On this special episode of Uncommon Radio Nasa sits down for a one on one interview with Yesh aka Yeshua DaPoed.  The episode recaps Yesh's career from the recording process of Siah & Yeshua's classic "Visualz EP" on Fondle Em Records all the way up to Yesh's current projects.  In between they talk about the 90's NYC Indie Scene, the legendary Braggin Writes battles, what happened to Siah, Yesh's solo career, travelling to Europe and the West Coast, Yesh's outlook on music today and much more.  The episode ends with a breakdown of exactly how the classic "A Day Like Any Other" was created.  The run time is 2 full hours and we played lots of music as well including rarely heard tracks from the 90's and a brand new track from Yesh, produced by Soze, that's never been heard before and still not even fully mixed.  Here's a tracklist of what we played during the episode:
