About Miss Info


In the season finale of Food Grails, Miss Info and First We Feast head down to Atlanta to explore the city’s love for lemon pepper wings. From Magic City to J.R. Crickets, Miss Info learns about the origin of lemon pepper wings, and how rap music, strip clubs and, more recently, Atlanta has turned the finger-lickin’ dish into a local delicacy. Donald Glover, Waka Flocka Flame and Wing Stop CEO Rick Ross explain what makes lemon pepper wings so great, while writer and ATL native Rembert Browne hosts a backyard taste test to decide who has the best lemon pepper wings in town.

Hey guys, I know that Ang and me starting this In Real Life podcast on TIDAL is like opening up an AOL account or Myspace page in 2017…but honestly, we have such a good time talking shxt with each other about life, love, family drama, and all the crazy people we have no time for at this stage of our lives…that we just wanted an excuse to do it every other week.

Angie always has such a refreshingly honest straightforward no-nonsense way of approaching every challenge, I lean on that all the time and now I can share that with you guys. I don’t know what she gets from me, but I’m honored that she asks me for advice too all the time. So we’re hoping to share more of ourselves, interact with listeners and friends, and talk about things that matter but all in the context of two women who have devoted their lives to documenting hip hop.

This episode is basically just a warm up. Thank you to anyone who checks it out and subscribes for more.

In episode four of First We Feast‘s Food Grails, Miss Info heads down to New Orleans to explore the unique Vietnamese po’ boy movement. Local legend Curren$y explains the origins of the po’ boy while farmer Khai Nguyren and Banh Mi Boys chef Peter Nguyen shed insight on how the line between the local po’ boy and the Vietnamese bánh mì have become blurred since the Vietnam war. Through something as simple as a sandwich, two communities have realized they have more in common than you might think.

We’re back with another episode of First We Feast and Miss Info’s Food Grails series! This time, they hit up our nation’s capital, Washington D.C., on a quest to get to the bottom of the city’s “Mumbo Sauce” mystery. Popularized in hood Chinese restaurants, the sweet and tangy sauce has become the trade mark of fried chicken spots in the DMV area.

After exploring the African-American taco movement in L.A. in the season premiere, Miss Info returns to NYC to dig into the Jamaican beef patty in episode two of First We Feast‘s Food Grails. Chopping it up with the likes of DJ Clark Kent, Upscale Vandal and Judnick Mayard, Miss Info investigates exactly why the beef patty is such a staple throughout the Five Boroughs.

Stay tuned for episode three of Food Grails dropping on Wednesday, June 7 at 11am ET.

For the first episode of Food Grails, my new show with the good folks at First We Feast, we went out to South L.A., Compton, Watts and Leimert Park to meet the new wave of hood entrepreneurs. Many are former hustlers or gang members who are now making their own Americanized version of the Mexican food that everyone in L.A. grows up on. These guys are social media stars and favorites of the local hip-hop artists (like Jay 305 and Casey Veggies) that relate to their struggle.

Watch the season premiere above and check back for new episodes dropping every Wednesday at 11am ET.

(Gucci in Soho with my man Kristoff [Charlie Murphy’s son])

The day after Gucci Mane clipped off his house arrest anklet, he and wifey Keyshia Ka’oir flew to New York City. While there, he not only made stops at Vogue, GQ , and XXL, but he also was spotted shopping at VFiles, KITH, and the home team, Stadium Goods. Matter of fact if you check out his GuwopSnaps Snapchat account it looks like Wop shot something special at Stadium Goods with Complex.

On Thursday night, Gucci’s team held an intimate dinner party for him at Dirty French, with everyone from media editors, fashion insiders, music personalities, and bosses from Atlantic Records, Nike, Unilever, and more. Our very own Miss Info was there and talked to Gucci about his upcoming tour plans. Afterwards, everyone went to the celebrated hot spot, Up and Down.

Gucci Mane’s Homecoming Concert at the Fox Theater in Atlanta opened with his long-time producer Zaytoven, in red suede, at a white grand piano…tickling the ivories like some kind of Trap Bobby Short while Gucci rapped for the first time in years to sold-out stands filled with his most devoted.

The light melodies and the heavy rhymes were a perfect mismatch…and a reflection of Zay himself.
While in New York City to promote his new book for aspiring producers, “From A To Zay,” the 36-year-old piano-playing, church-going, family man who, according to Sonny Digital and Metro Boomin’, is the “godfather” of the trap sound, joined me on my new TuneIn streaming radio show to talk about what it’s like to be the most sober man in the room…

How he ended one of Gucci Mane’s saddest beefs with the man who started it all with him
What he has planned with his ‘Beast Mode’ partner, Future…
The difference between him and some of Atlanta’s other production stars…and more.
Zaytoven also gave me one of the most illuminating explanations of why trap music is teflon from rap elite criticism. It was a really interesting conversation and I hope you guys enjoy it.

We’re playing highlights from the Zaytoven x Miss Info interview starting at 1pm EST on my streaming show on TuneIn’s new Hip Hop Beat station…click here to listen.
