“Is New York City in love me?” These days Combat Jack finds himself pondering this very question.

As the former Editor in Chief of The Source and now as the host of The Combat Jack Show and Founding partner of the Loudspeakers Podcast Network, Jack has become an industry honcho through the pursuit of his creative endeavors.

In “The Art of Combat,” episode 3 of the Dinner Land Network’s budding series Clever In The City; he sits down with Cleverly Chloé to discuss his upbringing, whether he believes you can find a balance between love and creativity, which Sex and the City character he relates to most, his love for the Big Apple, and more.

On Creativity vs Love:

“I think both because if you’re creating then there is love. If you’re fortunate enough to be in that pocket in New York City [because] New York City doesn’t stimulate creativity and love as much as it did before. It stimulates capitalism.”

On which Sex and the City character he would date: 

“Carrie because Carrie was I think out of all of them in the cast she was the most down to earth out of all of the characters on Sex and the City. I think all of the other characters were like caricatures, but I felt when I watched that show like Carrie spoke to me the most. It doesn’t help that she was the star of the show, but she spoke to me the most. I understood her world more than I did the others.”

New Music: Producer of Kanye West’s “All Day,” Velous Leaks New Single “Sex And The City”

velous-sex-and-the-city

Artist/producer Velous has been a busy man within the 18 months. From signing with French Montana’s Coke Boys imprint via Swanky Music Group, appearing on DJ Spinking’s “Adult Swim” alongside Tyga & Jeremih, producing Chinx’s “Dope House,” as well as appearing on Fabolous’ standout record “Gone For The Winter,” the Kingston, NY native has definitely left his footprint on the music scene. Moreover, early this year, the youngster was further thrusted into the spotlight after producing Kanye West’s much talked about single “All Day.”

Since then, Velous has been tucked away in the studio putting the finishing touches on his forthcoming debut project The Disco. With the project produced entirely by Velous, it will also feature his brand new record “Sex And The City.” The track was first played by Boi-1da on Drake’s OVO Sound Radio last weekend, prompting Velous to leak the record himself at the behest of listeners. The full CDQ version will be available on “The Disco,” which is slated for release soon.
