This week's guest is musician, designer, producer, and hip-hop lifer Real Bad Man. We took notice of Real Bad Man a few years ago upon the release of the collaborative album with Boldy James.

Great conversation this week with one of our favorite contemporary artists, the incomparable Quelle Chris. Back again for his second interview with us, and somehow still on the tour that he was on last time we spoke, we are primarily addressing his new album Deathfame. The record is a lamentation about the music industry and the inherent conflicts …
 
Planet Asia is an absurdly dope and prolific MC who has been an underground mainstay for many years. We were happy to talk to him about some of the many albums and projects he has coming up, his vault of unreleased material, and how you only get to be the new guy and subject to label bidding wars once in a lifetime. In the intro segment Nate and De…
 
This week we are joined by the excellent rapper Wordsworth. He is a hip-hop lifer, a deeply clever MC and an icon of the cypher era.

We chop it up about his w…

Hard to believe but the year is a quarter over, so we spend the intro discussing our favorite records of the first three months of 2022. After that we have a good interview with Wildchild, a veteran MC who burst onto the indie scene with Lootpack in the 90's and has been putting out music ever since. His new record Omowale is an excellent example o…
 
This week we have some Academy Award chatter and then we are talking about the true old school period of hip-hop's history. Sometimes called the park jam era, the period when hip-hop was primarily a practice of urban youth and not a recorded music is an under-discussed and deeply important time in history. Our guest this week, Easy A.D. of the lege…

Spring has sprung which means it's allergy season but also baseball season, so we are playing two today. First up we have a good chat with Brooklyn-based producer Steel Tipped Dove. It sounds like hyperbole, but it is a fact that some of the best modern rap music in the world was recorded in his home studio. He also released an album, Call Me When …

This week we are joined by one of the greatest freestyle rappers to ever walk the planet, the legendary MC Juice. His life and career have had the fair share of ups and downs but the one thing no one can dispute is that Juice is one of the most gifted extemporaneous rhymers in the history of hip-hop. In this in-depth interview we cover some of his …
 
This week we have a great conversation with rapper Fat Ray of the almighty Bruiser Brigade. We are fans of Ray's album Santa Barbara and his streetwise, verbose approach to rapping.
