We Made Netflix! w/ Brian Kidd (Ep. 11)

WE’RE BACK! Coming off our brief hiatus, we jump into the insane number of things that happened since Episode 10, including Rapsody and NC hip-hop in general on NETFLIX(!!) and the arrival of the new Kooley High album, “Never Come Down.” We’re also talking to mixing engineer Brian Kidd, who is a living testament to the power of music. Not only did an early 2000’s Consequence mixtape, and the song “I See Now,” featuring Kanye West and Little Brother, strengthen his resolve to one day work in music, it literally inspired him to move to North Carolina to see what 9th Wonder and the rest of the Justus League was getting up to. In our interview with Brian, he talks about working for free when you’re starting out, shooting his shot on Twitter when he first arrived in NC, his thoughts on the new Kooley High album, and much more. ———— NEW ON THE SITE THIS WEEK!
