You’ll see host Joel Anderson perform an all-new Slow Burn story, one that illuminates the creative lives and tragic deaths of Tupac Shakur and Christopher “Biggie” Wallace.

Formerly Conrad Muhammad, Tillard once lead the Nation of Islam’s mosque in Harlem, and was known in the 90s as the “Hip Hop Minister” for his work with rap celebrities brokering peace in the community.

Musical selections will be played by DJ Donwill.
