Talked about the Mayweather vs Ortiz fight, Fabolous vs. Ray J, the late Troy Davis vs. The Legal System and Jayo Felony vs. Fox News. We had J.Cole on the chopping block for blend it or bump it and some caramel vodka in the stash box this week too!
Mookie Jones. An artist we never even heard about until we saw him during Big K.R.I.T.'s Return Of 4 Eva tour. He was one of the opening acts along with Smoke DZA, Freddie Gibbs and Jackie Chain. I remember Mookie took the stage and eventually got into his lead single from his debut album Tuskeegee titled "Pineapple Express", "See it smell it buy it sell it", the hook was etched in my brain for the night, and many days to follow. The song was hot as hell. After he left the stage Phro pulled him aside and asked him "yo let us buy you a drink homie, we need to get a quick interview" to which Mookie replied "hell yeah, grab me a Grand Marnier with a twist".

Phro was out but that didn't stop us from having a great show! We had Jesse the ghost writer from Rap Rebirth for a quick interview, we jumped in the Stash Box, checked out DJ Quik's The Book of David for Blend It or Bump It and got into a heated debate over the Beastie Boys.
So we talked about it last episode, the Return of 4Eva tour was coming to Michigan and we couldn't miss it. We knew we were going to see Big K.R.I.T., Smoke DZA, Jackie Chain and Freddie Gibbs, but we didn't hear about Mookie Jones. So after seing him put on a hell of a set, we had to take a moment to get to know Mookie, what he's about and his music. So a sip of the Grand Marnier and a few pulls later we did just that. Here's how it went down.
