Episode 120- Penultimate Fighting with guest Tajai

This week the guys welcome special guest Tajai from Souls of Mischief to the show! We are all huge fans of his work and look up to him as an entrepreneur, MC, and just general extremely smart person. In the second segment we take a closer look at Souls’ 1998 album Focus, their first independently-distributed work. The beats for this week’s show were submitted by Deuce Ellis and Camoflauge Monk from their new project Camo Ellis, which we highly recommend listening to. DBRP is a member of the Pantheon Podcasts network.

Episode 119- Beat Brought Back with guest Nate Patrin

This week the guys interview author Nate Patrin whose new book Bring That Beat Back is an in-depth look at the history of sampling in hip-hop music and includes examinations of Grandmaster Flash, Dr. Dre, Prince Paul and Madlib. Next up we discuss whether a few southern MCs are over or under rated: Devin the Dude, Trick Daddy and Ludacris, who is back in the public conversation due to his recent IG Live battle with Nelly. We also review lojii’s recent album Lo & Behold and rate it on our patented yah/meh/nah scale. Beats for this week’s show were provided by Jeremy Ford from his recent project Fresh Beets, Vol. 1. You can find more of his work here: jeremyford.bandcamp.com/
