The Urban X Podcast is The #1 Father and son Podcast created to address the critical need for positive male images and voices in social media. This multi-faceted platform, which includes a Youtube channel, podcast, and blog, serves as the perfect stage for a father and son duo to dialog about the many issues faced in our community, including economics, health, politics, and of course, fatherhood.
With over 7 million views, over 51,000 subscribers, 200,000 listeners, and thousands of avid readers, Urban X is a platform poised for greatness. With the addition of our new free app, which is available for all IOS and Apple devices, and our newly launched internet TV Network, which can be seen on Apple TV, ROKU, and Amazon Firestick, we are quickly becoming one of the fastest-growing social media platforms.
New live episodes of our podcast air on Youtube every Monday and Thursday at 9 pm. On Wednesdays at 9 pm, you can catch a new episode of the HULC series, which stands for Hip-Hop Urban Life Coach, where "dad" directly answers many questions from loyal listeners regarding life's challenges.
Every Podcast episode is highlighted by a segment called "The Urban Xcellence Story of the week," where we shine a light on ordinary individuals who achieve extraordinary goals and accomplishments that would otherwise go unnoticed. No story or achievement is too small for us to celebrate. If "Black Excellence" is the destination, then Urban Xcellence is the journey! Malcom X. Bowser is the author of a brand new book called "Urban Xcellence," which focuses on 11 individuals in great detail, telling their stories of motherhood, entrepreneurs, disabilities, abuse, and so much more.
His dad, Duane Bowser aka The Black Dot is also the author of 2 books, "Hip Hop Decoded" and "Urban Culture Decoded" which deal with the urban experience from an aesthetic, artistic point of view, as well as the many challenges presented by the overall urban experience. This podcast is edgy, funny thought-provoking, and even controversial at times, and is a must-watch for those who are not afraid to speak out and speak up when it comes to the issues that matter the most, family, fatherhood, and community. And with the recent news that Malcom will be becoming a first-time dad, you can expect the podcast to continue to grow.
Malcom X. Bowser is a writer, and author, curator, and founder of Urban X Podcast and UrbanX.nyc blog. As a Bronx native, he navigated his urban experience by being both book and street smart. He has always been a voracious reader. He is an entrepreneur that runs a fully online publication and online clothing brand from his home. He has a growing Youtube channel that has amassed over 6.6 million views and 51 thousand subscribers and counting. He does a weekly podcast with his father called the Urban X Podcast, which is often called "the best father and son podcast." As the son of an educator (his mom), and an author (his dad), Malcom has grown up with his nose predominately stuck in a book. In high school, he attended Mount St. Michael Academy in the Bronx where he played football all four years and earned all-city honors his senior year. Malcom earned his B. A. in History from SUNY College at Old Westbury in 2015. He's been a contributing writer for his college's newspaper, the New York Trend publication, and other various blogs including his own. Through his writing, Malcom strives to dispel all myths, and correct all falsehoods and misconceptions about his community that was put in place by those who are not a part of them. He's woke, but he loves naps.
The Black Dot is a writer, author, lecturer, and emcee. The Black Dot began his career as a columnist for the underground Hip Hop newspaper called, “4 Korners.” His knowledge and wisdom of the metaphysical aspects of the culture provided great insight into the potential of Hip Hop’s future beyond the physical components of the art form. The Black Dot is the author of the underground, cult classic book, “Hip Hop Decoded," and his newest edition "Urban Culture Decoded." He is also an international lecturer who has taught about the culture of Hip Hop in Germany, London, Bermuda, Toronto, as well as HBCUs like Spellman and Howard. He also lectures at schools, bookstores, and street corners.
As an emcee, The Black Dot released his first album in 1988 under the infamous B-Boy records label as a part of a group called, “Tall, Dark, and Handsome.” In 1994, he then went on to start his own label and released his second album called, “A&R Killer, Da Hip Hop Play” as a part of a group called, “The Lethahedz” which uncovered many of the injustices that are still relevant in the music industry today.
