A Sit-Down With The D.O.C., Who Shares His Thoughts On Dr. Dre, Justus and His Own Return To Music.

Welcome to Burning Bridges, a biweekly Central Track podcast wherein local commentator Rodney Blu waxes poetic on the day's most pressing issues and interviews prominent players in the arts scene, all over a guest mix from a roster of several local selectors. It's fast, it's fresh and it's polarizing. Check out past episodes here. Subscribe on iTunes here.

Y'all ready for this? On this latest installment of Burning Bridges with Rodney Blu, I bare it all, revealing my own struggles in an effort to offer some perspective to those who I know are dealing with similar symptoms of growing up. Setbacks, obstacles and deterrents befall us all — but aren't they really nothing more than pebbles in the road? That's how I feel, at least.

And I know it's how my guest on this latest episode feels, too. This time around, over a background mix provided by DJKMOR. I was honored to welcome Dallas rap legend The D.O.C. into the studio. Over the course of our talk, he reinforced my perspective on life's struggles — and, in discussing his recent return to live performance this weekend with a show at The Bomb Factory, he shared too the joys of going through redemption.

We also talk in great depth about his past, as The D.O.C. shares intricacies of his life's story with never-before-heard detail. From his original exodus from Dallas and the height of his career following some agonizing years as NWA and Dr. Dre's brute of labor to the accident that changed his stratospheric trajectory forever and his recent seeming rise from the dead, it's all covered here.

This isn't one to be missed, y'all. Tune in.
