Philadelphia, Pennsylvania veteran emcee Jakk Frost spoke with HipHopDX recently in the rapper’s West Philly studio. A respected pillar of the city’s Hip Hop community, the leader of the “Beards” spoke to DX about his development in the 1990s, and crossing paths with another esteemed lyricist in Atlanta: Canibus. Although Jakk was cautious to state who won, the two engaged in a competition that may still have spectators talking.
