This week we focus in on the idiosyncratic rap stylings of MC Paul Barman. We’ve been following Paul’s career since his life-changing collaboration with venerable producer Prince Paul in 2000. Paul’s intricately written rhymes have consistently improved over the course of many releases and he is one of hip-hop’s most unique characters. We were very pleased to speak with Paul and he proved himself to be a wily and active participant in the conversation. So please sit back and enjoy this slightly off-beat interview and some discussion and analysis of Paul’s place in hip-hop culture and a bit of talk about some recent live-streamed performances we enjoyed. Beats for this week’s show were submitted by Small Professor, who has a collaboration with MCPB dropping soon. Dad Bod Rap Pod is a proud part of the Stony Island Audio podcast network.
