Mogul is a show about hip hop’s most iconic moments, told by the people who lived them. Season 2 dives into the birth of southern hip hop. It all started in Miami with the 2 Live Crew, a group that took hip hop and made it faster, harder, and nastier than anything anyone had heard before. But in 1990 their music was declared legally obscene, and what followed is known today as the most controversial trial in the history of hip hop. This group, this city and this trial changed the course of music history as we know it. Mogul Season 2 features exclusive interviews with Miami legends like Trick Daddy, Rick Ross, Trina, Luke Campbell, Brother Marquis, Mr. Mixx, Walshy Fire, and more.

Killer podcast doco

This is remarkable stuff. As a hiphop fan from Australia, when I was a kid this was the kind of mythic stuff you never got to hear; inside tales and very frank recollections of the scene. The production, writing and presentation of the show is extremely good. Music is fly (both the subject music and the commissioned score). Best podcast documentary I’ve ever heard I think, on par with a Sondheim one I heard years ago.

Perfectly simple app ,
