Unscripted and From the Heart: Thoughts on the Healing Journey, Relationships, and Family (ft. Foundation Mecca and Lord Goldie)

A few weeks ago, we celebrated Sunday Funday with Lord Goldie, Foundation Mecca, and Chaun Davis of ViB. However, after the episode was when things got even more real.

Foundation and Goldie stuck around after the show, and we went extra deep on life, our relationships, and our own healing journeys — while the Zoom meeting was still recording the whole thing! The raw honesty and vulnerability is quite unlike anything we’ve ever presented here at The Quinn Spinn, and we wanted to make our truth available to you as a bonus episode!
