ItsTheReal x Jadakiss – A Waste of Time Podcast (Ep. 25)

Wednesday, November 4th, 2015


This week on ItsTheReal’s ‘A Waste of Time’ Podcast, they welcome Jadakiss, who’s out and about pushing his new album Top 5 Dead or Alive. They toss around such topics as the infamous threat to toss a refrigerator at Puff during the “Let The Lox Go” era, battling Ma$e on 125th Street, how he came up with his Rap name after signing with Bad Boy, ghostwriting, the beef with 50 Cent and much more.

Eric and Jeff being from Westchester, this is an especially interesting listen for anybody who also hails from Yonkers or the surrounding area. Kiss touches on some 914 specific gems such as attending Gorton High School (which also happens to be my alma-mater), whupping Harrison High (Jeff and Eric’s old school) in football, Westchester Community College and Styles working at Odd-Job in Cross County, where he stole instrumentals for their Bomb Squad mixtape.

Killer Mike & El-P – Meow The Jewels: A Short Paw-cumentary

Friday, October 30th, 2015

Meow The Jewels, the cat-sound infused remix project from Run The Jewels, is easily one of the most unique undertakings in the history of Rap music. In a new ‘Paw-cumentary’ from Mass Appeal, the pair talk about the inception of the project as tongue-in-cheek RTJ2 deluxe package, the real world difference it ended up making and what that represents from a social perspective. Here’s a fun fact: This project that essentially started as a joke allowed Mike and El-P to make two donations of $20,000 each to the families of Michael Brown and Eric Garner, and there’s nothing funny about that.
