King Asiatic Nobody’s Equal. It’s not every day we get to sit with a legend. Kane goes deep with his history, what he thinks about Mr. Cee, how he produced the majority of ‘Long Live The Kane’ with no credits, how Doug E Fresh taught him how to rock the crowd, how some cats from The Juice Crew wasn’t fuxin with him, how he really wanted to battle KRS-One, what Madonna smells like, how he shopped a young Jay Z with no success, why he started wearing purple silks and such… This one is a marathon, but with Kane, ain’t no half steppin’.

Showbill by Theotis Jones

This is the one you’ve been waiting for. Damon Dash talks Aaliyah, life without Jay Z, how he’s completely done with the music game, why he was an asshole to anyone who got in his way and why the kind of “broke” he is might be the best thing in the world. We also get some very tense moments as Just Blaze finally airs out why he didn’t eff with Dame.  Ya’ll truly ain’t ready for this dynasty thing.

The Star and Buc Wild Episode

Star and Buc Wild. Couldn’t control these cats, even with Dallas Penn on deck. In a rare interview, Star shared his past, how he was an actual street pimp in New York City in the early 1980’s, how he went to war with a handgun against a Dominican chick armed with and uzi and got sprayed up, his cocaine and mescaline fueled days, how he pimped MTV, Hot 97 and Power 105, why he has no issue with Big Tigger, how he’s never been impressed with Howard Stern, his love for DJ Vlad, what his hate is really about, how he doesn’t know who the fuck Just Blaze is, how someone who doesn’t fux with Hip Hop became a Hip Hop icon and more. This was too much. Dig in my cousin.

Due to popular demand (and a last minute cancellation by Brooklyn’s own Joey BadA$$ and Dyme-A-Duzin) there were no special guests on this week’s show—but we did get to have the Cheat Code Just Blaze call in to talk about his current smash hit “Higher” with Baauer, Dallas Penn recapped his LoEnd Theory event, we got to interview two new potential interns and delivered a hilarious prank call to Premium Pete’s aunt, in which the cable company encourages her to start watching BET. Plus, DJ Benhameen continues to kill with his mixes. It don’t ever stop. #Nemanati!

Show Bill by Theotis Jones

Raekwon stopped by to drop some Lost Jewels on the crew as we tried to cram 20 years of rich history into one show. We talked about his love for house music, what makes him and Ghost stand out from the rest of the clan, living under the Rza dictatorship, how he made the Ralph Lauren Snow Beach ‘Lo piece a classic and what his name is via the Wu-Tang Name Generator. The Chef also drops a few bars on beats supplied by Just Blaze. Verbal intercourse indeed.

Video: The @ElliottWilson Interview, Part 2

Hate Elliot Wilson, aka YN because of his self-branding? Looked up Rapradar.com on Alexa and found that it’s not getting as much as the next site documenting the culture? Guess what fuckybergs? Yellow Nigga could care less, and knows that his “old ass” is making new shit around the clock while you’re still wiping the cold out of your eye. Watch and learn, young folk. Watch and learn … (Part 2 of 3)

If you’ve ever read The Source (back in the day) or XXL Magazine (also, back in the day) you’re familiar with Elliott Wilson‘s work.

Amidst the hype surrounding their reported $15 million dollars and numerous e beefs (including one with our very own Dallas Penn) the Rap Genius posse stopped by to clear the air and share what they’re really about.

Video: Al Lindstrom Presents ‘Get Ready For Combat w/ @Combat_Jack’

It’s an honor to be recognized by cats like Al Lindstrom. It feels good to be on the other side of the interview. I had fun with this.
