Hello internets!

I'm Jay Smooth, and back in 1991 when "Jay Smooth" was still a hip-hop name I founded New York's longest-running hip-hop radio show, WBAI's Underground Railroad. Since then I've been blessed with a lifelong career representing the music and culture I love, And for the last ten years my passion project has been the Ill Doctrine video blog, where I use the voice hip-hop gave me to speak on social justice, politics, culture, and creativity.

After some time away working through a personal loss, I'm returning to this work just as we all come to grips with our new political reality, and I'm committed to using my voice in every way I can to support resistance, rebuilding and reinvisioning.

With your help I hope to work full time producing videos, audio and written commentary, and expand into sharing other voices and digging deeper with long-form projects. And I believe now more an ever we need a truly independent platform where we can say whatever needs saying, ask whatever needs asking, and clown whatever needs clowning.

I'm so grateful for your support over the years, and can't wait to make more good things for you.
-Jay
