Jay Smooth is a hip-hop commentator/writer/radio host/public speaker and youtuber, who launched New York’s longest-running hip-hop radio show, The Underground Railroad, way back in 1991. He also helped pioneer hip-hop’s “blog era” here at starting in 2002, and since 2007 has been best known for his commentary on music, politics and culture in the Ill Doctrine video series.

Jay has done a bunch of other things as well and probably won’t remember them all right now, but a couple of cool ones are the Crash Course: Media Literacy series, and most recently the Think Twice: Michael Jackson podcast, recently named by the New Yorker as best podcast of 2023. Jay is not sure why he is writing in third person.
