    ‘The Six’ is a reference to the Canadian city of Toronto. Modern day Toronto was formed by the amalgamation of the six municipalities of East York, Etobicoke, North York, Scarborough, York, and the former city of Toronto in 1998. Also Toronto’s two area codes 416, 467.

    Sorrry I meant 647

  3. I can’t wait for Pacman to tell me I got everything wrong and misrepresented all Canadians… I’m glad people seem to be liking the episode and are putting up with my foul mouth.

    Them’s a couple a brave white boys.

  5.   Good show.  I am a fan of rap but I am unwilling to wade through the sea of S\*\*t to get to the gold.  Took some notes for future listens, definitely.  

    My only problem with the episode is you didn’t find the true Boom! of the topic:  Who is your favorite rapper, and if you were stuck on a desert island with them, what game would you play with them?

    I don’t know if anyone has realised I had vanished, I have returned after some really crap weeks (Take it from me, getting mugged attacked and hospitalised, is not that fun)

    But I would to send a huge (and a little emotional) thank you to all of BRB Podcasters for getting me smiling this past week.

    I didn’t realise I’d been in hospital so long , but when someone told me that since I’d gone in a WHOLE episode of the boomshow had come out, I was like “okay, I’ve been lying on my back too much, time to get outside and live again”

    So thank you, and may you never have two episodes on back to back weeks, thats how I keep track of time 🙂

  7. A bit lttp with my comments but then I was so surprised that we got two new Boom shows this month and that one of them talks about nothing but Hip Hop, it took me some time to recover! happy Am guessing you have now all listened to Compton now and would be interested to hear your opinions.

    Also, for the record, I was a much bigger fan of 2001 that I was of The Chronic. I had liked some individual songs from the world of hip hop/rap previously but I think Black Sunday and The Score were the first albums I truly fell in love with.

    Also, I really, really don’t like Eminem. I use to but then seeing him live changed my mind. His albums got weaker over time too but I went to see the Anger Management Tour. Every other act that day was great, Eminem was crap. A real lifeless, soulless performance that dragged on for less than an hour (bearing in mind he was also backed up by D12 at the time) he then did a magic trick (an actual magic trick with crappy props and everything) and then literally disappeared off stage. I have never seen so many people booing someone doing an encore! hmmm There were rumours that this leg of the tour took place a day after the Amsterdam leg of the tour, but never checked if that was true and would think that this is the type of BS his PR company may have spread around afterwards to protect his reputation hmmm I have literally never bought any of his music since this day. (I broke this slightly for Calm Down, as aside from being a Busta fan thought this was the best thing Eminem had done by quite a distance in about 10 years)

    Also, just for the record the best hip hop concert/gig/live act I ever saw was Wyclef Jean (previously of The Fugees) Aside from being an awesome performer, he also went into the crowd, (including upstairs) had a whole massive jam session with each band member and the DJ having their own solo section, played a load of unreleased material for the first time and did some live improvisation with members of the crowd – the kid doing all The Rock’s bits from It Doesn’t Matter was a personal highlight! happy But then my opinion of this night may have been influenced by blagging our way back stage after the show and then getting invited back to their after party back at their hotel. I can honestly say that Wyclef was really nice, welcoming and friendly too! thumb

    Good point about the topic. If I could be stranded in the hood with two hos and one rapper, my favorite game is Dr. Mario.

    Dude, you’re clearly the thuggiest thug that listens to our show. Well, actually, getting mugged doesn’t really make you thug, does it? Naw, it does, and you’re straight gangster, take it from me; I grew up in Southern California. 

    We hope you’re recovering well, and sorry to hear about your brush with the hood. If you ever see them again, tell them you know a couple of 7 foot white Mormons that are huge Beastie Boy fans and know where they live.

    Holy crap, Tim! This is a lot for me to digest. I thought I knew you before, but clearly I was wrong. 

    Also, I was overwhelmed by Eminem’s performance that I saw live last year as well. I feel like his drug problem (and its aftermath) may have negatively influenced his ability to carry a live crowd, or maybe he never really could. I just can’t get past the fact that he is, in my opinion, the greatest rapper that ever lived, and I really like to hear him spit. There are a few albums in the middle of his career that I kind of disregard, but for me, he’s still got it.

    I can’t wait to talk about Compton, as well as the movie, on our inevitable episode two of BRB BoomBap or whatever we’re not going to officially call it.
