On the 12th episode of People’s Party, Talib Kweli and Jasmin Leigh chop it up with comedian, actor, and personal friend Godfrey. They discuss the similarities of what it is to be a rapper versus a comedian. Godfrey talks about valuable lessons learned from Jerry Seinfeld and studying under Bernie Mac when he was getting started in Chicago. They go into Instagram comics possibly being the mumble rappers of comedy, and we get to hear some of his favorite impressions.
The convo gets especially hilarious as he recounts moments working with Snoop Dogg as his role of co-pilot in the movie “Soul Plane.” Other topics include A.D.O.S., Talib’s beliefs on why People’s Party is such an important platform, ASAP Rocky getting released, Robert Downey Jr. playing a black man in “Tropic Thunder,” women of color in the comedy world not getting enough recognition, and much more.
