BBP is a hip hop crew based out of Pittsburgh, PA. I recently met with founder Chaoz Da General and VinnyBlaq. Their brand new single "Like a Gentleman" is featured with this episode. We had a great conversation about how BBP formed, their musical influences, and the state of hip hop music today. They are signed to the Rize Records label, and we talked about our shared respect for Omar Sistrunk. I have been fortunate to interview many acts associated with Rize, and I was thrilled for the chance to add BBP to that list.

L*A*W is back! There is so much going on in this country with recent Grand Jury decisions, police behavior, and the downstream effects of racism. L*A*W is not shy about sharing his views on social media, but he chose not to address these topics any further on Facebook and Twitter after his initial posts. He said that he would rather talk through them on my show. I am honored to be a part of this discussion with him. Talking about these things and being educated about the past is the only way things will change. Hopefully our discussion sparks some new thoughts with you. Two live tracks are featured here as well. Follow L*A*W on Twitter at www.twitter.com/planet12law. If you reach out to L*A*W, please let him know that you enjoy his appearances on The Artist Connection Podcast!

I recently called over to Scotland to speak with musician Andy Gunn. An article about him by Donald Fraser in The Highland Times pointed me in his direction (http://www.thehighlandtimes.com/news/2014/11/20/the-andy-gunn-story/). Andy has overcome many challenges in his life. His story is inspirational on so many levels. We had a great conversation about his life, music, and his new album "Miracle of Healing". I love this record! Two tracks are featured with this episode. I highly encourage you to pick up a copy of your own and support this talented artist. We also talked about our shared respect of the blues and his travels to different parts of the US. I hope he returns here so I can catch one of his shows. Learn more at www.andygunn.net. If you contact Andy, please let him know that you heard him on the show. Enjoy!
