This week the fellas are joined at the virtual table for the first segment by hip-hop writer Abe Beame who published a major piece this week ranking all of the original albums that received coveted 5-mic ratings in The Source magazine. Here's a link to the piece https://www.passionweiss.com/2020/09/29/a-definitive-ranking-of-all-the-original-5-mic-albums-in-the-source/ we have a lively discussion about the hip-hop album canon, and the unrepeatable circumstances of the heyday of hip-hop journalism.

In the second segment we interview rapper, author, and label head MF Grimm. It was a distinct pleasure to talk to Grimm about his past as a child actor, his streetwise rap style, his autobiographical graphic novel, and much more.
