EP 012 with Michael Cofey

In this episode, we have a conversation with Alaskan rapper Michael Cofey, aka Starbuks. We talk about what it was like growing up and selling crack in Fairbanks, Alaska—the psychological impact, what he learned from it and how it shaped him as an adult—how the FEDS once took a hard drive of his music, how America's perception of white and black gun ownership is skewed, and what it's like being a father and raising young, black men in today's America.

Exclusive first listen, "What's In Your Head"  featuring Tayy Tarantino off Starbuks' upcoming album Black Polar Bear.
