Episode 70 – Music Sucks Now (w/@kbinge of Dead End Hip Hop)

Apologies for the delay, but as I’ve been saying all week, this special episode is WELL WORTH THE WAIT.

This week, we had our good friend Ken (@kbinge) from Dead End Hip Hop join us (again) for over TWO HOURS of music conversations. From Big Sean’s mediocrity to the death of radio and everything else in between, Ken was a wealth of information and he came ready to duke it out with yours truly.

Episode 69 – Sixty-Nines are Overrated

Not much in the way of “news” this week, so this episode is just straight up MUSIC TALK. And stories! And SINGING!

Episode 67 – Me No Conversate

Our longest episode ever is PACKED TO THE BRIM with that music talk you love so much. We had frozen margaritas too, so things get loud and ridiculous. Even more than usual.

Episode 61 – We Don’t Care What People Say

WE MADE IT TO 500 SUBSCRIBERS!!

You guys are the greatest. No podcast out right now has better listeners and friends. Seriously, I’m not just saying that to say it. You’ve stuck with us through everything in the past year or so, and I can’t appreciate you any more than I already do. It’s just not possible!

This episode is pretty much a love letter to you guys, and a bit of a discussion about opinions takes place at the end that I really think you should hear. We talk about Corinne’s new album (again), Zo!, and… mac and cheese balls. ENJOY!

(please don’t sue, I’m not making money off of this, I just wanna spread the good music to the peoples.)

Episode 59 – The Art of Cool 2016 (w/ @faruhdey)

“Cool?” “Cool.”

This has been the busiest weekend I’ve had in a very long time.

A few months ago, I heard about this festival called The Art of Cool out in Durham, NC. It had a lot of amazing acts attached to it, and since it was only about a six hour drive from here in Atlanta, I decided that I’d try and make time to attend. Then, some amazing women (shout out to Asiah and Sierra, even though neither of you could make it) had an even better idea: why not try and apply for press credentials?

In my mind, that’s a crazy idea. No way will that work. Why would a guy like me, someone with a small-time music podcast with a barebones website, ever get to have access to talk to artists like Anderson .Paak face to face? And yet, despite my pessimism, I was definitely accepted in the group for passes! So I took off a day from work, linked up with my high school friend Chris Russ (aka @faruhdey), and got into one of the greatest weekend experiences of my life. Listen to all of our stories, including casually running into Maségo and finding out he’s from the 757, re-encountering All Cows Eat Grass from the Hiatus Kaiyote concert, hearing Terrace Martin and Rapsody speak on To Pimp a Butterfly, and SO much more. (It’s a long episode, we barely had time to actually talk about new music!)
