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 You’re Outside, late last year featuring some of our favorite MCs. Our second interview this week is with the legendary publicist, author, and one of hip-hop’s first professional explainers, Bill Adler. Bill worked at Def Jam during the dawn of hip-hop’s international expansion. He worked with Run-DMC and LL Cool J among many other foundational artists, and has had a long and interesting career in the art world as well. DBRP is a proud part of the Stony Island Audio network, the only podcast network with two essential hip-hop podcasts according to a recent Uproxx article!
