Ah geez. We’re nearing the end of the season… perhaps the end of an era? Either way, in today’s Kast we’re discussing the second to last track on our debut rap album, “We’ll Burn That Bridge When We Come To It.” We get into Chris’ sick Sarah Palin diss… Alex’s rhymes about Tears for Fears… and the time the X-Ecutioners implied we were racist. Join us?
Welcome back for another action-packed episode of Kasting Cuzzins. In this week’s episode (#30!) we are picking apart a real clunker – the melancholic “It’s Alright,” which features the German rapper Nervous. But don’t blame him! As you’ll soon discover, the real issues with this song can be traced down to Chris’ butt rhymes, Alex’s bad guitar-playing and a whooole lotta bad white rap. In other words: It’s classic KC baby! Join us?
Are you ready for some toxic nerd culture raps? To paraphrase Stefon, this week’s track has everything: References to Final Fantasy… Duke Nukem… Dungeons & Dragons… weird sex stuff… and more! In other words? It’s classic KC. And if that weren’t enough, Alex dusts off his Eminem impression while Chris drives the conversation – once again – toward the Big Buford. Join us?
Ok, let us apologize upfront. We were supposed to do an episode about our pre-recession anti-corporate anthem “IDDQD.” And we did that. But for some reason we also spent a lot of time talking about the Big Buford. Like… A LOT. So, hopefully you dig your rhymes with a side of curly fries and a banana shake. Join us?
(For real, this is a fun one. No cap.)
There’s no time for games or game plans… This week, we’re reviewing the pinnacle of our rap career, a cartoonish heist track aptly titled “The Heist.” Along the way we explore some more famous tales of thievery by the Notorious B.I.G., Slick Rick, Ghostface Killah and more.
To aid in the discussion, we’re joined by our good friend (and unofficial KC historian) Brendan Roney. He poses some interesting queries and even spills some decade-old beef (blegh!). Join us?
