We kick off this episode with Riffa’s story of how a homeless guy in Austin, Texas created a rough situation for him and his brother. With age comes maturity and with Austin comes bums.
Recently producer Sonny Digital, the man behind some dope tracks as well as the XXL Freshmen 2017 Cyphers, told the world that he’s going to start a producer union. Is this something that Hip Hop needs? We talk about this and what up and coming producers have to deal with as well as the rappers who rhyme on the beats. We also talk about a few ways producers can make a name for themselves.

DJ Screw’s birthday passed recently and we revisit his legacy and influence in Southern rap as well as the rap game as a whole. We talk about what it would be like if DJ Screw we still alive and what his sound would have evolved to. Keeping it Texas, Bun B announced that he has a new album on the way and Big K.R.I.T. will be the musical director on the album. We discussed what’s to come and why Bun B is a legend.
