Episode 38- Ambitions of a Writer with guests Paul Thompson and Brian Coleman

We’re joined by journalist Paul Thompson to talk about the career of the recently departed Mac Miller and his great Pitchfork review of the new Armand Hammer record, Paraffin. The second segment is an interview with Brian Coleman, the author and editor of Rakim Told Me and Check the Technique vols. 1&2, which are indispensable deep dive interviews with the creators of classic hip-hop albums. We appreciate the beat submissions from Son Raw and Books One.

Episode 37- Media Assassins with guests Shaka Shaw and Jeff Weiss

How many of the top 10 best selling rap albums are actually good? We discuss that with journalist Shaka Shaw live in studio. The second segment is a wide-ranging conversation with journalist Jeff Weiss of Passion of the Weiss, the Washington Post, and soon The LAnd, a new magazine that is emerging from the ashes of the disgraced LA Weekly. We’d like to thank Jumbled for submitting the beats we used in between segments this week. Give him a listen on Soundcloud.
