Happy Throwback Thursday, everyone! This week, the boys talk about the legend of Top Shelf, and they bring it to you as the Record of the Week. We flash back to that time our favorite Wu affiliate decided to take a swan dive into the asphalt…..sans his man junk. We have a Bill Reads Lyrics that you do NOT want to miss. What else? Let’s listen.
Happy Throwback Thursday, everyone! This week, you get the show, but you don’t get the pants! Okay, unless you are a Jimmy Fallon fan, or a Patron, you have no idea why that statement matters. That doesn’t matter, though. What DOES matter is this week’s episode. We have everything from a Fresh in Peace to Bill reading about, well, you have to listen for that part. So… let’s do just that, let’s listen.
Happy Throwback Thursday, everyone! This week, the boys start their recording session when they are usually finishing it. When you’re in your late 40s, “late” comes a lot earlier than it used to. But like true professionals, the show went on….late into the night and early into the morning, and we did it for you. So check out what we have in store this week.
Happy Throwback Thursday, everyone! This week we do a lil bit of this, a lil bit of that, and even a lil bit of people named Lil. We celebrate the 50th birthday of a pioneer in Black History who gets no recognition; Franklin Armstrong. This is the last week to enter our lip sync contest, get your entries in before it’s too late! We also bring you new music from a classic artist this week. Who is it? Let’s listen!
Happy Throwback Thursday, everyone! Our One and Done comes to us from our man Fox, and our Record of the Week takes us into the realm of “alternative hip hop”. Yes, we are old, but the Icy Hot reference doesn’t have anything to do with our aches and pains. It has everything to do with A Legend Reborn! Is that the Legend of Billie Jean? No, it is the legend of Yay-Yay and the only knife that will cut you with precision. Still lost? Let us help you. It’s easy…..let’s listen.
Happy Throwback Thursday, everyone! This week, our Facebook live video went horribly wrong, but that don’t befront me…long as I get my podcast on Thursday. What do we have on tap for you this week? Well, it’s almost Summertime in the LBC, which may explain the stupid list we bring you…it’s gotta be the heat. Oh, and more Dre than you can shake a vagina at! What are we talking about? Let’s listen.
Happy Throwback Thursday, everyone! What in the hell does this picture have to do with this episode? We aren’t a car show, we aren’t sponsored by Pontiac (because they no longer exist), so what is it? If you go to the “Hit Us Up” button on the website and tell me the answer, maybe you will win something from the prize box! Anyway, this week Bill is on pain killers and muscle relaxers…. and that makes for a great Bill Reads Lyrics. Don’t believe me? Let’s listen.
Happy Throwback Thursday, everyone! The title of this week’s show may seem a bit obscure, but if you are a Patron, you know exactly what the title is all about. Also, if you happened to catch our Facebook Live (which we do every Monday night), you know. Anyone else? It’s now just a title. World renowned hip hop artist Askem dropped by our live stream this week. What else do you need to know about this week’s show? Let’s listen.
Happy Throwback Thursday, everyone! This week Bill gets worried that Jamie has died….or worse, won’t make it to record! Have no fear, all is well, and we have another exciting episode for you! What do we have on tap this week? Let’s listen.

When Big Daddy Kane and a Tiny Desk collide, the world pays attention. The lyrical legend, the man known as Dark Gable, Big Daddy Kane, whatever moniker you assign him, he is still one of the greatest of all time. If you’ve ever seen Big Daddy Kane outside of an MTV video you know that he is one of the coolest dudes out there. Not just “Smooth Operator cool”, but genuine. He seems like a guy that you could just sit down, have a beer, and bullshit with for hours. Yes, Kane, this is an unofficial invitation for you to come on the Mr. Throwback Thursday podcast for an interview….but that is not our only purpose here.
Big Daddy Kane is one of our classic hip hop legends. I said it. CLASSIC HIP HOP LEGEND. Nowhere did I say “old” anything. The minute Kane picks up the mic, the word “old” is the furthest thing from your mind. To see him perform on stage with the same energy and moves that he had 30 years ago, the word “old” doesn’t come to mind. What does come to mind….is the word classic. Everything about Kane is just that; classic. There is nothing that we can say here, that hasn’t been said. So, why don’t you just sit back, relax, and listen to the man that told you…… it’s hard being the Kane.
“I just rip shop, flip-top, and watch MC’s get dropped As I manifest in hip-hop Rhymes I construct are tough like a Tonka truck And just like lightnin’ they struck Down on all the toy MC’s that annoy That’s how I build and destroy The poetic printer, rough rhyme inventor With a groove so smooth you can’t help but get into So I’m advisin’ competition to flee ‘Cause I can bake an MC like Chef Boyardee Holdin’ my own on the microphone ‘Cause I break bones just like sticks and stones So let it rain let it rain as I put em in pain God damn, it’s hard bein’ the Kane! ”
