In this super Black episode of The Night Drive (TND), Nobi De Lon and Embassy talk “Trigger Warning,” Killer Mike’s provocative new Netflix series. Intrigued by Killer Mike’s “live Blacker challenge” they scout the world to find the Blackest deck of cards ever with creator, Khia Jackson

De Lon and Embassy do not hold back in unpacking Killer Mike’s “live Blacker challenge,” a social experiment to see if he could live off of only Black-owned and produced goods and services for 72 hours. Their inquiry leads to their own quest to “live black.”

In this podcast, they also chop it up with respected graphic designer, Khia Jackson. The feisty founder of the 1998 Deck, playing cards created for Hip Hop lovers, Jackson shares how she manages a burgeoning entrepreneurial career, all while holding down a 9-to-5 in which she boasts branding projects for Beyonce, Michelle Obama and many more of the biggest names in the game.
