The man behind the popular “Combat Jack Show” podcast has been diagnosed with colon cancer, the show’s host announced Monday afternoon. Reggie Ossé released a statement that was posted to Twitter.
The Brooklyn native is a former hip-hop music attorney, with big name clients such as Jay Z, Roc-a-Fella, DJ Clark Kent and more. He’s also the former managing editor of legendary hip hop publication, The Source.
Combat Jack began hosting the podcast dedicated to hip-hop discussion and interviews in August 2010. In 2013, it grew to be the flagship show of a collection of podcasts called the Loud Speakers Network, which also includes “The Read,” “The Brilliant Idiots” and “Fan Bros.”
