    Episode 3 — Ratchet

    True, I mistated by saying brolic is just a mispronunciation, i wasn't intending that post to put anyone "hood" down, i grew up in the projects myself and remember when people started saying it. I never said it was dumb. Thanks for explaining it better than I did. Good point on gully too, and although i know its not a "source" per se, urbandictionary points out the sf2 theory as where it came into recent popular usage from too. That's just how I remember it first being used as well, but if i choose to mistrust my memory, at least i'm not pulling it out of thin air. Indian for street makes sense too, assuming by way of Jamaican slang. I'm a huge dork, thanks. I just thought they were interesting etymologies to point out since they were mentioned on this episode, and wanted to add how I had experienced them being used in NY in the 90s. Love the show btw, getting better each week.

    Episode 3 — Ratchet

    id say that's the more traditional slang use of ratchet. BACK IN MY DAY, gun barz.

    Episode 3 — Ratchet

    brolic and gully come from hood mispronunciations of broly from dbz and guile from street fighter.. ratchet feels like its being used as some hood ass mispronunciation of "wretched".. it'll always mean gun to me, more than wrench even.. generational?
  5. didn't expect to hear a POS shoutout on here, i hope he recovers soon.. any chance when he does, to get him on the show?

    Episode 1 — Fanute The Coupe

    This was great, cant wait to hear some of the more current episodes! Can we get Nocan's opinion on the current state of battle rap at some point? This was a pretty big year so far in terms of a change in the landscape. Looking forward to hearing more!
  7. i agree that ninja/nilla is fucking wack. lazy and trite. As a nice white person who makes hip hop music, I felt I had to chime in. I don't personally use that word, in any form, but people can do what they want. It's a question of authenticity in life. also, wish these were longer! I think a weekly, longer form show might be a better format to actually have time to discuss some of these issues, right now it feels very sparse, but I know this will all get ironed out soon. Keep it up! also wanted to point out that i laughed at the kulap shoutout, THATS A COOL-APP
  8. edited, for not realizing the lifestyle/music/comedy categories were already there. Still think this is diluting the earwolf brand but I guess I can't complain.
