Hip Hop heads that decided to record the conversations we love to have about the culture. This is for the people like us that don't get to have them nearly as often as they wish. So, we want to invite all of you to come join us in these discussions/debates. We go in-depth on all things about hip hop culture; the dialogue we wish was on a large platform. We might start the conversation, but we want to hear YOUR thoughts. Hit the Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/hhrtpodcast) and let\'s chop it up! #PullUpAChair
Album Review: Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers
After being able to sit with the album for a week, we come back to give MMTBS a more formal review. As usual, major debate ensues. Listen to what each of us had to say about the album after giving it a few listens and if anything changed from our initial reactions. Let us know your thoughts in the comments. #PullUpAChair
First Reaction: Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers
It's been toooo long sine we posted an episode. But if anybody was to bring us out of hiding, it's the man who does it best. Recorded the day Mr. Morale and the Big Steppers released, we talk about how we feel after the very first listen. Although we have a more formal review that we'll also drop, this is--as Dev reminded us plenty of times--only our initial reaction to Kendrick's latest offering. Even though we're a few weeks removed #PullUpAChair and let us know how you felt about this the first time you listened.
An Ode to Biz Markie (and Beat Boxing)
Recorded soon after the news of Biz Markie passing, we share our thoughts on his last legacy in hip hop. And, as one of our greatest beat boxers in hip hop history, we also show love to the art of beat boxing and how important it is to the culture. As always, #PullUpAChair, press play, and let us know your thoughts in the comments!
Too Much Music--Revisited
Right after our last episode where we discussed whether or not rappers could release too much music, Benny was interviewed and seemed to side with Milan's point of view. We revisit our convo with these new comments in mind. #PullUpAChair, press play, and see if Benny changed any of our minds!
Can Great Artists Release Too Much Music?
Consider artists such as Benny the Butcher or Ransom who release music at a crazy rate. Are they over-saturating themselves? Is it even possible for over-saturate if the music you're putting out is quality? Is there something to be said about fans being able to keep up with all the new releases? Does it benefit artists to not release music and just live for a while? We discuss all this and more in this episode. #PullUpAChair
Note: You may hear a little more colorful language in this episode than you usually do (in case you squirm at that type of thing).
Despite the heavy loss of DMX, we were truly able to celebrate his life and legacy on this episode. Joined by the homie Will Jackson, we discuss what X meant to hip hop and how his vulnerability was one of his greatest assets as an artist, give him his just due as one of the greatest featured artists of all time, and discuss our favorite songs/versus from the dog. We keep it light, but still very much paying respects to the legend that is DMX. So, #PullUpAChair and join us for this tribute.
Great topics!! Even better debates!
Great podcast. I find myself really agreeing with a lot of content you guys put out
Hip hop education
I love these hip hop discussions that need to be talked about and heard. Especially for the youth
