Expect an all-star lineup of guests including G-UNIT star, Tony Yayo; the legendary lyricist KRS-One; hip-hop pioneer Marley Marl and well-renowned DJ Whoo Kid on the turntables.

Touching topics, like the use of the "N-word," diversity in rap music, a variety of issues facing the hip-hop community, views on Master P and more- Jeff spares no question and 50 doesn't back down in response.
