Jacked - Hosted by Taraji P. Henson. Have you ever had a dream? Something you wanted so bad you just couldn’t let it go? For a group of kids in Harlem in the Eighties, their dreams would change pop music forever. Teddy Riley, Timmy Gatling, and Aaron Hall form a group called Guy that would fuse hip-hop and R&B and launch a new sound. By the early Nineties, the New Jack Sound dominated the pop music charts: Bell Biv Devoe, Bobby Brown, Boyz II Men, and many more. But the rise of the New Jack sound would come at a cost, and not everyone would make it to the top. From Wondery and Universal Music Group, Jacked is a story of friendship, gangsters, double-crosses, and big dreams. Listen at wondery.fm/jacked_SOG.

I can't put into words how many times I captured (listened) the podcast; I not only shared it with my Facebook community... I emailed it to key friends, sent it through Messenger and about to share it with my LinkedIn network I also researched Andrew Huberman PHD, visited his link from within this podcast and watched his Mindvally talk (Biohacking your Brain's Potential). More than "ANYTHING" I've research, Andrew answered... and in a way that it made direct sense "to me"! Lewis, another Harbinger of Light moment, you absolutely "did it" with this podcast! Namaskar + One Love Michael Leslie circlesquareandtriangles.com

6 days ago, I wrote this comment on youtube for the interview of Ravi Patel: "Is it possible Lewis invites Paris Hilton as an entrepreneur? I mean since she has let go of her baby persona, she's shown a new side to her that is interesting to get to know." and now here she is. So nice that she was on Lewis' guest list already😍👌
