—Episode 14 - The Put On
Back after a long hiatus — Willy’s brought on by “work”, Marko’s by “playing Wave Race 64 on a G4” — and joined by frienditor Willie [sic] Luckman of Powerhouse Books, Champale delves into hip-hop’s world of torch-passing: the put-ons that create potentially strange lineages. Did it ever occur to you that French Montana’s existence and popularity is, in many ways, a direct product of Biggie’s success? It will be painfully clear to you after listening to the 14th crisp and refreshing episode of Champale.
Call us the RAP GAME MICHAEL POLLAN if you want, because we happen to think that local connections and flavors lead to better outcomes when one successful rapper passes the torch to his friend, and lets him lay down that bag of weed he has been carrying so dutifully. The Internet, maybe, has changed this a bit. Has it helped? Does this inevitably lead to a conversation about Riff Raff? The answers to all this, and more (including a tear-jerking Mike Daisey-esque retraction from Willy) on this episode.
Join us, as we crack open some high-end mini bottles of booze and talk semi-informedly about all this and more.
