The Hypemen Podcast, The Lost Episodes: Hannibal Buress


News Image

Way.....way....way....back in the day (aka 2010), when the entire concept of a rap podcast was still in its infancy, there was the Hypemen podcast. Up until the last episode in July of 2011, the Rosenthal brothers and Jensen Karp delivered almost 50 episodes of incredibly nerdy, incredibly funny in-depth interviews, and we were there to lend a helping hand. 

But then, like an Amazonian rainforest reclaiming a once great Mayan civilization, the Hypemen was lost to the fog of time. iTunes stopped carrying the podcast, we had to switch servers and our streams died, and just like that, some seriously great hip-hop interviews were digitally buried.

Thankfully, I worked some server magic and managed to recover every episode, the guys were down to revive the podcast, and here we are. Over the next few weeks I'll be re-issueing some of the Hypemen's best episodes, and up next I had to go with the hilarious Hannibal Buress. Even in the few years since this was recorded Hannibal's become one of the bigger new names in comedy (and hip-hop).

We're talking J. Cole, comedy stage names, the Gathering of the Juggalos, MIMS' second single, Crucial Conflict, Ke$ha's performance on SNL, the differences between SNL and 30 Rock, Kat Stacks, banned Sega CD games and more. Enjoy...
