Combat Jack

The Combat Jack Show

Reggie Ossé, known as Combat Jack first rose to prominence in the recording industry as founding partner of the small NYC law firm Ossé and Woods where his clients included such legends as Jay-Z, Damon Dash, DMX, Sean "Diddy" Combs' Hitmen production team, along with producers, songwriters and artists who shaped the "golden era" sound of the 1990s. 


After closing his practice, Ossé worked briefly as an executive at MTV, after which time he decided to change career paths and began blogging under the name “Combat Jack”. Quickly developing a following attracted to his authenticity and riveting tales from the golden age of hip-hop, Ossé was named the managing editor of The Source Magazine, where he served for a year before dedicating himself full time to The Combat Jack Show podcast and The Loudspeakers Podcast Network.

Ossé is also the author of ‘Bling: A History Hip-Hop Jewelry’ and his writing has appeared in The Source, Complex, XXL and Red Bull Music Academy's ‘The Daily Note’. As an active participant in social media, Billboard Magazine has named Ossé one of the "140 Music Writers To Follow On Twitter". Complex Magazine has named him "Top 25 Writers To Follow On Twitter". Entertainment Weekly has named The Combat Jack Show podcast one of the “12 Must Listen To Music Podcasts”. Ossé is also the on-air host of Sirius XM’s Backstory show on the Backspin station in which he interviews artists in a satellite radio show format and has been called, by Complex the "Dick Cavett"of rap because of his unique interview skills.

J. Cole, Rick Ross, Ice Cube, Lil Boosie, Wiz Khalifa, Wendy Williams, Dr. Michael Eric Dyson and a slew of influencers and players in today’s culture all agree that Ossé’s interviews are the absolute best in today’s media. With his latest project in conjunction with Spotify and Gimlet Media, “MOGUL: The Life and Death Of Chris Lighty”, Combat has once again changed the landscape and expanded the dimensions of Hip Hop podcasting.

Whether the comparison is to Charlie Rose, Howard Stern or Dick Cavett, Combat Jack has made a great impact on all media platforms and will only continue to make his presence felt on all platforms.
