DJBooth_logo2x

And on the eighth day god created the

"This Week in Hype" podcast

, and the people celebrated because it was good, and joy and happiness was bountiful throughout the Earth.

For the latest edition, I dig deep into the "Who Could Beat Kendrick Lamar in a Battle?" debate,  talk to Aftermath songwriter and producer Dawaun Parker about the art and business of production and more. 

Discussed This Week

* As always, shout out to RefinedHype Nation member 

Tino

 for that dope theme song.

* Another trivia question, another chance to win some fresh gear from the always dope 

IM King

.

* I read some of the comments from RefinedHype Nation in our "

Who Could Beat Kendrick Lamar in a Battle?

" and attempt to inject some sanity into the hype around Senor Lamar.

* I bring in Dr. Dre right hand man
