DJ.DStar (or however he likes to type it) visited us and sat in for an episode. He had to share a mic with DJ Heat, so please don’t get mad at them for sounding 10 feet away.

Concert review

Pumice T and DJ Heat were in attendance at the Mac Miller show on Tuesday, March 1st, presented by After Dark Entertainment. We play a little of Mac’s track entitled “Donald Trump,” for those who are unfamiliar with his work.

Our premiere episode kicks off with the latest Eminem single, “Syllables,” featuring Dr. Dre, Jay-Z, 50 Cent, Status Quo and Cashis. It’s a really dope track, but the consensus seems to be that Dre is sounding a bit aged. This may mark the comeback of Aftermath Records. Also new this week is the “2010 Rap Up” by Skillz.

Pumice gets educated about Three 6 Mafia’s “Sippin’ on Some Sizzurp.”
