Rap Radar On Juan Epstein

Screen Shot 2013-10-16 at 8.19.22 AM

90 minute Interview. 50 Minute Video?

Lord knows when this will be released in full, but here’s a quick preview on what’s expected to come. Wait for it.

UPDATE: At last, the full audio is here. The epic debate. Suscribe to all of the podcast series here.

For the troll in you. Elliott returned to the show (he was our first guest way back when!) and brought his underling, B. Dot, who successfully trolled Ebro into a screaming match. Aside from all of that there is some good conversation. A different but very interesting Juan Ep.

UPDATE : Full footage of interview below.

  • CHUBBY

    OOOOOOOHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!! SHIT!

  • CanYouAllHearMe

    Brian and Elliott are helping kill the culture. Glad Brian got punked and that bitch Elliott just sat there wetting himself.

    If they cared so much they would promote and break artists on here instead of saying we dont care about the smaller guys jay z and kanye are more important.

  • Coney

    Somebody finally put B Dot in his place lmaooooo. I hear what B Dot was trying to say but Ebro was right on point.

    • nujerz

      Ebro was bullshitting…that nigga is just as responisble if not more so than B Dot for mainstream hiphop fucked up as it is.

  • Tropper

    B.Dot = Randy Acker
    E.Bro = Dame Dash

    • Duh Dunt Duh Dunt

      word.

    • The King

      B.Dot = Kevin liles

      E.Bro = Dame Dash

      (Backstage)

  • xxx

    tell em why you mad son

  • HeyBuddy

    Yo!!!!!! That is some heat poppin off in there!

    But it also sheds some light too the average citizen. Are they just an advertising site, or are they really into their music? Begs the question, and now the debate! Lol

  • JuJu

    EBRO

  • brollya

    damnnnnnnnn!!!!!!!!! where can i find dis at and wen does it drop……finally rapradar is being exposed on posting every rick ross song and makin it number 1 wen aint nobody lookin at it….. da shit the people been sayin for lik a year is finally comin to the light

  • Da Business

    Damn Ebro, don’t do that man like that.

  • http://Blackprestige.blogspot.com/ Black Prestige

    Ebro is mad because we’re hip about Payola?………..so he’s accusing Rap Radar of doing the same thing…..his accusation isn’t too far-fetched…..crabs in a barrel mentality

  • LOL

    ny radio is garbage, and part of ny rap is on it’s death bead because of HOT 97 & 105 because all they do is play BULLSHIT. real hip hop is not on the radio.

  • Levvi

    This left my jaw on the floor! So much passion. Can’t wait for the whole thing.

  • NEKDOT

    its just a snippet and RAP RADAR posted them getting it in. Ebro is not really making a point all he doing is talking loud

    • ThaRealHater

      Moron. The whole interview aint even out yet. WTF do u know?

    • 0 Really?

      right. RA RA RA! If I talk louder than you I win! It’s true southern artists pay promotional companies to push there singles and mixtapes to radio and blogs. for this they pay a fee to the company and the company pays the djs and blogs. FACT. My cousin is a southern artist and he was saying how he had to put aside 10,000 for radio. I said “thats illegal though bro” to which he laughed and told me to grow up he said “thats how everyone is doing it down here. Nobody gon talk about it but you gotta pay to play”
      the shit circulates down there and gets hot til it rises to new york and holier than thou hot 97 will fuckin play it too and yall dumbasses were the only ones not getting payed to play garbage. save hip hop one soapbox at a time.

  • NEKDOT

    rap radar makes advertising money. SO DOES EVERY hot 97 site..and their parent company.

  • cashrulzcream

    Its true, that these so call blogs are fucking up the hip hop culture, as well radio too, they cant point the finger. Rap Radar had so much Drake ads on their site you would think Drake owns the site, as well if Eminem releases any thing its the same. Do you think they will do the same for underground artist…….Hell No! Seems to me they only look out for the ones who winning.Ebro is right…who the fuck is B Dot, he dont do shit for hip hop culture, who the fuck still rock du rags in public nowadays.People please support real Hip Hop, and none of that R&B..rap and bullshit!

  • 7thEmerson

    As wild as that was, Hot 97 does that too, as well as most other platforms, so this isnt new info really. I just wish it wasn’t so blatant.

  • NotoriousRambo

    ITS LIKE DEMOCRATS (BLOGS) & REPUBLICANS(RADIO) EACH BLAMING EACH OTHER BUT DO THE SAME THING BEHIND THE SCENES THEY ALL TAKE CHECKS SMH BUT HONESTLY WHO LISTENS TO THE RADIO ANYMORE ITS THE SAME SHIT PLAYED OVER AN OVER AN OVER POWER 105 & HOT97 DONT DO ANYTHING FOR NEW YORK FUCK WHAT YOU HEARD

  • Duh Dunt Duh Dunt

    Ebro kinda told the truth. The problem is Bdot doesn’t have the balls to get from under YN yet. YN doesn’t care either way… he can suck dick with or without Bdot there clean the nut up. But to Bdots credit… he’s correct and so is Ebro.

