In a candid and revealing interview, Love and Hip-Hop creator Mona Scott-Young sits down with TheCombatJackShow.com America’s top rated hip-hop podcast, to discuss her storied career as well as her recent transformation into a reality show mogul.
The interview also features Scott-Young’s most extensive comments to date on the passing of her former Violator Management partner and friend Chris Lighty. “There was the man that everybody knew in the boardroom, in the office and then there was my friend. My partner. The guy that I remember sitting in that apartment in the Bronx and we conceptualized how we were going to take over the world.”
I know I say this every week but this is one of the best interviews we’ve ever done, as we welcome Mona Scott Young, the creator and producer of such reality TV classics as Love & Hip-Hop. Not only does Mona Scott speak on the reality television industry, she also speaks on the life and death of Chris Lighty and how it felt to lose a personal friend, plus we get into her past as well as her present as one of the most influential people in media today. Pay attention, Mrs. Scott Young has a history and a Blake Griffin bright future in this industry.
Props to the Combat Jack Show.

Star and Buc Wild. Couldn’t control these cats, even with Dallas Penn on deck. In a rare interview, Star shared his past, how he was an actual street pimp in New York City in the early 1980′s, how he went to war with a handgun against a Dominican chick armed with and uzi and got sprayed up, his cocaine and mescaline fueled days, how he pimped MTV, Hot 97 and Power 105, why he has no issue with Big Tigger, how he’s never been impressed with Howard Stern, his love for DJ Vlad, what his hate is really about, how he doesn’t know who the fuck Just Blaze is, how someone who doesn’t fux with Hip Hop became a Hip Hop icon and more. This was too much. Dig in my cousin.
One of the greatest of all times meets up with the Newmaniti crew in this incredible interview. No music mixes this week, just this interview that does everything it says it does in the box above. Press play broham.
Get ready for Combat.

Some say hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. On his second single from ‘Candy Cigarettes’, Brian Ennals tackles this myth by switching focal points in the relationship. “When You Wake Up” is a testimony of the male ego coping with heartbreak. Pain, anger, and resentment commandeer Brian’s emotions over soulful cries produced by M-Lito. The outcome? A melodramatic reflection of a hurt man with an empty heart.
Brian Ennals returns with this offering on the perils and trials that we all go through in a relationship. When You Wake Up examines relationships from all sides with Ennals using a much more energetic flow then was seen on his first single Newport Music. This actually dropped yesterday but seeing as most of us are dealing with the after effects of Valentines Day I figure now is the best time for this joint right here.

This is #RapHistoryMonth b. #Newmanati.

Due to popular demand (and a last minute cancellation by Brooklyn’s own Joey BadA$$ and Dyme-A-Duzin) there were no special guests on this week’s show—but we did get to have the Cheat Code Just Blaze call in to talk about his current smash hit “Higher” with Baauer, Dallas Penn recapped his LoEnd Theory event, we got to interview two new potential interns and delivered a hilarious prank call to Premium Pete’s aunt, in which the cable company encourages her to start watching BET. Plus, DJ Benhameen continues to kill with his mixes. It don’t ever stop. #Newmanati!
