Episode 91- Cold Chillin Edition with guest Ben Merlis

This week we are joined by author Ben Merlis. His new book Goin’ Off, The story of the Juice Crew and Cold Chillin’ Records will be available on November 5th. We are such huge fans of Marley Marl and the Juice Crew, and it was great to discuss their impact on hip-hop with a careful researcher like Ben.

Episode 90- Court Report with guest Shawn Setaro

This week we discuss the Tekashi 69 case with Shawn Setaro, who has been attending and reporting on the case for Complex.com since the beginning. We also touch on the “stop snitchin” ethos and the ramifications of using rap lyrics and videos to convict people of crimes. It’s more fun than it sounds.
