Originally inspired by the Joe Rogan Experience you'll be subject to many guests from completely different walks of life, as well as the possibility of some more famous names. Expect episodes with other artists to include on-the-spot Music Cyphers, whether it be rap, singing, or instrumental.
There will also be breakdowns of major UFC events, album reviews of upcoming artists, and future contests.
