The Hypemen Podcast, The Lost Episodes: Bun B

Download DJBooth's new App, The PLUG Way.....way....way....back in the day (aka 2010), when the entire concept of a rap podcast was still in its infancy, there was the Hypemen podcast. Up until the last episode in July of 2011, the Rosenthal brothers and Jensen Karp delivered almost 50 episodes of incredibly nerdy, incredibly funny in-depth interviews, and RefinedHype was there to lend a helping hand. 

But then, like an Amazonian rainforest reclaiming a once great Mayan civilization, the Hypemen was lost to the fog of time. iTunes stopped carrying the podcast, we had to switch servers and our streams died, and just like that, not only would an entire internet generation grow up never knowing the Hypmen, but some seriously great hip-hop interviews would be buried.

Thankfully, I worked some server magic and managed to recover every episode, the guys were down to revive the podcast, and here we are. Over the next few weeks I'll be re-issueing some of the Hypemen's best episodes, starting with their excellent Bun B interview. We're talking Bun envying Jensen's Interscope deal, being a college professor, shooting the Big Pimpin' video, having just one line on Drake's song and much more. 

Enjoy, it feels good to have the Hypemen back in my ears (pause?).
