Episode 80: Rap Traxx

We kind of phoned it in for this one. Connection issues and a lack of planning resulting in what you’ll hear this week, but we did get a nice conversation in about a series of rap compilations that were released in the late 80’s and early 90’s: RAP TRAXX ONE THROUGH FIVE! Come and hear the discussion about the albums and the music on them now!
