Almost perfect

I love this podcast. Perfect for anyone into hip hop history. My only complaint is how people talk over each other. The most blatant example was Q interrupting Solange nonstop. Now I can’t not hear it. But I’ll keep listening because it’s that good.

Love it (with minor beef)

This podcast has been a savior in Covid. It satisfies my music nerding. The history, stories, knowledge, back stories and insight is incredible. I listen and learn even from episodes I wouldn’t expect to like.

Beef: hearing people eating during the recordings. I listen 90% on headphones. Couldn’t finish the Pharoah Monch episode. Someone had a spoon and bowl going on throughout the episode.( I feel like I recall Quest making a point about this NOT allowed in the past. )
Get your food on before you record folks!
