    MC Eiht Interview: Life Lessons

    This week's episode is an absolute honour for us and hopefully a pleasure for you. We have MC Eiht on Breaking Atoms! The Quadruple OG talks about his early work with Compton's Most Wanted, the importance of bicoastal collaborations, his longstanding friendship with DJ Premier and more. We didn't get one "GEAH" out of him but that doesn't matter. Listen and learn.

    Shawn Brauch Interview: When Pen Met Pixel

    Shawn Brauch Interview: When Pen Met Pixel

    Time to get glossy and flossy with this week's special guest - Shawn Brauch of Pen and Pixel! Shawn is the genius behind many of those diamond-encrusted album covers that "shaped the visual aesthetic of Southern hip-hop’s flashiest era". Shawn talks about meeting Master P, working with No Limit and Cash Money and seeing a 13-year-old Lil' Wayne fill up a note pad with rhymes. Press play to find out why his "more is more" philosophy gave an "underserved, underutilised and underappreciated people" a visual identity they could be proud of.
