Was not mentally prepared to hear so much non-soundcloud rap tonight. Going pretty hard here Jim P.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:46am
Jim the Poet:

That stopped because I was trying to cue a record using Tidal while KRS-One was playing on the PC. Sorry about that, KRS-One.

You should give yourself a (Jim the Poet miscue re-mix) to the first one the playlist. It would look tight in my Favorites list.

How about Jim the Poet's song wedged in between Betty Wright and Public Enemy in my Favorites. Thats something else.

Its _______ hearing Trump references from pre-2015 songs. Can't put my finger on the word but it holds more entertainment value. Most recently it was Rah Digga with "Get loot like that Trump bitch, Ivana" lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:06am

mb: "Nobody Speak" by DJ Shadow/Run the Jewels has the line "Flame your crew quicker than Trump fucks his youngest."
morris from dd:

Great show, thanks for filling, Bill. I didn't get what happened to Joe D. but wish him well come back soon.

Joe's a little under the weather not in a worrisome way. Be back next week.

Speaking of humble guys how about Tekashi 6ix9ine having 163,846,399 YouTube views in a week for his new video. Blows my mind.
Avatar 5:15am

Super psyched for new Run the Jewels. Saw Josh Homme is on a track.

@mb:So that's how he got the $200 grand he wanted to donate to charity?

@Billy Jam:Keep strong.Take care.Hello all.

Doug in JC:

Well, I certainly wasn't planning on getting up this early
Avatar 5:24am

@?: The only thing i know about him is he was a snitch and "people" watched his vid many millions of times. I watched 3 times because its not a bad song and i found alot of entertainment value from the way he opens the video waving a middle finger and smiling for the camera with an iced out grill. I know nothing of his charity work.
Avatar 5:26am

A Rockabilly Bastid!
ami ad:

@mb:I'm with you,not my cup of tea,never watched anything by him.Guess he doesn't have a mask on if you can see his shiny grillz.Did see he tried to make a donation recently that the charity Did not accept.

Beastie Boys. Awesome.
