The Combat Jack Show Live ft. Special Guest Kano
The undisputed #1 Hip Hop podcast, the Combat Jack Show is coming to the UK for the first time ever! Hosted by Combat Jack (real name Reggie Ossé), he first rose to prominence in the recording industry as lawyer to the likes of Jay Z, DMX, and Puff Daddy. Then going on to birth the Combat Jack Show, the show features interviews that always turn into in-depth conversations about music, news, culture and race with some of Hip Hop’s biggest names. Guests have included: Russell Simmons, Chuck D, Damon Dash, J. Cole, RZA, Scarface, LL Cool J, D-Nice, and Ice-T.

Hosting his first live episode of the show in the UK, fans will be able to get up close and personal while Combat Jack interviews grime icon Kano about his come up, the history of grime and his new album Made in the Manor.

The interview will be recorded live and released online as an official episode of The Combat Jack Show.

Kano
Kane Brett Robinson, better known as Kano, is an English rapper known for his wit and technique on the mike. Prior to becoming known in the U.K. mainstream as a solo artist, he was a member of N.A.S.T.Y. Crew, an East London-based grime group. His first single, "Boys Love Girls," was an underground hit that served as a springboard for his solo deal with the Warner-supported 679 Recordings. The 2004 track "P's & Q's," produced by DaVinche, was his first release for the label. "Typical Me," a collaboration with Fraser T. Smith, was issued the following February, reached number 22 on the U.K. pop chart, and set up the moderately successful Home Sweet Home, an album that also involved productions from Diplo, Mike Skinner (aka the Streets), and Paul Epworth. He subsequently took the 2005 MOBO Award for Best Newcomer. Kano and Smith worked even closer together on London Town, a 2007 follow-up propelled by the number 18 U.K. pop hit "This Is the Girl," featuring Craig David. The MC went independent with the less commercial 140 Grime Street (2008) and Method to the Maadness (2010), albums that nonetheless reached the Top 50 as he sustained his profile with appearances on tracks by Chase & Status and Gorillaz. After several other collaborations and mixtapes, a deal with Parlophone enabled the release of the fifth proper Kano album, Made in the Manor, in 2016.
The Shejay
The Shejay
The SheJay started out as an MC ( under the Moniker MC 1E) at the tender age of 17, performing alongside many big names up and the UK in the 90's/2000's House & Garage scene. During this time The Shejay worked alongside the Sidewinder brand for 2 years and subsequently became known to many of the important club promotions.

The SheJay had always known how to mix from a very early age, since taking it more seriously, she has never looked back.

A career spanning over a decade has seen The SheJay play alongside some of the UK's and the worlds best known DJs such as
Steve Smooth Sutherland, DJ EZ, Seani B, DJ Scottie B, Tim Westwood, Trevor Nelson and Chris Goldfinger. To add to to that she has been the feature DJ for such notable US acts as Neyo, Lloyd, Tevin Campbell, Blackstreet, Sizzla Kalonji, Sean Kingston, M.I.M.S. and Omarion.

The time spent gigging only served to increase her hunger as The SheJay opted to try her hand at many different sides on the music industry from radio to print! A guest spot on the G Money and Charlene White show on BBC 1Xtra radio station was soon to follow where The Shejay was part of a live music review panel!

a self-professed small town girl (Milton Keynes), The SheJay used to feel it held her back from being able to really discover herself and fulfil her potential within the music industry. Now, however, The SheJay feels it has given her the ability to operate outside the confines of the congested musical capital (London) and better define her own identity.

A turning point in The SheJay's musical journey was in 2009 when she got to try her hand at music production, mentored by the seasoned North West London Hip Hop and House music producer A.C. Layne (TE1Productions). The SheJay instantly fell in love with the science of it all. She is still very much in the learners lane when it comes to production, but by all means plans to take all she has learned so far over the years and continues on building on it.

Even after all these years The SheJay has been a DJ, since 2012 especially new doors have been opened. From co-presenting the The Great Debate Radio Show on Secklow Sounds radio station (www.secklowsounds.org) to becoming the resident DJ for the Female DJ Takeover which took a collective of female artists on a 7 city national UK tour. In early 2013, The SheJay became the Official DJ for LinkUp TV as well as co-presenting their flag-ship radio show on Bang Radio 103.6FM in West London which then in turn led to her being flown to The Gambia to play the International Roots Festival.

Watching The Shejay work it's evident she has a deep love for the DJing craft and after 16+ years of dedication no one would argue against DJing and production indeed being her calling. The SheJay represents a rapidly declining breed of disc-jockey prioritising the art form above all else.
