In this week’s episode, the Cuzzins dissect a seminal KC track, the melancholic “Swollen Condolences.” Well-deserved shout-outs are doled to Antihelix, Copywrite and Natalie Portman. Also included: A crucial discussion about when it’s appropriate to utilize movie dialog in your beatmaking.
The Cuzzins welcome longtime friend and fair weather KC fan Biscuit to the show. It’s a no-holds-barred conversation about hip-hop production, early 2000s pop punk and whether the similarly named Kissin’ Cousins restaurant in St. Petersburg, FL is any good. Oh, and at some point the Biscuit-inspired track “The Tale of Jimmy Biscuits” is played and dissected. Though it’s admittedly kind of an afterthought. Enjoy?
Awww, it’s KC’s first rap collab! In a very special episode, the Cuzzins look back at multiple tracks they did featuring German hip-hop enthusiast Nico aka Nervous. The beats are hot and the rhymes are multilingual. Also: The boys get some new rap aliases! It’s the perfect recipe for a gute Zeit. (That means “good time”… we think.)
The depravity continues… In their sixth episode, the Cuzzins talk about the next in a series of horrorcore-tinged tracks, “Another Not in the Line.” There’s much ado about the unnecessarily long intro and the grimy beat it resolves into… Plus lines like “I’m a blip on a radar, a twinkle on a gaydar” and “No I’m not Hawkeye but my aim is true.” Also discussed: Biggie, Tobacco and that time in ’96 when a young KC visited a Bone Thugz landmark.
