No Sleep Til Sudbury takes a complete left turn in
Episode 10 as my close pal Kent Bailey drops by to give
me a tutorial on the history of Hip Hop. Even if he was a
suburban white kid, dude knows his stuff.
Listen along as Bailey discusses his traumatic
introduction to music, his resemblance to Canadian rapper
Kish, the Funky Drummer sampling phenomenon, and so much
more. He even namechecks a Slayer band member! That's my boy.
