After a brief hiatus/retreat, Sonny and Rick are back and ready to rock with a new podcast intro song.

This episode is a very Brooklyn-themed one, as they take a deep look back at the iconic Hip Hop album, and duo – Mos Def & Talib Kweli are Black Star. They reflect on the bars and careers of Yasiin Bey and Talib Kweli, 21 years later, and speak on the creative evolution of all artists.

Sonny goes as far as using a Kobe analogy for Mos Def/Yasiin Bey – which gets Rick to admit his true feelings for the Mamba Mentality.
