Absolutely excellent

Love this Podcast. Episode lengths are just right, stories offer an interesting look into topics from angles the general public may not have known about. Wonderful..

It catches and grips me with two of my loves: Politics and Pop Culture. Season 3 is equally as awesome as seasons 1 and 2 so far. It may take lovers of the first two seasons a while to shift gears but season 3 is right up there with the previous ones. Excellently done guys.

Where’s the Biggie Content?

I’m a huge fan of season 1 and 2. This is incredibly well researched and I’m enjoying so far; however, the Biggie content is extremely lacking. Heavily focused on Tupac. Maybe just change it to “Who Shot Tupac” instead? Feels a little skewed to his story and there hasn’t been more than 5 minutes of information on Biggie...

Stellar show and Season 3 is just as important

I’ve been disappointed to read how negative other reviews have been about season 3. The first two seasons are phenomenal and the third is just as, if not more, urgent in subject matter than the first two. It is the story of two murdered pop culture juggernauts, yes, but it’s also an examination of how hip-hop was an important part of the political climate that bubbled over with the Rodney King race riots. It’s a history about tensions between people of color and law enforcement that continues today.

Rap has been the platform and megaphone for people of color, especially at that time. Examining the legacy of Biggie and Tupac is just as important as delving into Watergate and the Clinton Impeachment.

Fantastic show. I can’t wait to listen to the many more seasons to come.
