NOTE: This episode may include content that some people will find triggering.

Mack starts off the show with a surprising announcement that has been a long-time coming. The show continues with the weekly Check-In.  

“This Old Ghetto House” is still going strong and L.O. shares the latest episode in which we find out what happens when uneven walls go up and two competent Jamaican carpenters come to the rescue. Vin rants about the ongoing homeless problem in the city that seems to get worse with each passing day. In lighter news, Rick's back to work and he's ready to go.  Anxious like a kid before the first day of school but first he has to complete his son's new bedroom. Lastly, Mack shares an experience about his visit to the chiropractor.  At first, he was a non-believer, but after a few physical adjustments and a certain pillow, could he be sold on the science?

We also discuss Nas’ latest album King’s Disease, the Democratic National Convention, police brutality and HBO’s powerful and must-see documentary “Storm over Brooklyn”  that retells the story of the 1989 murder of Yusef Hawkins.

You’ll hear all of this and more on this episode of Decoding 40.
