Our review of the last 12 episodes. Great conversation altogether too. Listen and enjoy.
A diss that has come and gone but music that would continue to be available to us. Ruggedman and 9ice threw lyrical punches at each other many years ago and some of the songs that helped create are discussed on this episode of the podcast. Chinaydu, a rapper affiliated with Ruggedman tapped from The Whispers' big hit "And The Beat Goes On" as 9ice told his side of the story on "Once Bitten, Twice Shy" before calling on Seriki to help with "Talk, I am Listening". Disclaimer: The story dateline about the situation between Ruggedman and 9ice may not have been told accurately in the discussion. We focused more on the samples. Listen, Subscribe and Share.
