    WE MADE IT EPISODE 30 YALL! It’s a doozy. In a very special episode the crew is joined by Sexosopher Dr. Zelaika Clarke and drummer Isabelle De Leon. What’s a sexosopher? What does OSHUN mean? I’m not even sure we’re experts yet, but you better listen to find out. We dive deep into the world of sexuality and gender stereotypes. In todays post #metoo world these topics are more important than ever, and surely affect you on a daily basis. Learn how to be conscious of others and lead the change. DJ Amen Ra drops a fire female forward set and we also dissect the hidden meaning behind todays misogynistic hip hop lyrics.

    Episode 027 - Manteca w/ TRESQUIRE


    Being an independent artist isn’t easy. You may have the talent and the work ethic but at the end of the day a good lawyer in your corner is important. In this very special (i.e. educational) episode, the TB&P crew dive deep into the wonders of art law with Hardeep Grover of TRESQUIRE Legal Services.  Hardeep breaks down the complexities of contracts and talks about how you can find a lawyer to help you achieve your goals as an artist. When you think of lawyers you think of boring old guys, but Hardeep always keeps it 100.

    Think canibus is legal in DC? We discuss the growing landscape of Canibus law in DC and around the country. The laws aren’t what they seem. Some other things are here too bro… Gigglefoot drops the first installment of FAKE NEWS and Amen Ra keeps the beats flowing.

    Lastly, what does Tresquire even mean? These lawyers man, I tell ya.

    Bruh, Red Bull finalist Dynamix is back on the decks! He joins the crew after using a few thousand of his frequent flyer miles to visit Washington, DC. With him comes the positivity and “Sunshine” (see what we did there) he brings from the city of angels. Dynamix chops it up with Aperture and Amen Ra after checking out the Redbull 3style US championships right here in DC. Shout to DJ Ease! on his win! Amen Ra ruins any attempt we have at Red Bull sponsorship, but it’s all good.