  • nujerz

And you wanna hate on RR cause its not illegal to take money from an artist.. He sound more mad about the fact that he CANT take money than he is made at the fact that RR does take the money.. Big retarded lookin mother fucker on some high horse like he got some dignity nigga you had miley cyrus up in there KISSIN THE CRACK OF HER ASS and did everything short of calling her your “white queen”.. fuckin chump..

  • brza

    this almost seems more of a battle of egos over who broke what artist etc. waiting on that top 10 Hip Hop journalist list after this one

  • B. Dot Sucks

    B.Dot Sucks!!!

  • wow

    Ebro told combat Jack this monthes ago!

  • Faay_d

    This guy has got to be kidding me!

    Since when was talking really loud and over your guest become a part of interviewing?

    All I got from this clip was a very angry radio personnel pointing the finger at another man (whether or not their guilty of the same crime we don’t know as the entier thing seems like a set up).

    If ebro is so frustrated why not have an actual discussion with YN? Seeing as his the actual heart of RR

    Such a Let Down!

  • base

    B dot got sunned and he aint do anything lol J Dilla is not top 10 wtf! Dude is a clown 2 say the least

  • YOU CAN’T KILL ME!

    Wow, B. Dot got bitched right off the back. He is Yellow Niggers pet.

  • LuxuryRap

    iHeart Radio “Music You Should Know” = PAYOLA

  • Deya

    CTHAGOD would of said stfu ebro

  • YeeZus

    2dopeboyz supply a constant stream of so called “underground” artists…why dont yall just go visit that site and be done with all this bullshit from RR and 97

  • CP

    I dont like eBro and was team RR, but I can see where BDot would annoy the shit outta someone…

  • LuxuryRap

    and i wish you guys would stop saying females aren’t in to real hip hop. i know a lot about hip hop than some of these guys out here…

  • DaTruthhhhh

    Niggas don’t like the Da Truth ,Mad respect B dot

  • LoL

    who the fuck is ebro

  • kermit806

    lol ebro….you mad bro?

  • ebro’s mic

    got sonned son. Fuck ebro though, if he wants respect he can’t be snapping like that. b dot reaching though, he calling all these people out on how they put bread on the table for their families…ofcourse niggas gonna get salty.

  • Starlion

    juan ep is corny as fuck
    these media guys man sometimes…

  • Truth Thompson

    Truth: Neither the DJ or RR want to promote new talent. Shit doesn’t make them money until it pops off for new artists, or until they pay someone to play it (what b.dot was getting at). Who’s to say who’s responsibility it is to go out and find new talent. This is an argument between two men who are guilty of the same shit.

    ./ MICHEAL DOUGLAS

  • CabriniGreeny

    LOL!!!! That’s the most funniest shit I’ve seen/heard in minute. B.Dot, you went into someone’s home (HOT 97) disrespectfully and E. Bro checked you like a boss should.

  • YOU CAN’T KILL ME!

    REMEMBER WHEN THIS SITE WAS NICKNAMED ROSS RADAR?

  • payroll

    Cypha Sounds looks real interested on what is going on around him.

  • The King

    you can’t make an accusation that could get someone fired and not expect to get checked. Ebro had every right to put b.dot in his place. Dry snitching ass nigga.

  • Michael Ibbett

    I’m watching this shit in the room while my girl is sleeping, trying to have it quiet. Then tht fuckin laugh. Screaching! She’s not waking up just keeps violently tossing fast as fuck everytime the laugh screaches

  • sincereakilleez

  • AllDay_HipHop

  • Guest

    yn should not have stayed so quiet when your man is getting blasted into a corner, dissapointed

  • Sean Mahoney

    Love how RR have got a picture of BDot looking as menacing and Ebro looking as vulnerable as possible. Ridiculous.

  • Wavpin

    Ebro is right!

  • Top5iveAlive

  • cashcow223

    WOOOOOOW BDOT HOW U LET A GROWN MAN TEL U “FUK YALL NIGGAS” TO UR FACE #SONNED

  • jhdiplomaticpower

    Smh, all these MF’s have a price.

