Shea Serrano, the mastermind behind The Rap Year Book and a former staff writer for Grantland (RIP), joins the show to talk about growing up in Texas, becoming a writer out of financial desperation, learning how to use commas, finding his voice as a sports and hip hop writer, the joys of working for Grantland, the expectations for Kanye West’s next album and why he can’t stand J. Cole.

Special thanks to Ronald Jenkees for letting us use “Try The Bass” as the podcast intro music. Check out his music on iTunes.
