Po Politickin Artist Spotlight: Re-Surch [Podcast]
In this episode of Po Politickin, we are joined by Re-Surch. Re-Surch’s upbringing in the bleak Dorchester borough of Boston, Massachusetts, where hope is limited and violence and drugs are plentiful, shaped him from a very early age. He was simultaneously taking part in a program which bused inner city black children to predominantly white, Republican, suburban schools surrounding Boston. The playful, comedic persona that Re-Surch embodies on the track ‘Raised in the Ghetto, Went to School in the Burbs,’ mimics the paradoxical theme of being brought up in indigent surroundings in Dorchester while going to school with privileged white children in the suburbs. One experience Re-Surch details on the album is the life changing opportunity of interning for the Howard Stern Show where he became fondly known as ‘John the Black Intern,’ and where he decided to completely focus on achieving his dreams in the entertainment industry.
