20. XE La Soul - Jung Punk Musician
My guest today is Alexander Alvarez, aka XE La SOL. Alex is a man who has a very pure and complicated relationship with music and the world, and one of the most beautiful hearts and minds I’ve had the privileged to watch unfold on this show.

One of the questions I ask every guest is “What is your measure of success?”
It was after talking with Xela, that I realized my own answer, which is that I’ve already succeeded because I have chosen to make music and support others who do.
That’s the sort of truth that bubbled up in my brain after four hours chatting with today’s guest. So I’ve decided to break his interview up into two parts. Today is part one, and next Monday come back for part two.
