Happy #TBT !! The snow pushed back a MAJ Juan Ep which will be recorded next week. In the mean time, for the new heads who have never heard it and the OGs who haven’t heard it in a minute — here is the first Juan Ep ever from 2007! Awkward!
We are a week away from one of the biggest Juan Eps of all time so this week Ciph and I just got together to catch up and talk. We talked about Carhart girl, Ciph’s new life, my first trip to London which is this weekend, Common and John Legend’s Oscar win, and the gift I gave my brother for his birthday. Just some classic Juan Ep for you guys….
Jersey Joe aka Joey Jumpoff stopped by and was much more chipper than usual! Why? Well it sounds like Joe is joining the podcast world which is going to be MAJ. But he also just was in the mood to shoot the breeze and catch up. He also brought our psychotic friend Marissa Mendez who you may remember from the end of 2014 episode. Enjoy!
Ignore the troll from Ciph. Juan Ep returns with another state of the union. We also talk about my father’s obsession with Gideon Yago, cursing too much, and some solutions to Juan Ep’s financial questions. plus phone calls to Donald Glover’s manager, Fam, Nore (who was ACTUALLY on the run), and Questlove’s voicemail.
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!
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) !!!
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.
