In ASAP RAPS, turntablist p.stoops and rapper Mayor Wertz attempt to write rap songs quickly. Very quickly. Some might say “too quickly” or “maybe you should stop." But there’s no time for critics in this race for the rhymes. During the first week of this bi-weekly audio journey, the duo set out to make a beat in under an hour from a randomly selected record. The other week, they write rhymes based on the Twitter feed of whoever’s on the cover of People Magazine. In the end, pure rap gold.

What a fun concept. Good listen. I’ve enjoyed these guys on different podcasts and it’s good to have them join forces on their own thing.
Listen To This ASAP!
Though I am catching up, I am enjoying listening to two talented recording artists collaborate on a tune they create on air. The music is awesome as the conversations, and it has helped me with my own creative processes as well. I hope people listen, because its not just your usual two-white-guys-jerkin'-off-to-their-own-voices podcast, this podcast has something unique and original as the music they are creating.
