In episode three of Kasting Cuzzins, the broskis revisit their second stab at rap, a loose riff on “Today Was a Good Day.” They talk about the track’s primary sample (Mungo Jerry’s “In the Summertime”), the evolution of their lyrical skills, and how horrorcore shaped KC’s early sound. They also discuss far better tracks by Paul Wall and the recently #cancelled T.I.
We did it! We made it to episode 2. If you joined us last time, you know that today we’ll be analyzing our first ever raps, immortalized in the song “Nerdrotic” (and later the “Nerdrotic Redux”). Listen as we groan about how awful our rhymes were! Hear firsthand the beat that Chris aptly describes as “OK”! And nod along as we share our thoughts on much better rapper 2Chainz!
Welcome to Kasting Cuzzins! In this special introductory episode, we explore the unlikely origins of Detroit rap crew Kissing Cuzzins. You’ll meet your hosts, recovering white rappers Alex and Chris, and discover the early tracks that put them on the road to recording their first rhymes. There will be self-deprecation… and there will be props. (More of the former than the latter.) And you know what, guys? We’ll have a whole heck of a bunch of laughs too. Join us?
