Joe Budden launches his new podcast, I’ll Name This Podcast Later with some help from Peter Rosenberg and Hot 97′s Marissa Mendez. I’ve only heard a few minutes so far, but Joe’s a talker and you may recall that he used to hold down the Hot 97 Morning Show as a guest host way back when, so he should be fine.

LL Cool J on The Combat Jack Show

Tuesday, December 9th, 2014

llcoolj-combatjack

We couldn’t end this year without having the G.O.A.T. on. How he survived an abusive upbringing, studied his craft with early rap pioneers in the same rap dojo with Kool G. Rap, becoming the foundation stone that became Def Jam, building with Queens’ street legends, battling this rapper, that rapper and Jay Z, why he didn’t sign management with Diddy, the “Accidental Racist” thing, flipping burglars in his castle and the victory of seeing his wife survive Cancer, its all here and more. From Hollis to Hollywood, this episode is most certainly blowticious. LL Cool J will forever remain hard as hell. Pause.

The OG No I.D. sits down with Rosenberg and Quartermaine for a special edition of Juan Epstein.

Says Rosenberg:

Ok this is a really special podcast. For starters, No I.D. is an amazing interview and his story is incredibly inspirational. Also Ciph was called into some Hot Mixer’s meeting and my old cohost and dear friend Quartermaine happened to be visiting so he jumped in for Ciph. No I.D. goes through who his entire career, discusses the ups and downs with Common, and breaks down his incredible history with Kanye. ENJOY!

Joaquin “Waah” Dean on The Combat Jack Show

On the streets of the Tri-state, the reputation of the Dean brothers is as well known as it is respected. Dee and Wah, founders of the iconic Ruff Ryders record label that launched the career of DMX and famously rescued The LOX from Puff’s shiny suit campaign, are both shrewd businessmen, but you do not want to test their gangster. In this latest episode of the Combat Jack Show, Joaquin “Waah” Dean sits down with Jack and Premium Pete to recount his extensive  history in both the streets and the industry.

Says Combat:

You think you know the scope of the Ruff Ryders history? You heard all the stories about DMX, Eve, “The L.O.X.” Swizz Beats and the Def Jam takeover? Co-founder Joaquin “Waah” Dean takes the history back to the actual ground zero of Hip Hop with Kool Herc, to the legendary DMX vs Jay Z battle, to taking over the history and more. No shiny suits will be worn during the listening of this episode. Nothing but #BlockWork here b.

Cipha Sounds and Rosenberg sit down with their OG for a special episode of Juan Epstein. I shouldn’t have to tell you that Flex has an extensive history in the New York music and club scene and was present for countless historic moments in Rap history.

A summary from Rosenberg:

FINALLY! 2 hours with Funk Flex live from Gallapagos in Brooklyn. Flex gives his entire history including how he came up, met and idolized Red Alert, made it to Hot 97 and much more. He even has some kind words for Dame Dash, explains his semi rocky relationship with Jay-Z, and tells an amazing story about begging Puff to put him on back in the day! WHAT?!

UPDATED with a video clip from the conversation below.
