Marvin “Krondon” Jones III Speaks On Starring In ‘Black Lightning’ And His Rap Career (Video)

Been really into the latest addition to The CW’s #DareToDefy lineup, “Black Lightning.” Dope from all angles. And a word on casting: When ‘Scooter’ from “Living Single” (shout to the homie @65phenom aka BigDee for that non-trivial bit of TV trivia) is the hero… AND your main bad guy is KRNDN aka Krondon (of Strong Arm Steady)… AND you have Salim Akil and Mara Brock Akil at the helm… your show is Black af and lit as ‘Lightning!’

*needle scratches record*

But waaait. Krondon is on TV as the villain?? Doooope! Watch him speak on that and other stuff in this interview.
