Hailing from humble beginnings, he nurtured his dreams of working in media straight out of high school at 17 years old. Colb landed and internship with Hip Hop pioneer Lady B at a Philly radio station, and took over her spot on the air when she departed just five years later. What he didn’t realize at the time was that this era was the start of an explosive new genre on the rise! He was able to meet many hip hop legends early in their careers—including our very own Da Brat.
Colby had the opportunity to interview artists such as Notorious B.I.G., Nas, and, so many more. He says that his most memorable was a interviewing Jay-Z before the success of ‘Reasonable Doubt’.
