The Extraordinary Negroes are creating dope ass content

patrons

After years of collaborative endeavors with Alex, from our archaic reign on MySpace, to our most recent partnership “Across the Aisle”, I developed an urge for a creative outlet that writing alone could no longer satiate. I wanted a podcast. But in true Jay form, I didn’t want a podcast like the majority of the ones out there. I had zero desire to just interview the biggest names in the business or gossip about Kanye’s underwear. I wanted to create a platform to discuss serious issues within the Black community, such as mental health, financial literacy, masculinity, etc., yet infuse humor to make these discussions entertaining, yet equally informative.

After spitballing with Alex and pooling our resources, “The Extraordinary Negroes” was born. Which, thus far, has easily been one of the most fulfilling projects I’ve ever been involved with. Having the opportunity to dialogue with our friends and contemporaries about relevant issues, all while entertaining the masses with our unconventional approach, has allowed us to breathe new life into a medium that was beginning to feel a bit contrived and stale.

However, an endeavor of this magnitude comes with both commitments and costs. Proper recording equipment, advertisements, domain and file hosting, graphic design, etc. are all invaluable components of what makes “The Extraordinary Negroes” so unique. Our podcast means nothing without the loyalty of our fans and a platform such as Patreon provides each of you with the opportunity to continue your support. In return for your pledge, you’ll gain access to exclusive content, as well as additional perks and rewards.

In closing, Alex and I thank each of you for your continued support and look forward to continuing to bring you dope content that not only makes you laugh, but enlightens as well.
