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!!!
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’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.
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!
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!
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!
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.
FINALLY! 2 hours with Funk Flex live from Gallapagos in Brooklyn. Flex gives his entire history including how he came up, met and idolized Red Alert, made it to Hot 97 and much more. He even has some kind words for Dame Dash, explains his semi rocky relationship with Jay-Z, and tells an amazing story about begging Puff to put him on back in the day! WHAT?!

JD came by to talk about a new dope artist he has named Royce Rizzy who you can peep right here. However, the bulk of this 75 minute Juan Ep is spent discussing the amazing career of JD. We start out discussing his role as a kid on the Fresh Fest tour, continue through the formation of Kriss Kross, stories of how he had TLC before they were on LaFace, Biggie and Da Brat talk, and much much more. Great guy. Great episode.
DJ Clark Kent and Ronnie Fieg came by to plug their big sneaker event in Westchester on Sept 21st, but naturally we turned this into the amazing history of DJ Clark Kent. From Red Alert, to Marley, to Hov, to BIG, sit back and enjoy!!
