The refreshing intelligent hip hop podcast

The interviews are not the stereotypical superficial fluff. Every episode is a substantive conversation that I find very relatable and motivational. Happy to find this podcast and see that Israel and Insomniac, after so many years, still keep it real in a field where few do. Much love to Insomniac ✌️
