Get ride of bazemore.
Everything is great except for Bazemore. He speaks like he didn’t make it out of middle school. Plus he always changes the tone of every conversation into something way more serious than it needs to be. it’s supposed to be a light hearted fun podcast right? Then Don’t ask bazamore a question. Unless you want a dumb answer and the tone of the podcast to go south.
Love these 3! Vince is going to be great on tv, when he's done playing in ten years.
Would give a five star but their podcast with Trae and John was cringe because of whoever kept obnoxiously whistling into the mic. Seriously ? I don’t listen to the podcast to hear somebody whistle while I’m trying to listen to what the topic of the conversation is.
