 The First Juan Ep of 2016 !!! | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:22:15

No guests to start off the year (well except Laura and Juanyto) so we decided to do something different We spent 80 minutes playing awesome random hip hop (mostly from the 90s) and talking about it. So enjoy the lesson or stroll down memory lane depending on how deep you go! I think you’re going to love it….let’s see!

 Buckwild on Juan Epstein! | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 0:59:20

There is only one guy I know of who has produced for Jay, BIG, Nas, Pun, and Big L. His name is Buckwild and he is a cornerstone of DITC and one of the best and most underrated producers of all time. You know we had to close out the year strong! Enjoy Hip Hop nerds!

 Phonte Stops by Juan Epstein! | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:27:44

This episode has a lot. Ciph tells a great story about flying on Dave Chappelle’s plane a couple of weeks ago. Then we call my wife to convince her that buying a new place is a good idea. Then Phonte stops by to talk about his new work, breaking up with Little Brother, and tells a great Kanye story.

 Phife, Ali, and Jarobi on Juan Epstein !!! | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 0:53:35

Well at first I was disappointed that Q=Tip didn’t show up for this (it was early) but as Ciph pointed out, we have had Tip before. It was amazing to hear about the inception of Tribe and the creation of People’s Instinctive Travels from the other members of ATCQ. Next year when Low End Theory gets celebrated, we will have Tip on with them. This had a few “Juan Ep” gem moments that will blow your mind !

 Faith Newman on Juan Ep !!! | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:01:49

Faith is one of the most important behind the scenes people of all time. She also is first generation hip hop nerd. She also happens to have a wonderful personality and incredible memory. Enjoy the stories about Slick Rick, Rick Ruben, Nas, and much more. Juan Ep for life!

 Ebro on Juan Epstein Episode 1 !!! | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:07:21

Finally our brother Ebro came by to talk about his entire upbringing and radio career and I won’t front — it’s a hell of a story. Not to mention we did it on Ciph’s first time back in Hot 97 since leaving months ago. Enjoy!

 Stretch and Bobbito Juan Epstein!!!! | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:52:51

The title speaks for itself…..

 OC Drops Jewelz (Get It??) on Juan Epstein! | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:46:02

I was geeked for this one. OC is one of my favorite 90s legends and I have never heard him talk. Ciph and I were lucky enough to get his story including his relationship with Jay-Z (deeper than you might realize), being MC Serch’s other protege with Nas, how him and Big L were actually just starting a group together when L passed, and how Time’s Up was originally a Pharoahe song that he took for himself. Before O came through, Laura Stylez came by to be hilarious and adorable as per usual. Enjoy!

 Lord Digga Talks Masta Ace and Ready to Die on Juan Ep!! | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:16:20

Don’t know Lord Digga? You slippin son. Digga was of course a key part of the INC in Masta Ace INC and then went on to produce multiple songs on Ready to Die and have an underground hit with “My Flow is Tight” on Game Records. Well he came by to clear the air about things Ace has said about their break up and tell us about working with BIG. Enjoy!

 Consequence’s History of A Tribe Called Quest!! | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:28:09

Quence is doing the rounds promoting some new dope music so we decided to make this visit different and make it completely about his time with Tribe. The story starts with Q-Tip just being cousin Jon in Queens and goes all the way to the story of the fallout between Tip and Phife. Rap nerds rejoice!

 A-Trak on Juan Ep!! | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:19:17

I know I always say this but this one is so special. A-Trak is truly one of us and we have known him for years but finally got to hear his entire story from being a DMC World champion at 15 to touring the world with Kanye West. Enjoy!
