G Yamazawa's Breakout Year, plus The Sinopsis! (Ep. 13)

On the surface, Kooley High and G Yamazawa are simply two of the best hip-hop acts to emerge from the Raleigh-Durham area. But look closer, and they represent two distinct elements of the NC hip-hop scene — G embodying the area's constant winds of change, Kooley High  representing the enduring spirit of the Little Brother area. In less than two weeks, they play Lincoln Theatre in Raleigh together, but not before G hits the stage at Cat's Cradle on Dumbfoundead's Yikes! Tour, which he has been a part of for a number of west coast dates already this year. Ahead of his appearance on the pod next week, we talk about his whirlwind last 12 months starting with the "North Cack" video, then interview The Sinopsis about all things Kooley High — the new album's title, 9th Wonder's involvement, and which NBA team Kooley High most resembles. It's a fun one. Enjoy!
