Episode 2 – Hip Hop & Faith, Vol 1

On this episode, you’ll hear my boring ass chatting with two people much more interesting than I am.

Manchild Manchild is one half of the seminal indie hip hop group, Mars Ill. By day, he is Greg Owens, father of like 35 kids, representative of a fantastic craft brewery, and awesome dude. By night, he is your favorite Altanta based emceee. Having been around for quite awhile, Manchild has some interesting insight on the scene. He also explains that there’s a new Mars Ill album on the horizon! After you hear him on the podcast, you can check out one of his latest albums below:

James Gardin is a Michigan emcee that has the soul of a poet. His latest track, “Gold”, is included in the episode and his most recent release, a jazzy hip hop album that’s hard to not enjoy, was reviewed on this site not too long ago. Most of his tunes are available via his Bandcamp, so check them out!

NOTES: I namedrop CookBook on this podcast like we’re buds… to be fair we talk on Twitter and email and stuff but I’ve never met him face to face. Also, I reference the Lecrae track with Big KRIT, which is actually NOT on his current album, but oh well… I never claimed to be an expert on the Lecrae.

Justin has been running websites since his first Geocities site in 1994, but only did he ever start covering anything of substance years later. After he stopped regularly running local concerts in Northern NJ and the greater Philly area, he knew he needed to step up his writing game if he expected to continue to get free music to listen to. He writes regularly here and at Cinapse, as well as contributing to a few other sites on occasion. He likes music, film, the Philadelphia Eagles, the 76ers, talking about Criminal Justice, reading Intelligence Report, and his family... not in that order. His beautiful wife is far more talented than he is and his kids far more adorable... and crazy.
