Crowmouth Hogleg ,

Hip Hop heads hype up.

Having only one Episode available, it’s something promising. The interviewer in the episode showed respect to the Legendary Chuck D, at first just letting him hold forth, yet weaving in follow-up questions or remarks that seamlessly shifted the tone to conversational rapport. It was clear that there was a love of the art in the way the Chuck D episode was produced. I hope they all are this good.
