In this episode, Hip hop artist Rick Chyme and keyboardist Ryan K. Wilson crushed it at The Meanwhile with WMI editor James Quatrine. We talked about their new project "5iveit," their former incarnation The Southpaw Players, and the whole family of friends that help support these righteous dudes.

There’s even a special appearance by Joshua Burge and Mike Saunders from Chance Jones. They spoke of their recent film ‘Ape’ (Directed by Joel Potrykus).

It’s long podcast, but it’s WELL worth listening to the whole thing. Podcast includes tracks: Anyone Who Ever Dreamed, Thursday (live) by The Southpaw Players. D.J.C. feat. Karisa Wilson, Hypothermia feat. Molly Bouwsma-Schultz and Ryan K. Wilson, and Eff Cancer feat. Molly Bouwsma-Schultz.
