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!
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?!
