Joe Budden Announces New Podcast On Rosenberg & Cipha Sounds’ ‘Juan Epstein’

Juan Epstein

Joe Budden was the special guest on Cipha Sounds and Rosenberg‘s Juan Epstein podcast this week (along with ME!), and had an announcement about a podcast of his own. Joey and I will be launching our own weekly podcast this week…which I think we named ‘I’ll Name This Show Later With Joe Budden.’ Stay tuned!

Aside from the announcement, we also talked about Joey selling stolen computers as a teenager, drugs he did back in the day, our friendship and why we’d NEVER have sex (gross,) All-Star plans and more. Listen up below.

NEss Nitty x HOt 97_LifeIsTremendez

Congratulations are in order for my girl Ness Nitty! The Girl Code star/radio personality has officially joined the Hot 97 team, leaving behind a 4-year tenure on-air at Bay Area radio station, Wild 94.9.

Nessa comes in the midst of tons of changes at the iconic radio station, with new DJs recently added, a new music director (TT Torrez,) a new program director (following former PD Ebro Darden‘s resignation in 2014 to focus on his morning show duties,) Angie Martinez‘s departure, Mister Cee‘s departure…the list goes on. Nessa will take over Angie‘s former 3-7pm slot, while the show’s host in the interim, Cipha Sounds, will now “transition into other on-air responsibilities,” per the press release.

“Working for Hot 97 is a dream come true!” Nessa said in a statement. “I want to thank Jimmy Steal, Rick Cummings and Deon for this amazing opportunity, as well as my mentor, Cat Collins. New York, let’s go!”

Marisa Mendez On Juan Epstein’s 2014 Finale

Marisa Mendez x Peter Rosenberg

I accidentally walked in on Cipha Sounds and Rosenberg while they were recording the 2014 finale of their Juan Epstein podcast, so of course I had to add a few gems. In between talks of Iggy Azalea vs. Q-Tip/the world, police brutality and fan questions, I discussed my recent adventures in the bedroom and other lovely things of that nature.

HBK Breaks Down The “New Age” Groupie…Are You That Girl?

HBK at Hot 97

On Wednesday afternoon, the Bay invaded NYC as IAMSU! stopped by Hot 97 with Kool John and P-Lo to chop it up with Cipha Sounds. The HBK guys were on an off day from the “Under The Influence” tour that they’re currently on, a 22-city nationwide trek alongside fellow HBK member Sage The Gemini, as well as Wiz Khalifa, Ty Dolla $ign, Mack Wilds, Rich Homie Quan and Jeezy.

After Suzy 6speed discussed life on the road and adjusting to his ever-growing success, P-Lo and Kool John chimed in when the topic of ladies came up, particularly those that they come across on tour. Ever the enlightened one, Kool Daddy dropped a dime for the listeners and shed some light on the “new age groupie.” Upon further review, I think I fall into this category. (Joking obviously but my photos certainly reflect that, LMAO!)

(Photos + Video) Los Angeles, CA with Cipha Sounds & Rosenberg


Not that I needed a reason to head to my second home, but being that Cipha and Drewski had already planned this trip – I decided to tag along. My first day there I hit Six Flags Magic Mountain with my homie JP and then linked with Cipha to head over to the UCB Theater where he guest-hosted that night’s improv show. I got to meet Zach Woods from The Office and Lauren Lapkus from Orange Is The New Black! So dope!

After that, we hit the Young California HQ with DJ Carisma and Abby De La Rosa, and then Belasco for Wiz’s show with Ty Dolla $ign…and they had the kid on the red carpet! No idea what I was talking about. LOL!
