Cap D discusses PolyMath, police brutality and his dual life of MC and lawyer

For more than a decade Cap D has been a pioneer in Hip Hop both as a solo artist and as a member of the legendary All Natural crew. His latest release PolyMath has received critical acclaim for production and lyrical content, and has been named the #1 Top Indie Album of 2010 by the Chicago Tribune.

Cap D talks to Jesse Menendez on Vocalo's MusicVox about managing being an MC and a lawyer, his song Chicago 5/0 where he addresses police brutality (specifically the Jon Burge case), and reveals his new musical project that has nothing to do with Hip Hop!
