Epsiode 103- Phase 2 Tribute with guest Adam Mansbach

Great interview this week with author Adam Mansbach who provides insight on the life and career of the beyond-legendary hip-hop pioneer Phase 2. Adam has written several novels centered around hip-hop culture and written for and edited influential hip-hop publications but is best known for writing the “childrens’ book for adults” Go The Fuck To Sleep. In the other segments the fellas talk about the fact that rap songs seem to be getting shorter, and share some examples of hot tracks that don’t waste any time as well as some contributions solicited on Twitter.
