Episode 43: The Aftermath

Episode43_TheAftermath-2.jpg 

As the dust clears and the light begins to shed on the American landscape- we shake the dust off and bring you our mostest bigly and tremendous episode – The Aftermath. It has been a whirlwind of 140 characters madness, alternative facts and a parade of irrational cabinet picks, so what better way to vent than on the show. From the great big red state of Texas- JC takes some time off from being a “professor” at the Univ of Texas-Austin (@jaycee43public ) and joins us once again to console us, enlighten us and share his collection of aliases for He-Who-Shall-Not-Be-Mentioned.

 

Of course, we bring you some dope Hip Hop curated just for this Ep. So sit back, go through the cycle of emotions with us, play the He-Who-Shall-Not-Be-Mentioned Drinking game and try to stay away from “danger!” while we figure out what’s next.

Episode 42: That’s A Rap 2016

 Thats_a_Rap.jpg

2016 was a mofkr wasn’t it? But you know what, 2016 proved to be another solid year for Hip Hop. We had album after album of heat from the old timers (like us) making a comeback– De La Soul, Tribe Called Quest, The Game (well he never really left right?), Common, and Atmosphere.  The lyricists - Kendrick, Ka, Aesop Rock, ElZhi, Homeboy Sandman, and Skyzoo just to name a few. The freshman and the sophomores killed it too Vic Mensa, Domo Genesis, Flat Bush Zombies, Hodgy Beats, Isaiah Rashad, and of course Chance the Rapper. But let us forget not those that make us bob our heads, the Producers- Kaytranada, Knxwledge, L’Orange, Neon Brown, and Apollo Brown (and many more)

 

But in our humble opinion, the year belonged to one man- grinding for years and now getting his shine- Anderson .Paak  !

 

We took a minute but we back- so sit back, enjoy and reminisce on 2016 cuz it’s a Rap!
