After pioneering the podcast game eight long years ago and cementing his place in hip-hop culture, the end is unfortunately here for The Combat Jack Show. Following the tragic death of the podcast’s creator and host Reggie Ossé, aka Combat Jack, Loud Speakers Network have released the final ever episode of The Combat Jack Show.
In “The Reunion Episode,” Premium Pete, Dallas Penn, Just Blaze, A-King, Matt Raz, DJ Benhameen, Jonathan Mena and Chris Morrow get together one last time to reminisce on the show’s legacy and the life of Reggie. Special guests including Jamiliah Lemieux, Derrick “D-Dot” Angelettie and Westside Gunn also stop by (or call in) to share fond memories.
“It was closure,” Jonathan Mena, the show’s producer, tells Billboard. “It’s what he would’ve wanted.”
“Internets! This episode was in the making for a long time. While we’d preferred to have done this while our dear brother Combat Jack was still with us in the physical, you asked for it and we finally got it done…The Reunion Episode. Yes, the crew was in the building… A-King, Dallas Penn, Premium Pete, Matt Raz, DJ Benhameen, Just Blaze, Jonathan Mena and LSN Captain- Chris Morrow. So much emotions as we powered through reminiscing about the early days of the Combat Jack Show. Shout out to long time friends and supporters Jamiliah Lemieux, Derrick “D-Dot” Angelettie (who stopped by), Westside Gunn, Dart Adams and more who called in to share their fond memories and moments of Combat Jack.”
While this may serve as the final Combat Jack Show, we will always keep the legacy alive and may you all continue to #RaiseTheBar. Thank you all for your support and we ask that you keep his family and us in your thoughts and prayers. It.Does.Not.Stop….Love!
