This Week in Hype: Death by 9-to-5, Indie Hip-Hop Guide With El Prez & More

Posted by Nathan S. on 11/15/13 | Filed under Downloads, This Week in Hype, Podcasts, El Prez

It's been seven days since the last "This Week in Hype" podcast and we're all still alive to listen to another "This Week in Hype" podcast. That's pretty dope. Let's celebrate with another "This Week in Hype" podcast.

For the latest edition, I dig into "Death by 9 to 5" and get autobiographical about my journey from shitty day jobs to ridiculously making a living off the rap interwebs, bring on El Prez to talk about how to survive, and succeed, in indie hip-hop and more. 

Discussed This Week:  

* As always, shout out to RefinedHype Nation member Tino for that dope theme song.
* Shout out to our sponsors IM King. Answer this week's trivia question and I'll send you some free gear. 
* I dig deep into Yoh's "Death by 9 to 5" article and break down how I escaped day job drudgery to run the rap interwebs. You can do it too. No, seriously, you can.    
* The dope "Demos" documentary is in stores now. I celebrate my bringing on one of the documentaries figures, El Prez, to talk about the DOs and DONTs of suceeding in indie hip-hop.   
* Much love to El Prez for coming on. You can follow him here and check out his PrezSport project with Jansport J.
* Today's closing track, El Prez' "Same King".

*tries reverse psychology* You should never subscribe to "This Week in Hype" on iTunes ever. It will easily be the worst decision you've ever mad. You'll regret it. Immediately.
