Jazz Man.

For nearly two decades, Terrace Martin’s been the bridging gap of jazz and rap. Thanks to his work on Kendrick Lamar’s critically-acclaimed To Pimp A Butterfly, the Los Angeles native is up for several Grammy Awards including album of the year. While putting the finishing touches on his upcoming project Velvet Portraits, Terrace speaks on his relationship with Kendrick and TDE, Jay Leno, YG, Diane Warren, Tru Life and so much more.

    hip hop podcasts are the new dj clue tapes

    • BIGGER Fishes 2 Cook

      is that a good or bad thing?

      • Gargemels tracksuit

        it’s neither, just a parallel.

        • BIGGER Fishes 2 Cook

          apart from rap radar, combat jack, and juan epstein, are they other good hiphop podcasts you’d suggest? I wanna check out something else. thanks

          • Gargemels tracksuit

            Microphone Check, It’s The Real, Bodega Boys, Lip Service. They all vary depending on industry access and inebriation.

            Yeh I definitely fuck with Microphone Check. I need to check out the rest, but LipService? Really? I’ve only listened to the episode with 50 but if that counts as Hip Hop then so is Brilliant Idiots. That shit is hilarious sometimes.

          • BIGGER Fishes 2 Cook

            Thanks, man. I’ve never heard of them. Will check them out. I think Lip Service is the one with Angela Yee. Gotta be some relationship/gossip-type show but I give them all a try.

          • BIGGER Fishes 2 Cook

            I did listen to Microphone Check. The hosts are quieter/more laidback than other Hip-Hop podcast hosts I’m accustomed to.
            Came to find out the male host is Ali from ATCQ, and the female co-host is a white girl. They almost never curse, which is kind of unusual for a hip-hop show. The girl does drop an f-bomb every now and then but Ali doesn’t.
            It takes some getting used to but I dug it, and subscribed.
            Thanks a bunch, Mr Gargemels tracksuits.

            It’s a very awkward ass podcast at times. But I think Ali brings a unique perspective and is unafraid to take a perspective. He’ll take it back to the foundation which is a nice contrast to others.

    Yo B.Dot what’s up with this Bevel thing, can we buy stocks? Tell Tristan they need that shit in the Navy Exchanges on the military bases because you have to shave everyday. In boot camp they made us shave 2 to 3 three times a day and that fucked up the majority of young black men faces. Just give me 5% of the profits and we good.

    • Sina Mailer Daemon Djavadkhani

      Whoah!

  • Sina Mailer Daemon Djavadkhani

    Awesome ! Excited for this! Glad you guys are getting more producers!

  • Sina Mailer Daemon Djavadkhani

    I’m so glad ‘butterfly’ is getting its just due- I really enjoyed the stories about his dad, college experience, the stories with Tru in Cali + NY, and Tribe being about ‘the bass with jazz on top’. What he was saying about musicality depth regardless of genre too, that’s what I focused with the Rock edge on Ronin 1.

  • go deeper

    [at 75:00] He’s right about Drake….he needs to go deeper
