Thanks for supporting Fresh Era! We can tell it's helping with that C.H.D.S. flare-up of yours and know you're fiending for another episode. We decided to skip this week in observation of Memorial Day (plus, we wanted to get super drunk at our friend's BBQ). However, since Smooth B from Nice & Smooth will be our next episode, we will leave you with this trailer performed by the living legend himself. Don't forget to hit the subscribe button and give us a review wherever you get your podcasts. Until next week, my fellow Golden Era Gladiators!
Funkdoobiest brought a lighter side to the Soul Assassin's sound. Where House of Pain was about raw aggression and Cypress Hill, the weed and the streets, Funkdoobiest used DJ Muggs' and Lethal's production to kick rapid-fire punchlines about everything from Pac Man to Porno (Son may or may not have even starred in a couple). Come on an audio-tour into the life of Son-Doobie and the less-talked-about-yet-equally-important, Tomahawk Funk to find out how the group came together, what it's like on tour with House of Pain, and most importantly, how to stage dive off a three-story speaker stack.Get jumped in to the Stupid Fly Gang at
Roderick "Chip-Fu" Roachford is a Brooklyn born, multi-styled MC and one third of The Fu-Schnickens - the legendary hip-hop trio who took the 90's hip-hop scene by storm when they dropped "F.U. Don't Take It Personal", and Chip-Fu was the driving force behind their success. In a matter of two years, he wrote a gold album, two gold singles, wrote songs for CB4 and The Addams Family Values, and mentored a young, super-tall MC, who you may have heard of, named Shaquille O'Neal. Come find out the motivation behind Chip-Fu's drive to be a rap superstar as well as why you should only allow a select few in your circle.Join the Stupid Fly community at
Marvin “Young MC” Young is a British transplant who relocated to Queens, NYC, before the birth of hip-hop.

It was there, in his dorm room, where he was discovered and began his journey into the career of hip hop. Come learn about his life before “Bust A Move,” what it was like to have written the first rap single to go Platinum, and be the first rapper to have received a televised Grammy.Come join the Stupid Fly community at
Dres, born Andres Titus, is a native New Yorker who was raised in Queens. He was one half of Black Sheep - the 90's hip-hop group who is responsible for one of the most legendary albums in hip-hop history - A Wolf In Sheep's Clothing.
