Episode 117- Reviewing Paris with guest Animoss

This week’s show is a bit of a grab bag, with three distinct segments. First up our buddy, writer/DJ/producer Son Raw joins us at the virtual table for a discussion on the career of MC/producer/label head/activist Paris, a sometimes forgotten figure who played a big role in several strands of rap’s history, particularly in our native Bay Area. Next up we have an interview with producer Animoss, an LA native who has produced for Roc Marciano, Chuck Strangers and more, but most notably for Ka. They released a duo album as The Hermit & The Recluse a while back and he has a placement on Ka’s excellent new album Descendants of Cain. After that we have a discussion on Mobb Deep’s classic sophomore album The Infamous. Beats this week were provided by Darko the Super and we appreciate his contributions.

Episode 116- The Takeoff with guests Call Out Culture

This we we have a special crossover episode with our buddies Alaska, Zilla Rocca and Curly Castro, MCs and hosts of the podcast Call Out Culture. All 6 of us submitted a hip-hop related “hot take” and then everyone had a chance to respond. We call it The Takeoff. it’s intended to be a bit punchier than our usual winding discussions. Please click to listen to the rap nerd royal rumble and send us your feedback on the following hot takes:

1. There are only 2 perfect hip-hop albums, Main Source Breaking Atoms and A Tribe Called Quest Midnight Marauders
2. Born Like This is DOOM’s Best Album
3. Redman ruined Method Man
4. Nasir is Nas’s 2nd best album
5. Jay Electronica is overrated and the new album is mid
6. We all wasted our time listening to back pack rap, the music that has stood up form that era is the music we were all ostensibly against.

Beats for this week’s show were submitted by Zilla Rocca from his Bandcamp-exclusive recently-released beat tape. Make sure to tune into Part 2 on Call Out Culture’s feed for a deeper discussion!
