NEW Juan Ep — What’s Happening with Ciph?!

There is a lot happening at the station and with Nessa starting the afternoon shift on Monday at 3 pm, where does that leave Juan? We discuss all of that, Ciph’s weight loss, and much more on a NO GUEST Juan Ep!

Salaam Remi on Juan Epstein!


We’re back for the 2015 and ish is about to go to another level. Let’s start off with one of the greatest producers ever! You knew this guy was great, but you didn’t know how great his story is and just how many hits he’s made. Kick back and enjoy the first Juan Ep of 2015!

Juan Epstein 2014 Finale!!!

To close out the year, Ciph and I just sat down and did some catching up. For everyone out there who likes us for the same reasons you like other hip hop podcasts who came after us–this podcast is not for you. This is for the Juan Eppers who want to hear Ciph and I talk that shit. We did get to some actual topics like the Azealia vs Iggy situation, our feelings on J Cole, Ciph’s bike getting stolen, and we answered lots of listener mail. 80 min of Juan on Juan (Epstein).

Happy holidays (or nah) !!!

Primo and Royce the 5 ‘ 9 on Juan Epstein!

Plus Adrian Younge….


PRHYME is one of the best albums of the year so to celebrate we had Royce, Primo, and Adrian come by to talk about it, their history together, and Primo’s history in general. As we discuss on the show, this will be the first of several DJ Premier episodes, but still it was a nice start nonetheless. The show begins with just Ciph and I talking shit but the guys show up at around the 30 minute mark. Some highlights include awesome Group Home stories, issues between Puff and Jeru, and much more. Happy holidays from Juan Ep!!!


Chris Rock and ?uestlove on a MAJour Thanksgiving Juan Ep!!!!!

Today is a rough day. If you want to ignore the pain of the world today and grab a few laughs–check this out…..RIP Michael Brown…

Chris Rock

Chris Rock’s awesome new movie, Top 5, is in theaters on December 5th. To celebrate, our number 1 fan and the film’s music guru, ?uesto, brought the BK legend and hip hop aficionado by to talk about the movie, his incredible hip hop history, and just how highly he ranks Kanye in his own top five.

No I.D. on a Classic Juan Ep!!!

Ok this is a really special podcast. For starters, No I.D. is an amazing interview and his story is incredibly inspirational. Also Ciph was called into some Hot Mixer’s meeting and my old cohost and dear friend Quartermaine happened to be visiting so he jumped in for Ciph. No I.D. goes through who his entire career, discusses the ups and downs with Common, and breaks down his incredible history with Kanye. ENJOY!

No I.D.




The inventor of the scratch, ladies and gentlemen. Yes — this week we are celebrating the 41st anniversary of the Zulu Nation all over NYC so to celebrate we brought in the TRUE OG of the Scratch to tell his story–and for some help we brought in the one and only, DJ Scratch. Don’t worry–his episode is coming next! Enjoy!

Backstage at Def Jam 30 Juan Ep!

A bit of a f*ckfest but fun nonetheless. Ciph and I hang out with DJ Semtex, Parish Smith, the DJ Twinz, Warren G, and DJ Scratch, and get dissed by Gabrielle Union. Many more random cameos and fun for all!

DJ Quik on Juan Ep!!

Ciph and I caught up and broke down the Funk Flex live Juan Ep for a while. Then the OG DJ Quik came by and talked about his amazing career, his relationships with MC Eiht and Suge Knight, and much more.
