043: Awon

This week I sit down with the other half of Don't Sleep Records co-founder, Awon. There is a lot of confusion around what it means exactly to be a true independent artist. So we take a deep dive into the logistic in running a grassroots label, the ins and outs of business, and the many things that can affect it. We also talk about growing up on the East Coast, from tales of incarceration to discussions around the prison industrial complex and how it effected the black first-generation wealth builders. We also touch upon hip-hop sampling jazz, keeping your circle nice and small, and the music industry in an age of digital distribution.
