This Week in Hype: Fuck Haters & Jam Master Jay's Legacy with TJ Mizell


That's right, it's another edition of the "This Week in Hype" podcast. You'd think I would have been struck down by a lightning bolt from God by now, but nope, still going strong. I can only assume Sweet Baby Jesus is a fan. 

This week, I talk about how Munchos are the superior potato chip, tell everyone who thinks I'm a terrible writer on Reddit to go fuck themselves, and bring on TJ Mizell to talk about carrying on his father's legacy and the future of DJing. 

Discussed This Week

* This week, I don't even bother to come up with a fake commercial and just talk about how amazing Munchos are. Get up on game.
