Episode 197- Sonic Boom with guest Rob Sonic

This week we are pleased to have the opportunity to speak with Rob Sonic, a talented MC/producer who has been active in independent hip-hop for decades as a solo artist and in groups like Sonic Sum and Hail Mary Mallon. In this wide-ranging conversation we cover his influences, writing style, and recently-released album Latrinalia. DBRP hosts Nate and Dave are huge fans of Rob’s early work in Sonic Sum and the textured, poetic take on underground hip-hop that the group represented. This episode, like the others, is brought to you by Stony Island Audio, which feels kind of an indie hip-hop label in that we do this for the love of the culture but occasionally get mentioned in a magazine or a Spotify wrapped list.

Episode 196- Cigarettes For Dinner with guest David Gborie

It’s the DBRP Thanksgiving special! A little personal tray of stuffing to help you through the holiday weekend. We are joined by the hilarious standup comic David Gborie, who you may know as the voice of Comedy Central or from his excellent long-running podcast All Fantasy Everything. David is such a hip-hop head that he literally did not listen to any other kinds of music until his mid-20’s, and he joins us today as we give thanks for hip-hop moments we are grateful for. David Gborie chose the anthem “Everyday” by G. Dep, Dave Ma is thankful for the Ego Trip collective, Nate praises Kool Keith’s plastic wig period, and Demone is stuck on Mach-Hommy’s masterful “26th Letter.” We also talk obscure bay rap, the wacky world of public transportation, and the effortless flyness of Larry June. We are deeply thankful for the deep fried turkeys over at Stony Island Audio.