  • Dashing28

    Ebro yelling was the least important, but most sensational element of the conversation, so I’m not gonna comment on it….
    I applaud B.Dot for reiterating sentiments he said earlier about breaking artists and it’s definitely true that radio still has more influence, inherently, then a blog can. We’d all like to see underground NY artists shine.
    That said, it’s still a bit hypocritical for RR folks to say that while they themselves are guilty of the same things. It’s a rarity to see posts from folks who aren’t well established acts. They themselves wait until acts graduate from 2Dopeboyz, Nahright, and DX before they’re “hot” enough to give them a look on most occasions. And that’s they’re perogative as well, but it strikes me as disengenious to criticize Hot97 for doing the same thing. Particularly, his argument against Rosenberg, which essentially boil down to “I personally don’t like the kinds of underground artists you choose to promote on your Sunday night show.” He mentioned Rosenberg playing Earl. Earl is not mainstream, but he’s got a much bigger following than someone like a 360, who might have a more mainstream sound, but his music isn’t better, more interesting, or more original than Earl’s. And he hasn’t made a hit record yet. That’s why his posts get such a caustic response because he’s getting a look and isn’t bringing anything new to the table. (Meanwhile, a year ago I was telling folks to post Chance the Rapper and include his 10 day mixtape on the list for best of the year and cats were looking at me like I was crazy.) So I personally don’t agree with the artists YOU choose to promote B. Dot. It’s the same thing, except that Hot 97 has several other platforms to promote artists, including Who’s Next (which included 360), BOTB, and their online platforms.

  • Mihir

    Fuck CRWN man, I ‘d rather pay to watch this shit live lol

  • HipHopFeeling

    BDot is complaining about Hot97 not breaking records…which I fully agree on, but than again, like Ebro explained, that’s hard to do with the way things work on a national, syndicated level. RapRadar however, has all the freedom they want & they are barely breaking records. Like Bdot said himself in the video; when they post a ‘breakthrough’ artist, other sites already posted their songs 3 years prior…
    How about you guys invest in the culture and help make records & artists popular enough for Hot97 to play without taking a risk…you guys need to take the risks, because you can…

  • Rgeezy

    Elliott Wilson only cares about money.

    He will sit there and tell you how hip-hop and real Drake is, which just throws his whole credibility out the window.

    • Bol

      The TIs pay his bills.

  • High-DEF92
  • Kevace

    If I Was B Dot I was not posting this real talk

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/ViLLyViLLz?feature=mhee $pruce Yee

    Everybody know’s 360 is your guy b.dot… cut it out nigga

  • LisaMaria

    Elliot!! We would pay to see our favorite artist interviewed by humpy dumpy! It has absolutely nothing to do with you! I saw you @ the J. Cole Crwn and you were such a jerk. I wish you weren’t so full of yourself. Its sooo disappointing.

  • da90s

    That yellow fool is a bitch. he sat there and watched his “patna” get shitted on. then had the nerve to tell his “patna” to apologize to the bay area fool. this site is lost if that yellow nigga runs it. you don’t rep the culture YN, you rape it.

  • Anthony Monarrez

    Where Mac Diesels response lol?

  • BLACK EBERT

    B.DOT SPOKE THE TRUTH ABOUT RADIO….TRUTH HURTS !!! PERIOD & I LIKE EBRO TOO, BUT HE TOOK IT TOO FAR WITH THAT EMOTIONAL COMMENT ABOUT YN PUTTING HIM ON, NOT NECESSARY & OFF TOPIC. BUT GLAD HE APOLOGIZED.

    GREAT INTERVIEW. REAL CONVOS >

    that nigga B.Dot breathes the truth but nigga need to learn when to spit it

  • action fox

    great argument

  • Realness 93

    Ebro Darden is NOTHING but a HACK.
    Remember his state of NYC Hip-Hop comments? Minor vs Major leagues?
    http://thecombatjackshow.com/show/the-ebro-darden-interview/#.UmAYqOXD_IU

    If this guy had the mindset he does and had the helm of Hot in the 90’s, we would have never heard 75% of what we did.
    Why don’t the mixshow DJ’s break New York hip-hop? Mixshow, late night, the time you would typically hear this music. More local NYC Hip-Hop? It’s out there! I hear it on satellite radio! And there’s some great shit!
    Remember when a Mixxmaster weekend would be going on and you’d have to break out the tapes and press record for one DJ’s set? Those days are gone. All the mix DJ’s sound the same, playing the same shit over and over. Screaming over each record, horns every 5 minutes, fancy sweepers, and nothing but shameless self-promotion for not the music but themselves.
    Oh and the mixes sound like constant train wrecks.
    Where’s DJ Wonder, DJ Revolution, Mr. Choc and those that can actually mix? Oh yeah, they’re on SiriusXM.
    B-Dot’s on to something here

  • guest

    b dot is a fuckin idiot. the fact that this douche is behind this website makes me want to stop visiting the site

  • Dave Michaels

    the sqeaky wheel gets the oil.
