It truly was all fun and games (plus some musical insight) when Freddie Gibbs stopped by to play the game show Special Education. The Gary, Indiana rapper spoke with Special about the song that he thinks defines him and even hilariously belted out some Isley Brothers when asked one of the signature questions of the game, what he would perform at an old folks home. When it came to the other signature question of Special Education, what he would perform for 3rd graders, Gibbs stood his ground that his music isn’t for kids and joked about his daughter listening to his music and empowering him by dapping him up in the morning and telling him “get that paper daddy!”. But the jokes didn’t end there, Freddie even poked fun at one of his hometown heroes Joe Jackson, calling him his favorite person he’s worked with.
As a guest on the game show Special Education, DJ Mustard battled it out with Special over his favorite beat he’s made, favorite person he’s worked with, most fun song to make, longest project to make, and favorite line someone’s spit on one of his beats. In the process he details the project he’s not proud of and how long YG’s “My Krazy Life” really took.

Los Angeles rapper, producer, Hopsin sits down with Cypress Moreno for a rare in-depth Young California Radio interview. The ordinarily enigmatic emcee explained what his new record label Undercover Prodigy means to him, his plans to grow it bigger than his former label, and how it originally began as an idea for a clothing line in 2014. Hopsin expressed how his riff with former Funk Volume business partner Dame Ritter inspired the content for his new record, “Ill Mind of Hopsin 8”, and why he chose to voice his opinion on the matter publicly. The ‘Pound Syndrome’ rapper described how it felt to finally be heard on one of LA’s most popular radio stations, Power 106 and stated he hopes to be heard on radio more regularly. As Hopsin enters this new chapter in his career, he talks about being more self-aware, shaking the stigma of being seen solely as a dark, wicked, rapper, and evolving as an artist. Hopsin also speaks on enhancing his image, style, production and live show to impress his loyal fans.
