I won't BS you, a lot of things went wrong during this edition of HHS. McFly didn't call in until over halfway through, and for some reason I was unable to patch him in. To make matters worse my internet connection died, so I lost the switchboard on BlogTalk and had to cut the show short by a couple minutes. Nevertheless new songs by Asher Roth, Evidence, Termanology and Wordsmith all made the cut and we had a good live audience for the show! Join us every Wednesday night at 10:00 PM EST, 9 Central via blogtalkradio.com/angrymarks and if you miss the live show be sure to look for the replay here on RapReviews.com or via our sponsor mrobandthecancer.com. Enjoy!
