Welcome back to week 2 of the slightly-reformatted Dad Bod Rap Pod as recorded under “shelter-in-place” conditions so we are not able to meet in person. This week all 3 co-hosts share what their lives have been like lately, what they’ve been listening to and watching to fill the time, and of course we get a little deep on some new rap releases including R.A.P. Ferreira’s Purple Moonlight Pages and Jay Electronica’s debut album A Written Testimony. Our featured interview this week is with Canadian beatsmith Elaquent, who recently released an album on Mellow Music Group entitled Forever Is a Pretty Long Time featuring guest verses from DBRP favorites such as Cavalier, Chester Watson, and Oddisee. Please note that the interview was recorded before the Covid-19 pandemic so it has a pretty light tone. All of the beats on this week’s episode besides our theme song (produced by DJ Albert Jenkins) are from Elaquent’s Baker’s Dozen album. Next up we have an interview with friend of the program, producer Controller 7. He has a new album called couch in collaboration with MC Mestizo featuring cuts from DJ D-Styles. It’s available on Bandcamp for the time being, and may be released physically in some form in the future.
