Episode 260 – We’ve Got 5 On It

Happy Throwback Thursday, everyone! After 260 episodes of hip hop news, guests, mistakes, technical difficulties, and hours upon hours of fun….your favorite podcast turns 5 years old! In the past 5 years we have have honed our skills and streamlined our show so that it would flow the same way each time. This week, we had a show planned that would do just that. And then….then we realized it was our 5th anniversary and we would rather reflect on 5 years with the Posse than a regimented schedule. To help us celebrate, we bring you new music from friends of the show Positive K and MC Lyte “I’m Still Not Havin’ It“. We, of course, have a One and Done (D-Shot), a Record of the Week (Foxy Brown “Ill Na Na“), and a very special Bill Reads Lyrics. We wouldn’t COMPLETELY change the flow of the show. Hopefully you will all enjoy our little celebration, and share it with your friends.
