The Benny Blanco Show

Zany pop producer/songwriter extraordinaire Benny Blanco made an appearance on this week's NW3Radio to talk about how he got his start in the business, what inspires him to make music in 2015, and how he went from introducing Hell Rell to bongs to crafting "Tik Tok" for Ke$ha. He also took phone calls from fans and aspiring producers trying to peep game, and of course, demolished Peter in an acapella freestyle battle. The hi-jinks never end!


Touring While Black with Brandon Jenkins (Complex TV)

With the recent arrests of Migos and Nelly while on the road, Peter, Dharmic, and recurring guest Brandon "Jinx" Jenkins (of Complex TV) talked about the risks associated with "touring while black" and what it means to be surrounded by the right people.

All White Everything: A White Rapper Discussion With Dan Isenberg (Nah Righ

With Action Bronson's "Mr. Wonderful" in stores now and doing well commercially, we decided to discuss the topic of white rappers and what it means to be a white rapper in 2015. We were joined in the conversation by Dan Isenberg (aka Stan Ipcus) and Dana Arbib of A Peace Treaty. We talked about what it means to be a white rapper and how YouTube and social media has opened doors that were previously closed off to rappers who might not have fit stereotypical molds. We also named as many...



This Wednesday we were joined by hip-hop renaissance man J-Zone. We got him to talk about how he's stayed ahead of the industry by diversifying his portfolio by being everything from a journalist to sound-tracking documentaries (and the occasional porn flick). We also asked him to weigh in on the jury verdict regarding the copyright infringement case on Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines." And that's just a couple of things we discussed.

Shomi Patwary, Brandon "Jinx" Jenkins, and Emily Oberg joined us on NW3RADIO. Jinx and Shomi talked about their recent trips to Detroit (Jinx hanging out with Big Sean and Shomi shooting for PRhyme). Shomi also brought up the time Drake reached out to him on Myspace to become his manager, and why Soulja Boy prevented the creation of a "We Made It" video. We also talked about traveling and dealing with border security. Peter has been detained at a Canadian border, but nothing can top DJ...

DJ Treats & Three Is The Magic Number w/ Leather Corduroys (Joey Purp & Kam

This week's episode of NW3RADIO came at a particularly heavy time for us, as earlier we received word that Dust La Rock, co-founder of Fool's Gold Records, had passed away. As such, we paid tribute to the legendary art director throughout the night. Our good friend DJ Treats came by to talk with us about his Kickstarter campaign to create Ratking-inspired MTA Cards and some of the current events in the rap world, most of which involve the current state of radio. Are celebrated...

We talked about what it's like to run across New York City's bridges, the origins of the Bridge Runners crew, and lots more. Plus, we had a lively discussion about the departure of Cipha Sounds from Hot 97 and the Migos making a grandiose gesture out of their $1000 donation.

Brent Rollins (of Complex Magazine) - May 7

Early on in our #NW3RADIO run, Peter and I got to sit down with the legendary Brent Rollins. We talked to him about his come up from doing logos for Spike Lee to his current work at the top of the game over at Complex. He also kicked some crazy knowledge: like that time Mark Ronson used to write for Ego Trip. Must listen
