DJ Vlad & Lord Jamar


Manning his position as 1/4 of the Classic Hip Hop Group Brand Nubian, Lord Jamar has garnered a reputation for no filter speak on the mic outside of the confrontational rhyme talk he is renowned for. A cultural critic at large, Lord Jamar is waxing viral for his interviews that lend a much-needed insight seldom heard in the mainstream discourse. A proud member of the 5% Nation, Lord Jamar imposes a narrative on contemporary matters, and those with the stomach to listen will in no doubt take away a fresh perspective on culture and trending topics.Today Hip Hop is a globally consumed and generated culture fast becoming a teachable curriculum.

As academia seeks to fit Hip Hop Culture into a Wiki-Like Grid, the emergence of Lord Jamar and his will to stand in the gap between institution politics and the voice of the originators is much needed to put it mildly. Currently growing in popularity through his frequent appearances and commentaries on VLAD TV, Lord Jamar has patented a stoic disposition while being tossed hot-button questions, steady delivering even toned witty responses while keeping his B-Boy Swag intact. THE GODCAST, part of a number of media offerings slated for release under the Yanadameen Brand, is a forum in which Lord Jamar can curate the direction and tone of the commentaries/engagement between his guests.

In 2018 Lord Jamar ventured into the lecture circuit touching down in the throes of academia with his lecture series, and workshops, guaranteed to blindside those that feel they have the compete Hip Hop Story. Included in these workshops will be oral presentations, Q and A’s, and live programming demonstrations. To all those that fancy themselves guardians or shapers of all deemed canonical, DUCK! Yanadameen respectfully wishes to contest the flimsy gospels, and add shape to the philosophical mess…
