Let’s get it on!!! Boxing x HipHop are married to the hip. The sport is brutal, rough and rugged, and importantly, filled with boundless skill. It is not called the sweet science for nothin’!! HipHop definitely has a similar parallel. We honor its coexistence with an ep. filled with great convo and a larger diverse than usual array of sweet sounding music! We are blessed to be joined by boxing experts Dan and Rudy (aka the “Boxing Intellect”) to break down some important topics including their pic for best boxer, ring entrances, all things Iron Mike, Banda x Rock, and my personal favorite, Salvador Sanchez’s afro (r.i.p.). Brand Nubian, R. A. the Rugged Man, Fashawn, Sean P(!), Public Enemy, the Wu and DMX bring the noise on this one to name a few. Come and enjoy a few rounds of the sweet sounding science on us!
