This podcast is a good vibe for those older HipHop heads. It’s pure, these dudes know their stuff. Highly recommend and looking forward to what’s next!
It’s not a wrong thing, to be addicted to the microphone like a heroin fiend
Dear 90’s-00’s Hip Hop: you should love Jim and Neil, because they reminisce over you.
And listeners, what more can I say about your co-hosts? They put the flavor in your ear. Swatches and Boomboxes is a trip down memory lane. You’ll end up listening to these bi-coastal heads chopping up classic albums, and fiend to jump back into Spotify, or hunt on YouTube for rare tracks. Guaranteed you’ll dig in the crates and hear old records with new ears. Jim and Neil constantly update the formula by throwing out names of new artists they’re checking out as well. And the featured guest comedians always bring a little savory/sweet exotic hypnotic to the concoction. 5 suns, moons, and stars to these Gods.
