    Ep 30 - Benny The Butcher: Everybody Can’t Go

    Season 4 kicks off with Buffalo’s Benny The Butcher! He is back with his highly anticipated Def Jam debut. What better way for Torae and Bonsu to set off a new partnership with the Revolt Podcast Network than with a brand new album from one of today’s best spitters.

    Wu-Tang Clan: Enter The Wu-Tang 36 Chambers | 25th Anniversary

    It is common belief across the globe that the greatest rap group of all-time is the Wu-Tang Clan. The Killer Bee reign began with a gritty posse cut and transformative debut album Enter The Wu-Tang: 36 Chambers. On Black Friday 2023, HARD2EARN commemorated the 30th anniversary of Wu's 1993 intro with a live conversation at Brooklyn's historic Billie Holiday Theater (The Billie).

    Ep 27 - Drake - Nothing Was The Same (10 Year Anniversary)

    Ep 27 - Drake - Nothing Was The Same (10 Year Anniversary)

    "Give it time, we'll see who's still around a decade from now" - Aubrey Drake Graham

    A decade later I don't think there's any denying Drake's massive impact and staying power in music. For the latest episode of #Hard2Earn Torae & Bonsu get into Drake's 3rd album NOTHING WAS THE SAME. With so many questioning what is Drake's "classic" album, if any, let's get into this project and see if it's stands the test of time & if this could in fact be the one.

ALCON,
If you want a true unbiased account of an album, tap in to “Hard 2 Earn”. The reviews are thoughtful and honest, with the dare to offend because we know like Ms. Badu said “I’m an artist and I’m sensitive about my Ish” the Brothas Torae & Bonsu deliver and give a entertaining but real assessment!
So tap in and enjoy!
#Hard2Earn!
