Atlanta’s Hip-Hop Stories Set To Be Told As Music Exec Jerry Clark Relaunches His Podcast.


Jerry Clark, the acclaimed music executive, announced last August that he had teamed up with iHeartPodcasts to relaunch his Storytime with Legendary Jerry series. Listeners will soon hear what that collaboration has produced, as the podcast makes its return Jan. 31. The new season will focus on southern hip-hop and rap, with Atlanta at the heart of the story.


Clark will interview music industry icons and executives on the podcast. The debut episode, featuring Atlanta-born rapper and producer Pastor Troy, will set the tone for the podcast as Troy and Clark reminisce on his "No Mo Play in G.A." performance at the “Hot 107.9” WHTA Atlanta’s “Birthday Bash” at the Lakewood Amphitheatre where headliner Master P said "he wasn't going on after Troy" and took him off the show. Atlanta legends, Goodie Mob still let Pastor Troy join them on stage, creating a viral moment before viral moments were even a thing. The two go on to discuss the early stages of his career, signing to Universal Records, and Atlanta's current rap scene. Future guests include T.I., Jeezy, Jermaine Dupri, and Killer Mike, among others.


“Storytime with Legendary Jerry is an ode to the South, and all of its accomplishments,” Clark says. “Southern rap has the game on lock for years, and I played a role this whole time and we have something to say. And now I’m telling you legendary stories of how we did it,” he says in the show’s trailer.


New episodes of Storytime with Legendary Jerry will be released on Wednesdays.
