Can't believe this only has 322 subscribers on Castbox. The Business of Hype is like no other podcast I've ever heard. With every episode I am inspired a little bit more to follow my dreams. Thank you very much HypeBeast, Jeff Staple, and everyone else involved. You have a fan for life, I appreciate what you all do very much. As silly as it sounds, finding this podcast has changed my life. Love from Canada.

Being a 23 year old man in this world of street culture, I gotta say, a lot of these cats just don't get it. Not all of course but there are so many people in my age group that don't want to work hard enough or don't have any ambition at all. We need the knowledge from the old cats. Good or bad, so we can make the best decisions for the future, from the information we have today.
