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
Eminem's Legacy Debate
No, this is not us just rehashing all of the same stuff people have been talking about regarding the Snoop/Em "beef" (although it looks like it's all squashed now). We actually discuss much more by exploring what Eminem's legacy, how his perception among fans has changed over time, and what this all says about hip hop culture. A LOT of debates and arguments in this one. So go ahead and #PullUpAChair.
Bay Area Verzuz and Year End Rap Up
We discuss what was one of the most exciting Verzuz for us after watching E-40 and Too Short fully put on for the Bay. We also try to show love for some of our favorite albums this year that provided some good to what was one of the most challenging years for all of us. What we don't do is try to rehash all the depressing stuff that's taken during 2020. No need to relive all of that. Here's to a much better year ahead. Happy new year HHRT fam! #PullUpAChair
"Burden of Proof" Album Review
By now, you’ve probably seen nearly nothing but praise for Benny the Butcher’s “Burden of Proof.” Nothing different here, except we do all end up agreeing that Benny may be the closest thing to Nipsey we currently have on display in hip hop. Milan also revisit’s his stance toward Hit Boy after since he really liked Benny and Conway’s projects with Hit Boy, but not the latest Nas album. All love for Griselda on this episode. #PullUpAChair and press play.
Conscious Expectaion of Hip Hop?
Recorded weeks ago, just as it was announced that Breonna Taylor’s killers would not be charged with murder, we explore what expectations we [should] have from artists. We also discuss the concept of being seen without being a distraction, the need for balance between acknowledgement of current trends and maintaining joy, and how this twilight zone that is 2020 has influenced how we’re experiencing the world. We also do a whole break down on if an artist like Drake is better off not addressing the current social climate if he doesn’t feel equipped too or is it his duty to do so? #PullUpAChair and join the convo.
"King's Disease" Review (aka "No such thing as opinions")
I’m getting mad all over again listening to this episode! When legends like Nas drop, we should just be able to appreciate the music. But of course, what started out as our takes on “King’s Disease” (03:35) quickly led to some passionate discussions about whether or not this was a “forced” collaboration (27:40), the difference between reinvention and experimentation (50:40), a brief convo about the nuance of subjectivity (56:00), a quest to establish when Milan became the only person on earth whose opinions are universal facts (1:05:16), and more. One of the most frustrating conversations we’ve had in a while, but it’s exactly the type of hip hop debate we love to have. Recorded prior to Chadwick Boseman’s passing, we of course honor him and send love to all of us—but especially his family—who will miss his presence. That said, come #PullUpAChair, press play, and let us know what you think in the comments.
Random Rona Episode
We went longer between recording than we usually do, so a lot had transpired between episodes. Because of that, it took us way too long to determine what we would even talk about, but we were already saying a lot, so we just hit record and went from there. Most of the episode is focused on me somehow missing Jack Harlow's song of the century (2:00) and what hip hop's response to the Meg the Stallion situation says about the culture (22:25), but this ended up just being one of those episodes that we let carry us. So, press play, #PullUpAChair, and let us know your thoughts on anything we covered!
