Rewind: Jesse Paradice / "Don't Call Me Ethnic"
This episode from 2017 is one of my favorites, and it's an important episode to bring back. This week, Bearded Fruit turns over the reigns of the podcast to Cleveland-based hip hop artist Jesse Paradice. He discusses his powerful EP "Don't Call Me Ethnic." the turbulent forces that shaped his musical voice, and the urgent need for us to listen -- and listen closely -- to queer black artists and other people (and artists)of color.
