    141: Pusha T's Primo Beef Emporium

    141: Pusha T's Primo Beef Emporium

    It’s time for another beefcast. This week, we climb into the ring to assess the damage from both the Pusha T vs. Drake feud and the decidedly less musical but much more violent 6ix9ine vs Tadoe/Sosa/Chief Keef beef. We also spend some time discussing the death of rising star and abuser XXXTentacion, before looking at a bunch of Soundcloud rappers’ face tattoos.

    Time has passed, scars have healed and frosted tips have washed away. It's time to take stock and look back at the legacy of nü metal. What should we make of the genre that combined hyper-masculine posturing with extreme emotional neediness, and the most superficial techniques of hip hop with the most basic stylings of rock? Let's find out as we're joined by listener and patron Abe, owner and operator of the Okie Dokie Tattoo Parlour in East Los.

Dirty Dozen

This roving band of multitalented music mavens are the real deal. Accept no substitutes! Tune in to this podcast for lively, witty, insightful and surprisingly nuanced discussions of music and lyrics. Each episode offers a deeply satisfying mix of personal response, detailed analysis, and sheer fun! I recommmend, 5 out of 5 stars, would listen again and again.

Very high quality cast

Seems like not long before this thing will be on top charts. Better get in before the bandwagon! Perfect for most music and/or culture lovers. Actually it might be better for music novices as you learn a lot with each episode.

Do Not Break Your Phone

In the old days of radio the DJ’s would say things like “tune in to 95.5 and break the knob off of your radio.” Upon finding this amazing podcast I realized that no other podcast could match its glory and in the spirit of old radio, I smashed the button off of my phone. I’m writing this review to say, I love this show and THESE GUYS OWE ME A NEW PHONE!
