Welcome back Beat*Society family to Episode 39 of Beat*Society Podcast. This week Sao and Hez talk with the amazing Lady Alma.
If you guys don’t know listen and get familiar. We go on a journey following Alma’s beginnings as a child prodigy, then her experiences and successes early on with King Britt and Sylk 130, how unforeseen circumstances changed her career path and a chance viral video re-energizing her career. We had a ball talking with her and we hope you guys get as much out of this as we did.
We changed our recording process this week and had a little technical difficulty for the first few minutes, if you like skip ahead to 5:50 to bypass.

This week right off the Beat*Society live show, we invited Tall Black Guy to Little Africa Studios to talk. We got into his early influences, where Hip-Hop is going, the loss of regional identity, how most creative energy is nothing more than commercials for corporations, what it means to stay relevant and so much more. It was an an amazing weekend, ending with this great conversation.
If you already haven't do yourself a favor and check his music out! This week's podcast is scored by Tall Black Guy
