptures and reggae music. This also leads us to discussing dreadlocks and the meaning behind them.

"You have an enemy and it's not God."

We also get into how his faith in God sustained him through difficult life experiences: homelessness, abuse, divorce.

"God fixes things."

We move into music discussing his 20 plus year catalog and you get to hear an impromptu debate on who the best/favorite member of the Wu-Tang Clan is! 

Thanks for listening and as always be sure to share with your family, friends, and even enemies!
