This Week in Hype: Storm Warning Edition ft. DJ T-GUT & Kendrick vs. Cole

DJBooth_logo2x

I won't lie, it's been a crazy week in Berkeley. The first half of the week armored trucks were arresting protesters outside my house, the second half we got hit with a storm and I lost power. But I STILL DELIVERED THE "This Week in Hype" PODCAST BECAUSE I LOVE YOU. 

With the storm bearing down on el case de Slavik, I bring on the homie DJ T-GUT to talk about my favorite subject, me, and tell some crazy interview stories. Plus, we end with some good ol' fashioned J. Cole vs. Kendrick Lamar debating.

* As always, shouts to Tino for that dope theme song. You should follow Tino and hear Tino’s story in full on the podcast.
* I use the last ten minutes of my computer battery to record an emergency intro to this podcast because I love y'all. 
* We flip the usual script and Taylor (aka DJ T-GUT) interviews me about interviewing, and along the way I talk about that time 2 Pistols wanted to kill me and crashing and burning during a Pusha T interview. 
* And then, because it's kind of what I do, I hijack the interview and mostly end up talking to T-GUT about why Kendrick Lamar is still better than J. Cole, despite the brilliance of Cole's new 2014 Forest Hills Drive album.  
* This week's closing track, J. Cole's new "Tale of Two Citiez."
* Subscribe to the podcast on iTunes and only all the good things in the world will happen to you ever.
