In order to put together an acceptable tribute show to the fallen veteran Queens MC, there was no time for “cowardly hearts and straight up shook ones.” How does Pay Me No Mind “Keep It Thoro” you might ask? I got some words in with Brooklyn, New York’s Skyzoo (the Writer) to assist with properly honoring dun.
Skyzoo also weighs (starting @ 1:28:20) in on his beloved New York Knicks, the state of the culture, his upcoming projects on and off the mic, his thoughts on Kendrick Lamar’s DAMN and more.
Boxing is always a major part of PMNM, so press play and listen to self-proclaimed “Valedictorian” of the 154-lb weight class, Justin “The Chosen One” DeLoach (17-1, 9 KOs). Jip speaks candidly (starting @ 1:05:39) on Andre Ward’s recent 8th RD stoppage of Sergey Kovalev, the merit of the Mayweather versus McGregor mega-event, and all of the big names at super welterweight – he’s eyeing Hurd-Trout closely. The Augusta, Georgia native has already outgrown his USBA belt he won back in February!
This episode’s other guests include NBA writer Colby Giacubeno (@ColbyGHoops) breaking down (starting @ 25:42) a strong starting 5 worth of NBA topics. Giacubeno covers hoops around the DMV, the area where Markelle Fultz developed his game, and he points out an interesting compliment about Fultz’s make-up. Last but certainly not least, Tha Boxing Voice contributor Adam Lee (@AdamTBV) joins the show (@ 47:49) to recap this week’s Adrien Broner versus Mikey Garcia presser held in NYC. Adam also had some thoughts on next Friday’s Robert Easter Jr. title defense versus Denis Shafikov.
