As artists we often tell ourselves that the solution to our problems is money.

Great show!!! I was buggin when Blueprint broke down how DOOM was jacking hiphop basslines for songs…. I did recognize most of the melodic samples before hand like Jeffrey Osbourne…. Illogica kinda pissed me cuz he couldn’t fathom DOOM coming up with the persona bit w/o reading 48 Laws of Power… hell RZA, GZA & Kool Keith had already done it so it wasn’t even new when DOOM did it… I’ve seen ppl say he got the idea from Kool Keith…. yeah gotta finish this next MF DOOM inspired ep of LR Radio..

This was a good show although I don’t think they should let a 17 year old from Britain off the hook for not knowing domestic hiphop culture like that….
