Welcome to Episode 8 of The Fix! This week we welcome the Professional RAP FAN and one-third of already legendary hip-hop group Run the Jewels, Trackstar the DJ. Trackstar has been in the game for a minute, with over 150 mixtapes already under his belt. He’s been a busy dude touring around the world with Killer Mike and El-P as RTJ, hosting a weekly show on Shade 45, and managing his clothing line RAP FAN – yet he took the time to sit down with us before their show in Toronto. Tune in as as we chat about the typical plethora of topics you’re used to on the pod ranging from his come up, linking up with Killer Mike, their first show in Toronto and the hilarious story that came out of it. Trackstar also gives us some hot takes on Drizzy, Free smoke in every city, the surprisingly unknown production juggernaut Earththone III, why the blog days were so important for him, collaborating with Q-bert on some gear, and the most down-to-earth zen outro to the episode. You know what to do!
