I think there's a difference b/w alternative hip-hop, as in rappers w/something to say other than money, cash, hoes, and alternatives to hip-hop, as in totally different genres of music. Episode 13, even w/the largest stretch of the imagination, isn't hip-hop at all. It's punk/alternative rock, which is fine, except on a hip-hop podcast. Kudos on all the other eps, though, for giving shine to a lot of indie hip-hop folks.
I'd never heard of Alpha Pup Records before stumbling upon this podcast, but I’m glad that I found them. This is one of the best podcasts on the net, because it mixes the best songs by the best artists on Alpha Pup Records into15 minutes of abstract hip-hop par excellence. The Grouch, Busdriver, and AWOL ONE. Who are these guys and why had I never run across them before? They are talented, gifted MCs who rhyme over tight beats produced by Daddy Kev, edIT, and Paris Zax. Alpha Pup also produces for the former members of cult hip-hop legends, Freestyle Fellowship. Good stuff all around. Subscribe if you like hip-hop but are sick of the recent trends. This podcast is the tonic that cures you.
