Ciph and Rosenberg (no guest) talk Comedy Cellar, Miss Info, and Atlanta Trip

The title speaks for itself…..

OC Drops Jewelz (Get It??) on Juan Epstein!

I was geeked for this one. OC is one of my favorite 90s legends and I have never heard him talk. Ciph and I were lucky enough to get his story including his relationship with Jay-Z (deeper than you might realize), being MC Serch’s other protege with Nas, how him and Big L were actually just starting a group together when L passed, and how Time’s Up was originally a Pharoahe song that he took for himself.

Before O came through, Laura Stylez came by to be hilarious and adorable as per usual. Enjoy!

Lord Digga Talks Masta Ace and Ready to Die on Juan Ep!!

Don’t know Lord Digga? You slippin son. Digga was of course a key part of the INC in Masta Ace INC and then went on to produce multiple songs on Ready to Die and have an underground hit with “My Flow is Tight” on Game Records. Well he came by to clear the air about things Ace has said about their break up and tell us about working with BIG. Enjoy!

Consequence’s History of A Tribe Called Quest!!

Quence is doing the rounds promoting some new dope music so we decided to make this visit different and make it completely about his time with Tribe. The story starts with Q-Tip just being cousin Jon in Queens and goes all the way to the story of the fallout between Tip and Phife. Rap nerds rejoice!

A-Trak on Juan Ep!!

I know I always say this but this one is so special. A-Trak is truly one of us and we have known him for years but finally got to hear his entire story from being a DMC World champion at 15 to touring the world with Kanye West. Enjoy!


Trae tha Truth on Juan Epstein!!

The man, the myth, the legend of Trae the Truth. He tells us the whole story of his Radio One ban. This is some interesting sh*t!! Cop his album Tha Truth right now!

DJ Paul, Ciph’s Apology, and Much More on Juan Epstein!

The show starts on a serious note with Ciph making an apology to an amazing producer and after that DJ Paul tells us the Hypnotized Minds 3-6 story. Wish the episode was longer, but I promise my schedule will normalize soon!

Juan Ep Talking Meek/Drake, Hulk Hogan, Amy Schumer & More …..

Ciph and I had a lot to discuss. I had no idea that Ciph would have such strong feelings about Meek and Drake, but he did. So enjoy me and Ciph just talking about everything that is happening in the world today — including my love of Amy Schumer, and much much more.

Ralph McDaniels and Sacha Jenkins on Juan Ep!

Sacha Jenkins just directed a new film called “Fresh Dressed” about the history of hip hop fashion. He also happens to be man behind Beatdown, Egotrip, and now Mass Appeal. He brought Uncle Ralph who has stories upon stories from his years in the game as the man behind Video Music Box. This episode is one of my favorites in a minute. We’re back! Everyone chill!

Calling All Friends on Juan Ep

Well fine we didn’t call all of our friends. And we only got one friend on the phone, but it was Hannibal Burress. Plus Ciph and I discuss Charleston, PC sensitivity, Seinfeld, and much more. For the true heads!
