Relevant Content is a new bi-weekly podcast for Aux.Out. in which hosts Will Ryan (Beats Per Minute, Diffuser) and Philip Cosores (Director of Aux.Out.) discuss topical issues with guest industry experts and personalities. Sometimes there is yelling. Always there is talking over one another. And, hopefully, there is a greater understanding of the complexities of the music world that one mind alone may not be able to fully capture in an essay.

This week Will and Phil talk about rap music, admittedly not their area of strength, and contemplate the significance and ramifications of Kendrick Lamar’s much-praised verse from Big Sean’s “Control”. Joining in the conversation are Consequence of Sound founder (aka their boss) Alex Young and LA Weekly/Passion of the Weiss writer Max Bell.
