Episode 29 – We’re Back!!

Play

On July 12, 2011, we recorded an episode that would have been Episode 29, but we’re not going to release it. In addition to being plagued by equipment malfunctions, we just weren’t having a good night in the studio.

So, we now present the official Episode 29, recorded five months later, on December 5, 2011. We kept referring to this as the first episode of Season 2, but to keep with what seems to be a standard for podcasting, we’re foregoing the seasonal naming and making this the official Episode 29.

In this episode

  • Matthew Barnaby (ESPN / Buffalo Sabres) arrested again
  • Texts from Bennett
  • Mac Lethal – “Look at Me Now”
  • Kanye & Jay Z – “Watch the Throne”
  • Drake – “Take Care”
  • Mac Miller – “Blue Slide Park”

In the mix

    • Travis Porter Feat 2 Chainz & Young Jeezy – “You Don’t Know (Remix)”

Seeking a New Voice

Voiceover Talent

As we prepare to record our second season, we’d like to let Emerson retire to his Manchester estate. So, we’re looking for a new “voice of the Hip-Hop Talk Show.”

Feel free to send us a demo of your mic skills—and keep in mind: while it’s nice if you have a “golden” voice, that may not be our deciding factor. You might have a unique voice, you might be able to yell like Lil Jon, or you may sound like a phone-sex operator. Whatever the case, all are welcome to submit a sample of your voiceover chops. If we get a bunch to choose from, we may listen to samples on an upcoming episode and let the listeners chime in on the judging.

The Fine Print

If you’re in the Buffalo, NY area, we can provide recording services, otherwise you’ll need to be able to provide clean recordings.
