This is my first radio interview. I was incredibly comfortable because one of the interviewers was Ali Shaheed Muhammad of A Tribe Called Quest, whom I've known for almost 30 years. Frannie Kelly, his partner, is a recent but good friend and supporter. It was fantastic to sit down and talk to Shaheed heart to heart about a number of issues that touched us both, particularly the loss of our dear friend and his former manager, Chris Lighty, god rest his soul.
