Hype Men Podcast ep.1 w/ Jean Grae

blame it on Shake August 25, 2010

For those that aren’t aware, the Rosenthal brothers have joined forces with Jensen Karp for a new hip hop comedy podcast. And if you’ve caught any of the ItsTheReal sketches you know you’re in for some hilarious antics.

Hype Men is like a tree house built of metaphors and Jay-Z lyrics; it’s a talk amongst friends that’ll branch out into Best Week Ever territory; a place to start off discussing Cam’ron’s oeuvre and end up talking about Sesame Street’s The Count, with the two topics somehow tying together in a very seven degrees of Kevin Bacon game-type way.

In this week’s episode, Jean Grae joins the group to discuss BBQ’n with Lil Mama, run-ins with Tyrese, Slo’Down vs. Nelly, Talib Kweli’s left field collab with Gucci Mane, Nicki Minaj as the Highlander, Michael J. Fox’s bucket list and more.
