Episode #53

JMack, Phro, and I were back at it this week, and this show is SERIOUS! To get things started we discussed our nomination for a VH-1 Hip-Hop Honors award. Later in the show we got Jay Casteel (CEO of Ballerstatus.com) on the phone to get his take on being nominated in the Best Hip-Hop Lifestyle Site category. We talked about NYCs latest beef involving Saigon and Prodigy/Mobb Deep. We also covered Kanyes first-week sales victory over 50 Cent, and we brought in Milk Dee of Audio Two to get his take on the entire Kanye vs. 50 marketing campaign. Milk also spoke at length about how many times Audio Twos classic record “Top Billing” has been sampled, his behind-the-scenes success in the music game as a producer, and his video parody of 50 Cents “I Get Money”. We also continued our commentary on the Jena 6 situation (this is before we were aware of Bells release), and took a look at Jesse Jacksons comments about Barack Obamas involvement with the case. Episode #53 is jam packed with 6 fire t
