Nas and Miss Info are celebrating nearly half a century of hip-hop history with a new Spotify exclusive podcast. In 2023, hip-hop will officially turn 50-years old since its inception at Kool Herc’s legendary block party at 1520 Sedgewick Avenue in the Bronx.
In celebration of the milestone, Nas and well-known media personality Minya “Miss Info” Oh, have announced their new Mass Appeal-produced podcast, The Bridge. The Spotify exclusive show will focus on the evolution of hip-hop culture over the past 50 years. The first season will launch on November 16th with special guests, Jungle, DJ Jazzy Jeff, Cordae, Ice Cube, and many more.
Nas, who is also teaching a Masterclass on storytelling in hip-hop, explained that the podcast will detail the origins of hip-hop from block parties to becoming the biggest genre in the world. "This is our opportunity to go deep and explore how hip-hop went from the microphones, turntables, and sound systems to big business and a worldwide cultural phenomenon,” Nas said in the trailer for the podcast.
"Of course, The Bridge brings our paths full circle as friends and colleagues, but the most special thing about this podcast are the conversations that listeners will get to sit in on," Miss Info told Complex. "Our guests open up to Nas and I about the way they approach life, the way they reconcile their pasts, and in many cases, the shared history between Nas and these fellow artists. We’re having a blast, and I think it shows.”
The Bridge will debut on Spotify on November 16, with new episodes weekly. Stay tuned for more on this and other hip-hop news.
