Two Record Collectors Walk Into a Bar…

Professor, writer, record collector, DJ and proprietor of the always-wonderful blog Soul Sides (and STOP SMILING contributor), Oliver Wang, sat down for an enlightening chat with Chairman Mao, co-founder of ego trip magazine and a legendary record collector and music scholar in his own right. From the sousaphone to racism to the Beatles to the new ego trip show, Miss Rap Supreme, the interview is not only a humorous look into the mind of one of hip-hop’s most impressive voices, but sums up much of how many of us aging hip-hop fans feel these days. (Bonus: Check out two of the other ego trip collective, Brent Rolling and Gabriel Alvarez, on the Sound of Young America podcast here).
