MC/Vocalist/producer Jane Handcock can do pretty much whatever she wants when it comes to Soul music. On the Mani Draper produced IONLIKEDAT she decided to turn the tempo up and make folks move something with a dance vibe. Never one to shy away from her MC skills, Jane has a way of weaving in and out of R&B vocals to rap vocals seamlessly. The Grand Nationxl snow ball is still catching momentum.
"I wish more people knew about her. Keep grindin Jane…" ---Ryan James.

I was introduced to Jahi through my Son's African American Male Achievement class that Jahi instructed and taught at the local elementary school. Through the course of the class my Son's interest in Black History as well as Hip Hop history peaked. After learning of Jahi's work as community builder/MC we connected and I was introduced to Chuck D's Rapstation platform. Hardknock Radio: Davey D speaks with the long time activist/artist Jahi about his two new books The Microphone JourneyMan, Influences, Messages and Notes from the Stage.. and The Intersection Between Hip Hop Culture and Education.. We talk to him about his experiences as being a member of Public Enemy and his Hip Hop activism..
