The Cut Podcast follows up it’s debut (featuring Quake Matthews) with a dope discussion with the legendary Mr. Cheeks of South Jamaica, Queens hip-hop squad, Lost Boyz.
It’s clear hosts Uncle Catfish and DJ IV were looking to make an immediate impression with this new show and so far it’s been nothing short of amazing. Entertaining and informative.
“The Cut is updated weekly and each show will feature special guests discussing music, culture and lifestyle. Most of all, they’ll be sharing stories you’ve never heard before straight out of your favourite East Coast destination… Halifax, Nova Scotia.”

About Mr. Cheeks
Before establishing himself as a solo artist in the early 2000s, Mr. Cheeks made a name for himself as a member of the Lost Boyz in the mid- to late ’90s. Cheeks and the other members of the Lost Boyz practiced a sincere, literate, non-sensational style of New York hip-hop. As a result, they never attained substantial commercial success, yet garnered substantial critical acclaim and were underground favorites. But when Freaky Tah met an unfortunate demise, the Lost Boyz soon broke ranks and remained quiet. Cheeks resurfaced in late 2001, though, and he came with a more mature outlook on life that informed his rhymes with a greater sense of knowledge and truth than before. His debut solo album, John P. Kelly, featured the massive hit single “Lights, Camera, Action!” as well as production by a broad roster of producers including Stephen Marley, Bink!, and Easy Mo Bee.
In 2010, Lost Boyz reunited, and released a single called “Haaay.” His most recent activities as a solo musician have included collaborations with R&B singer Ryan Michael, Stephen Marley, and Producer 9th Wonder.
