RemainNameless ,

Hip Hops finest.

A lil piece.

Mediocre but could be LIGHTS OUT!

The guests are the only reason this podcast is even a 2-star.

The production & sound quality, NORE interrupting guests and talking over them, lines of questioning, random commercials spliced in at weird points and show length are so amateur it’s actually infuriating - because the money & names behind the project should make this so much better! Not to mention NORE’s terrible introductions for his esteemed guests - he’s clearly making it up on the fly and his guests deserve greater respect.

Maybe NORE needs to hit up Skateboard P and get the Neptunes back to produce the show.

SOUND

Aye, big fan of the cast but honestly y’all need BARE help with the sound situation. Please hire someone who knows what they are doing! This could be the best podcast out, instead it sounds like y’all are in a big open bathroom in up state New York. Fix up that sound my G’s!
