The Vibe Returns

The Vibe Episode 30A

Created by journalism student Nydja Hood, The Vibe is Temple University’s first hip-hop culture and music television show, providing a platform for artists at Temple and beyond. On The Vibe, students discuss what is trending in popular culture and feature rappers, poets, singers, and more.

On this special episode of The Vibe, hosts Jocelyn Hockaday, Bruce Claxton, and Lauren Jackson dig deep and explore how every song, every lyric, and every artist has a story. They attend Temple University’s Black Student Union’s Open Mic Night, where Black Artists from all backgrounds showcase their talent. The event features a variety of performances by Cal Nubian, Antony Dean, Joshua Peeler, and Donovan Fields. Later, the hosts provide a “Hip-Hop History Rundown” and give valuable insights into the genre’s evolution. Correspondent Lauren Jackson also interviews singer-songwriter Nahsir Griffen, who performs his latest single, “Runaway.” From beginning to end, this jam-packed episode is full of pure vibes.
