A great story for hip-hop, can't wait to hear more!
This is absolutely fabulous. Gimlet have done it again. They have made a truly authentic show about the HipHop industry and its intricacies.
Combat Jack shouldn't be narrating, his voice annoys me. Other than that, great story that was well put together.
