Insightful, funny and raw. That just about sums up Episode #211 (like the malt liquor), of Drinking Partners Podcast, who sits down with my boy Thomas Agnew and his business partner DS Kinsel of the multipurpose creative space Boom Concepts in Pittsburgh, PA.
The guys cover everything from music, culture, influence, and more. The laughs were endless and the knowledge and experiences shared were very in-depth. It’s great to see the evolution of Thomas’ journey in entrepreneurship in the Steel city.
If you ever attended an event at Shadow Lounge with JENESIS Magazine then you’ll understand why this new fundraiser for Boom Concepts is so important.

As one of the most exciting acts to emerge from the Pittsburgh rap scene, Mars Jackson, sees himself as an artist who is trying to share his life through his music.Never one to rush projects, “HypeChill” (4th mixtape) is long overdue but shows obvious progression from the Pittsburgh MC. With features from Spank Lee, S.BOO, BADBOXES and Hii Class Society’s very own Grits Capone “HypeChill” is sure to be a classic to new and old Mars Jackson fans. Influenced by life’s challenges, tracks like “More Promises” and radio friendly “Sacrifice” depicts a mature take on life’s occurrences . Whereas, “I.J.S” and “We heard that sh*t” are singles to turn any party/session up.
