Episode 230- Got It Out The Mud with guests Vic Spencer & Small Professor

Dynamic dous have always held a special place in rap history. We needn’t rattle off the iconic rapper/producer combos because we all know the potential alchemy that exist between rhyme spitter and the beat maker. On their newest collaboration Mudslide, Chicago rapper Vic Spencer and Philadelphia producer Small Professor come together and tap into that legacy of one rapper one producer magic.

We were fortunate to have both Vic and Small Pro on the show this week to talk about the new album, annoying rapper trends, and more. Hosts Nate LeBlanc, David Ma, and Demone Carter also eulogize the Chaco Taco, praise the new Mykah 9 book My Kaleidoscope, and recap a recent live performance by Devin The Dude in San Jose.

Episode 229- Her Word is Bond with guest Psalm One

As rap music continues to mature as an art form more and more rappers are telling their stories on the page as opposed to just on the mic. We were fortunate to have Chicago-based rapper Psalm One join us this week to talk about her new book Her Word Is Bond (which is out now via Haymarket books). Part memoir, part music journalism, Her Word is Bond takes an unflinching look at underground hip hop culture through the eyes of a queer Black woman. Psalm talked to us about the process of making the book and how it impacted her mental health. She also shares some cool stories about her high school former classmate and current rapper/podcast impresario Open Mike Eagle.

Hosts Nate LeBlanc, David Ma, and Demone Carter also lament the break-up of the pioneering comedy duo Desus and Mero. As a special bonus, there are clips from the recent Dad Bod Rap Pod live event Slap Box included in this episode.
