233: Dealing With Artistic Burn Out

12/13/2020
While we often speak about the need to be as ambitious as possible when it comes to achieving your goals, we've rarely spoken about what happens after you do.

One of our most popular episodes in the last two years was one titled "Dating Uncreative People."

230: Vangarde Album Liner Notes with Mr Lif

11/15/2020
Although we've had legendary underground MC Mr. Lif appear on the show before during our real estate episode, we haven't had a chance to chop it up with him about music.

229: How to Keep the Buzz Going

11/8/2020
For most artists, one of the things we look the most forward to is releasing our creations to the public. As a result, release day is right up there with birthdays and holidays for us. Unfortunately, the excitement of that day doesn't last forever. Eventually, the buzz that we had around our project starts to fade.

227: Full Production or Quick and Dirty?

10/25/2020
While attention to detail is a positive trait for an artist to have, it isn't without it's drawbacks. One of the biggest being the constant need to chase perfection in everything we create. Many of us put incredible amounts of time and resources into creating full productions that we hope have a big impact. But other artists aren't so hung up on perfection, instead choosing to make content quickly that is timely but might not be the highest quality. In this episode we dive deep into both...

226: The 90 Days of Discipline Challenge

10/18/2020
One year ago, we challenged ourselves to lock in on our art and commit more heavily for 30 days.

224: How Much Does it Cost To Release An Album?

9/27/2020
As two independent hip-hop artists, the topic of investing in yourself frequently comes up on this podcast.

223: Fame Versus Ownership and Kanye Versus Nipsey

9/20/2020
Because we do speak about ownership quite often on this podcast, it is always refreshing to see the conversation happen on bigger platforms. This week that happened courtesy of some viral tweets by Kanye West, who took to twitter to voice his dissatisfaction with his recording contract. He posted his contract for all to see, pointing out that even though he is now a billionaire, there is no way for him to ever get ownership of his music due to the nature of his contract.

In one album, it appears that Nas has addressed all of our past criticisms and finally gotten it right. In this episode, we talk about the album and whether Nas finally got it right. Let's...

221: Pharoahe Monch Versus O.C. Catalog Battle

9/6/2020
While it's very common for hip-hop fans to debate about who the best rapper or producer are, it's very rare for them to restrict those debates to only the artists catalogs. In this episode, we decided to debate which artist has the better catalog--Pharaohe Monch or O.C.? But instead of making it a barbershop debate where there is no score and no winner, we break down the competition into four categories, assign points to each, and determine a winner at the end. As fans of both artists, this...

While last week's episode about friendship killers got a great response from our listeners, it also made us realize that we may have overlooked a very important topic, which is how to make friends.

8/2/2020
As they say, good friends are hard to come by. Unfortunately, many of us have had no problems making friends, but keeping them is a completely different story.
