Episode 298: Big Fish Theory - Vince Staples

With a string of mixtapes, EP's, and one LP behind him, hip-hop's Vince Staples has been making a mark on the new-rap landscape for years now. On his new album Big Fish Theory, he's taking the art form into the future and bringing us all along for the ride.

Kevin, Marcus Dowling (Decades/Capital Wrestling), and Joe Lapan (Songbyrd Music House) dig into this landmark effort from the young MC, and consider what this means for the future of hip-hop, where Staples is going to land once he comes down from the stratosphere, and much, much more. 

PLUS! Get to know the superfly jams of R&B/jazz/hip-hop supergroup The Pollyseeds before their album Sounds of Crenshaw, Vol 1 drops on 7/14. (This Friday!)

Episode 155: Chester Watson - Past Cloaks

You should treat antique instruments with respect and care...unless you're in a Tarantino film.

Florida hip hop wizard Chester Watson put all of his "greatest hits" into a blender and  hit "crush." The result is, Past Cloaks, one of the most exciting records of 2016 to date.

Typefigher/Joy Buttons/Polyon guru Ryan McLaughlin (along with DC music vets John Scoops and Erik Sleight) is back with yet another new band  - Jauze - and suddenly everything old is new again. You looking for jams? Jauze has got jams.

We've got hot sauce in our bag...and it's gotten all over everything. Help.
