Corey Jacobs is living proof that systemic racism is real and our justice system is broken. Facing 16 life sentences as a first-time non violent drug offender, Jacobs stood solid in the prison system for 18 years without a possibility of freedom. In 2016, Jacobs was granted clemency from President Barack Obama and set free. Now a free man, senior advisor to the legendary Sean "Puffy" Combs, and co-founder of the Buried Alive Project, Jacobs is showing the world a different side of what life after facing life looks like. On this episode of "Say Less" with Kaz and Lowkey, Jacobs explains why the justice system in America doesn't necessarily help rehabilitate prisoners once they are set free and how the systems set in place by our government make it extremely easy to get sent right back into prison. Jacobs also speaks at length about his life-long friendship with Diddy and why he feels that he is Hip-Hop's Michael Jackson. Jacobs also details how the Buried Alive Project has helped free 53 people from incarceration, his friendship with Meek Mill and how both of their fights for restructuring the criminal justice system are similar yet different, who Puffy would bring smoke to in a Verzuz battle, and much more.

Patrick Mahomes Is A $500 Million Bargain

July 8, 2020

On today's episode of "Say Less," Kaz goes it alone and talks at length about Patrick Mahomes' record breaking contract extension which has the potential to be worth over a half a billion dollars. I look back at some of the biggest sports contracts ever signed and if they lived up to the hype, why the economics of the deal may favor the Kansas City Chiefs in the long term, and what this means for guys like Lamar Jackson, Dak Prescott and DeShaun Watson.

Kaz also speaks about the anxiousness between NBA players to restart the season and the many safety issues that they present, Colin Kaepernick's first-look deal with the Walt Disney Company and what it means to control your narrative ten years after LeBron James' controversial ESPN special, "The Decision." Kaz also reveals why he believes Sasha Banks is on a career-run and has the opportunity to break through the mainstream more than Becky Lynch did a year before her and much like Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.
