Absolutely the best 90s hip hop podcast

Been listening since early 2020, these guys really helped me through lockdown. As a guy who wasn’t born until the 21st century, I’m in the minority for my age. It’s great to know that 90s hip hop lives on through podcasts such as these and I’m not alone. Shout out to Ray I definitely share his views on hip hop.
