This week the Stay Hatin’ rap mafia is joined by the funniest rapper who never recorded for Rap-A-Lot, the semi-famous producer, DJ, author, blogger and ign’ant rap connoisseur J-Zone. J-Zone and the crew discuss which social media platform is best for pimpin’, which trend was worse, rap-rock or hip-house, and speculate about why there are no more rap duos, angry rappers or intentionally funny rappers. Also, they play some new and old raps.

J-Zone’s website, govillaingo.com, where you can cop his excellent memoir, Root for the Villain: Rap, Bullshit and a Celebration of Failure and sample his awesome Gator$-N-Fur$ mixes. The latest G-N-F mixshow, a collection of unsafe sex raps and ludicrous conversations between J-Zone and Chief Chinchilla, is here.
J-Zone’s blog for egotripland, where he’s equally at home compiling lists of ign’ant raps, speculating what the NWA break-up might have looked like if it occurred on twitter and suggesting songs for Rick Ross to cover. (S/O to egotrip’s Chairman Mao, who put us in touch with J-Zone for this episode.)
The piece where a 20 year-old NPR intern attempts to listen to Public Enemy’s It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back and concludes that he’d rather listen to Drake is here.
An outstanding overview of Cash Money’s output in the years before Juvenile, B.G. and Lil Wayne became national rap stars.
