S07 E12 ’tis I, Your Guy, Errick Greenlee

In this episode, Handsome Bane circles the wagons with friends B-Hyphen, Mike Lam and ShowinMadLov as they lift him up. It’s finally happened, HB’s dad passed away. Seeing Henry Lawson in a casket was only the second time HB ever saw his dad so…yeah it’s some pretty raw emotion in this one. Rest assured Abel Magwich of this podcast shit is already in therapy. But the boys came through in the clutch to help convey those raw emotions in this pod.

Thank you to all the people who sent love to Bane or threw up a prayer on his behalf. Love, trust, and also belief!

S07 E06 Gangsta Wrap

A slightly inebriated Handsome Bane takes you back to his days as a middle school student in the 90s. The topic, as you may be able to guess from the title of the episode, is Gangsta Rap. We don’t get deep into the politics of yesteryear. But looking back, we’re not sure if any of us NEEDED to have access to this.

The songs of the day are:

Ice Cube You Know How We Do it

Eazy E Real Muthafukkin Gz

Warren G and Nate Dogg Regulate
