John Legend Talks Frank Ocean and Meeting Kanye West on The Champs Podcast
On last week’s episode The Champs podcast with Neal Brennan (co-creator of The Chappelle’s Show), Moshe Kasher and DJ Douggpound, the crew sat down with Grammy award winner John Legend. They talked about John’s start as a singer, meeting Kanye West and establishing their relationship, getting his record deal. They also discuss how John and Will.i.am created “Ordinary People” originally as just a hook for a Black Eyed Peas song (I know…), having Frank Ocean and Stevie Wonder over for his 4th of July BBQ and Frank’s at-the-time recent coming out letter. This is definitely one of their better, more entertaining episodes, and it’s just over an hour. If you have time, also check out the episode with Pras. They’ve also had Questlove, Blake Griffin, Sasha Grey, Jose Canseco, and plenty of comedians as guests on the show.
