Ep.22: The Incredible Two-Man Posse Cut

“Brevity is the soul of wit” – Polonius

“I don’t want no one-minute man” – Missy Elliott

In this week’s Kast, we look back at the aptly-titled “Minute-Long Rap Song” from our debut album, We’ll Burn That Bridge When We Come To It. We dissect what may be our meanest beat… and ponder whether it would’ve served as solid ground for other rappers. Along the way, we also talk about some of our favorite posse cuts and – for some reason – spend way too long discussing disgraced actor Jeffrey Jones. Join us?

Bonus Convo: Wait, Why Are They Talking About Weezer?

We’ve said it time and time again… This is a RAP podcast. And yet, apparently we didn’t get the memo, uh, from ourselves. Say it ain’t so! Because in this short bonus conversation – cut from episode 21 – we can’t stop talking about pop rock mainstays Weezer.

Ep.21: Keefer Madness

It’s time to roll up some of that ol’ “wacky tobaccy” because in today’s show we’re reviewing the KC drug anthem “Intervention.” All eyes are on Chris (aka Keef Herbin, Obscure the Model Student, etc.) as we pick apart his rhymes and the crazy true story that inspired them. We also lend an ear to the Proxy remix of the track and play a snippet of its Violent Femmes-sampling sequel, “The Reckoning.” Join us?

Ep.20: Is It Pronounced “Nicolas Cahj” or “Nicolas Cage”?

We’re off to the races! It’s our 20th episode, officially, and the third ep of our season-long exploration of KC’s first album, We’ll Burn That Bridge When We Come To It. What a time to be alive…

Today we look at the track “I’m Like the Following,” which dares to ask… what’s the correct way to pronounced Nicolas Cage’s last name? We also discuss whether the bands White Town and Black Kids are problematic. (“Your Woman” is a banger!)

Plus: An inexplicable dive into the group’s love of… Dashboard Confessional? Ew.
