Billy!

History is made every day. Thankfully, Bill Adler has been around long enough to preserve most of it. As the first publicist for Def Jam Records, Bill’s been collecting hip-hop photographs and memorabilia for the over 30 years. Recently, he sold a majority of his collection to the Smithsonian’s newly minted National Museum of African American History and Culture. Here, Bill speaks on his pioneering tenure, collection, Lyor Cohen, Russell Simmons, LL Cool J, Public Enemy, and more. Subscribe HERE.

  • el jim chapo guzman

    Another culture vulture that raped the game for all it’s worth.

    • MR. UNDI$PUTED THE MOGUL

      Every day you show us all just how mentally defective your brain is!!!! Back in the 80’s no one had a clue how big HIP HOP/Rap was going to be or if it would even last so how would that make him a “Culture Vulture”?!?! A Culture Vulture would be someone in the last 15 year’s behind a desk somewhere talking about “this rap thing is making lots of $$$ for everyone involved, we need to figure out how to get in to it.” Not someone who wasn’t even sure their check wasn’t going to bounce but was dedicated to seeing the genre grow!!!! Just like the definition of a Hating Haitian Homosexual is el jim chapo guzman.

      • el jim chapo guzman

        let’s go get some donuts mogul and call it the day

  • Real Talk

    Rap radar in bed with all the culture vultures

    • Brian B.Dot™ Miller

      Where, i don’t see any.

      • PREMERE

        Keep doing your thing, this site is straight hip hop. Yall cover a broad spectrum, yall cater to diffrent lanes of hip hop. The commenters on this site tho, they lacking………

      • Judge Joe Dredd

        I see them all over this site in posts regarding your unbearable podcasts. Must be the slave in you, when you worship the crackas who have profited off the culture without adding anything of value. But continuously disrespect and undermine the coloured men and women who are the true talent and architects of the culture. All black so called Hip Hop journalists or radio hosts are guilty of this. #Facts, facts, facts.

  • Room 222

    Rap Radar is the best Hip-Hop podcast.

    Keep up the good work.

    • THE REAL mac DIESEL

      COCK BLOWA!!!!

        • PREMERE

          These side show freaks are played out and lame, these cats rant like little chicks when its the first time of the drip drip………

      • Brian B.Dot™ Miller

        Every comment you make, there’s always a dick or sperm reference.

        Highly questionable.

        • PREMERE

          They hating b.dot, they corny wanna be internet celeberties. That troll game weak and over……..

    • SaniAbacha

      Said no one ever. They had the shot and blew it.

      • Brian B.Dot™ Miller

        The Molly kicking in, eh?

      • Room 222

        Imo, Rap Radar is better than say Drink Champs. RR is more professional.

        • SaniAbacha

          Sorry guys. “Professional?” Professional is on CNBC. They’re not a bunch of analysts FFS. They’re interviewing people from rap’s history talking about salacious and juicy details of past events. The fact that they are being “professional” about it is why people clearly prefer Drink Champs over a short period of time. I warned them to work on their dull personalities but alas!

          • Rns

            For real. This is hip-hop. Fuck professionalism

          • Brian B.Dot™ Miller

            Yeah, you’re definitely retarded

          • Rns

            Who u think u talking to, b.dot? One of these trolls? Dont get it confused, schoolboy. I’ll smack the shit out of u in real life and you wont do jack shit about it. How about that for professionalism

          • Brian B.Dot™ Miller

            Bwhahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

          • Rns

            Yeah nigga. just laugh. cause we both know u aint really built like that, schoolboy

          • Brian B.Dot™ Miller

            Alas, you’re here!

            Respect the art. that that’s why favorite artists sits with me and leaves saying, “this is the best interview i’ve ever had”.

            I’ll leave the silly and rudimentary questions to other people.

          • SaniAbacha

            I meant to diss. I wasn’t discrediting professionalism. I was merely bringing to your attention the scope of your audience. But you know them better than I do so I digress.

          • Room 222

            I prefer Rap Radar’s interviewing style. They actually do their homework and ask intelligent questions.

            Well, I guess we’re going to have to agree to disagree.

          • SaniAbacha

            I understand the logic but I am only speaking in terms of catching fish who only prefer swimming in muddy waters. Most people want to listen to drunk guys act stupid but the real reason people prefer Drink Champs is because Nore is merely having fun and from that point people get priceless hip hop stories that are usually enlightening on the game as a whole. Neither Bdot nor Elliot give any juicy gist about their run ins with hip hop greats. Either they are trying to be too politically correct or they don’t have many stories to tell. Either way, to each his own.
