Check Out My Episode of the "Talking Points" Podcast, It's Pretty Sweet


First and foremost, ya boy look gorgeous. 

Second, my most sincere of sincere apologies, but there won't be a "This Week in Hype" podcast this week because I've been sick and my daughter's on spring break and blah blah blah. You don't care why, I barely care why. There's no podcast because I dropped the ball, my bad. But I come bringing peace offerings.

The good folks at the Smoking Section (aka the site I always check right after I check DJBooth) launched "Talking Points" a few months ago, hosted by Raj, and for their latest episode they were foolish enough to invite me on and let me ruin their pristine podcast. Plus, they hooked up the first Nathan Slavik-related illustration in the history of western civilization, so I've got that going for me, which is nice.

5 New Albums You Need to Hear This Week

Press play on new releases from EST Gee, Chucky73, Tierra Whack, Masicka, and Mike Akox.

Long story short, if you fucks with "This Week in Hype" you'll fucks with this episode. Raj and I talk about who the best album-titlers in hip-hop history are, how a bout with cancer insipired Raj to get into music, my ScHoolboy Q brawl story, some behind-the-scenes talk of how DJBooth and Smoking Section run and much more. Listen on SoundCloud or on iTunes if you feel so inspired. 

Enjoy, and I promise, a new "This Week in Hype" will be in your earholes next Friday.
