I like it because it has people reminiscing and talking about a time, place, and person who has impacted music forever.

I really hope that this rises to the top of the iTunes charts just so that people who may not have heard about it (or who didn't have access to Spotify) can catch it. It's great storytelling and top-notch interviewing by (in my opinion) the best podcaster in Hip Hop (Reggie Ossé, aka Combat Jack). Even if you don't care much about Hip Hop, this is a story about a complex and talented human being that will hit you in your heart. The story of Chris is told in all its glory and tragedy, and Combat never shies away from confronting some of the toughest aspects of the man's life (just listen to the heartbreak in Combat's voice on Episode 4 when having to process and communicate some pretty difficult things about Chris' life). It's also an example of great editing and tight production (without ever sounding corny--because that can be a thing with overproduced podcasts). And when you're done with the last episode, wait until after the credits for a wonderful story from Chris' daughter.
