Everyone else, I know this is a longer episode, but so far the feedback has been great, and I concur. Watch the video if you have time, but for sure download the audio version and take us with you. We'll make your road trip, your commute to work, your house or yard work WAY more interesting in your iPod or on Stitcher Radio. Enjoy, we certainly did!
Payday Monsanto is no exception. I told Payday on the phone yesterday, even if we weren't friends, I'd still say he's one of my favorite hiphop MC's. In the hiphop world, the percentage of real artists doing what they love is so low compared to the nonsense you hear on the radio, or even the wannabes crawling up the ranks to get 2 minutes of fame.
Hiphop has always been about raw skills. When all the fluff disappears, real talent, lyric skills, delivery, confidence, humor, and even a splash of arrogance is what separates respectable MC's from the average person who can make a few words rhyme.
