Over the years, you’ve seen Andreas Hale‘s work here at the DopeHouse (and surely all over the internets) with his quality, highly-opinionated and thought-provoking writing. From Kendrick Lamar Is The Best Emcee Of The Digital Era to My Frustrating 20-Year Love/Hate Relationship With Nasir Jones, his pen game has had folks talking well before this site’s birth in 2007.

Now, he and his co-host Kel Dansby have linked up with the Loud Speakers Network (home of The Combat Jack Show, Jeff Weiss and Nocando’s Shots Fired, etc) to present their new podcast, THE CORNER – a boxing, MMA and pro wrestling discussion from a hip hop perspective.
