"The Corner" is a boxing, mixed martial arts and pro wrestling podcast from a Hip Hop generation's perspective. Hosted by two established journalists -- Andreas Hale (BET, MTV, Billboard, GRAMMY, Ring Magazine, Sherdog, HipHopDX, Jay Z's Life+Times) and Kel Dansby (Black Sports Online) -- "The Corner" offers a refreshing and oftentimes humorous take on the combat sports world that combines the knowledge of a die hard pundit while keeping things accessible as they bridge the gap between the hip hop community and these sports.
