The 2000s have seen the rise of user-generated content. As these years mature into adulthood, the podcast is becoming a favorite outlet. The biggest thing needed for podcasts to succeed is a “niche” and personality. Seattle’s next biggest hip-hop and music podcast, Mack and Nelly, clearly have both identified.
“For the culture” is a common phrase thrown around to justify one’s motives for their hustle. Mack and Nelly are truly riding for the culture. Showcasing local music and providing an outlet for thoughts, voices, and music that has limited outlets in the region. It’s no secret traditional radio has failed our region’s hip-hop culture, but outlets like Mack and Nelly are proving that people still care.
The 420 friendly podcast is filled with thoughts, opinions, new music, and all around fuckery. Michael Mack has made a name in Seattle as an avid hip-hop aficionado, supporter, and all around social media clown (for real this dude cuts up too much). I know less about Nelly but what I’ve seen on various timeline’s is a strong-willed woman who is not afraid to speak her mind and gives 0 fucks who is offended.
The old school Kube 93 is no longer here, but Mack and Nelly are working to fill that void.
