Welcome to another episode of the "

This Week in Hype

" podcast. If you've been looking for a podcast run by a functional alcoholic who sometimes talks about rap and other times talks about whatever the fuck he wants, good news, you've found it.

This week, I really spend some time with one of DJBooth's best writers, Yoh, to talk about the joys and pains of trying to become a full-time writer on the internet, what not to do it you're looking to start your own site and much more. Plus, I give away some shit from my house and ramble about Riff Raff's new album. Good times.

Discussed This Week

:

* Yo, how did I forget to mention that Tino came through with a new theme song and it's FUCKING AMAZEBALLS!?!?! You should

follow Tino

and

hear Tino's story in full

on the podcast.

* I bring on one of my favorite young writers, Yoh, to talk about trying to pay your rent by writing on the internet; it's kind of a whole thing. Along the way we also talk about my shittiest day job, the beauty of being creative for a living, the Olive Garden, the dangers of being in the middle and much more.

* Yoh is a dope human being. You should

follow him

and read his most recent article on DJBooth, "

Want Better Hip-Hop? Be a Better Fan

".

* This week's closing song,

Freddie Gibbs' "Deeper"

, which may or may not be about Ciara and Future. (It's not.)
