Propaganda and Shane Hipps
This week we introduce you to a fresh voice in the hop-hop world, outspoken M.C. Propaganda. Prop brings an uncompromising message mixed with some sick beats, and yes, we're big fans. We also talk to author (and former pastor of Mars Hill) Shane Hipps about his new book and thoughts on Christianity and religion. We round out the episode with some discussion about Mark Driscoll's controversial political tweet (and Shaun King's equally divisive reply), Cameron's first mixtape to Maya, and our favorite David Caruso one-liners (you guys killed it this week).

Question of the Week
What is your ultimate late-2000 mixtape?
At some point in all of our lives, we've found ourselves on the giving or receiving end of a mixtape. Most likely it was centered around a relationship (or the hope of beginning one), but who can forget the pre-iTunes joy of (what seems to be) the lost art of making and delivering an epic mixtape. Unfortunately, many of these mixtapes were created circa the year 2000 (Linkin Park or Dave Matthews anyone??). So this week, we want you to take a trip down memory lane and tell us your ultimate mixtape (created before 2001). And if you feel so inclined, go make us a Spotify playlist of your mixtape and send us the link. We'll talk about (and maybe play) some of our favorites on next week's show.
