Just discovered and digging it!

I’m playing catch up! Glad I found this podcast. Love hearing the Indy label talk of the 90s and early 2000s.

The best rap podcast in the game

I listen to a good amount of rap podcasts and this is the best. They’re one of two I never skip an episode of. I think the main reason it’s the best bc they’re all rappers themselves and their perspective is beyond what a fan would ask or talk about. Although of course they’re fans of rap.

Rough listen…

I get it, everyone can do a podcast these days but sheesh…the production of this, everyone talking over each other, the lack of editing out unnecessary content and frankly multiple inaccurate comments made this a really rough listen. I’m speaking specifically of the Common episode. The attempts at humor fail for the most part and it sounds like a bunch of bitter rappers. I’m actually surprised that Sean (who I like a lot, does really good professional work on Can’t Knock The Shuffle and The Questions) agreed to be on this show.
