The Suspense is killing me!! Y'all took so long to get to a cheating music manager y'all had me convinced he was innocent until you laid the facts on down. Wow! Love the storytelling, behind the scene tidbits, narrator's voice, and suspense!!

Great story telling of the origin of #NewJackSwing. This podcast takes me back to the mid 80s early 90s, and let me tell you I am enjoying it!

I cannot get enough of this podcast. By the time I found "Jacked", five episodes were available. I binged all five consecutively. I was amazed how Guy was formed and felt terrible for Timmy being kicked out. I could not hold my excitement to find out Teddy Riley had been involved with some of my favorite music memories of my childhood like Doug E. Fresh, Kool Moe D, and Keith Sweat. I would recommend this to anybody who was a child of the New Jack Era.
