What is there to say about this?! Guru came up to the Upper West last night and we did two hours of talk about everrrrrrything. He talked D-Dot, Chucky Thompson, Puff, Hov, Bleek, Just, Kanye, and stories upon stories. You’re welcome!
Man what is there to say about this?! Informative, passionate, awesome, slightly drunk. It’s all here! Happy birthday Ciph! This was amazing. I thought I knew. Apparently I was wrong.
The title really says at all. Ciph and I were back together to talk about Ciph’s pre birthday depression, the passing of Phife, and Kanye dissing me at Phife’s memorial. If you didn’t hear that story — you will probably want to tune in.
We ain’t done. This aired Sunday night on Hot 97 and I had to give it to our Juan Ep Heads. Track list below….

Back in 2004, Phife Diggy came by my crib in Maryland and we talked about everything. I just found the interview and thought I would share. Almost an hour with our favorite Dog. We miss you so much man. PR
This has become a terrible week.
We recorded a ridiculous Juan Ep in my guest room with Laura Stylez and my friend from the UK, CarolineSM. That was Tuesday night and we had a blast.
After the news of Wednesday I did a 40 minute extra featuring a long talk with Michael Rappaport about his love for Phife and working with him on the Tribe doc. I also share some personal Phife memories. Expect a full retrospective next week, but we had to do something.
Joe comes back for the third time (I think) and this time brings Remy Ma. We cover a lot of ground here. We discuss the new music, Remy and Joe mending fences and much more. The bulk of this conversation, though, ends up being about Pun and the experience of his death/what it did to the Terror Squad. This is what I call “MAJJJJJJOUR” .
Daddy-O Stet is the heart and soul of the great Stetsasonic. He came by to tell us the history of Stetsa, the behind the scenes of Self Destruction and much more!
My man Quartermaine stopped by and we all shot the sh*t about the Troy Ave/Bada$$ BS, my Grammy weekend, Ciph’s job, Tracy Morgan, the Oscars, old school Flex, and much more. Over 80 minutes for that ass! Enjoy!
