I Got Five On It
Trust me… The Five-Year Anniversary episode of the Best Friend Weekend Podcast did not disappoint! Lock in, because Aldo NICE produced the extended clip of all extended clips with this two-hour heat check. First, we took a trip down memory lane with some old audio from some of the first episodes of the podcast (01:00) before Rumble hopped on to give his official BFW salute (04:00). From there, Los aka C.A.P. and Aldo chopped it up about the beginnings of the podcast, how we got here, and what this really means to us (05:00) before running through some stories about how we have built this decade-long friendship (15:00). Next, Aldo let us know What Burned His Boudin this week including folks “putting you on” something cheap (24:00), HOV lanes with barriers (28:00), and choosing some nasty lyrics to condemn (32:00). After this, we brought in some guests to run down our normal weekly commentary on the culture starting with Doc appearing to help us work through D. Wade’s son’s Easter pictures from a mental health point of view (39:00). Then, Gramstar showed up and also gave his thoughts on this (56:00) along with a transgender inmate getting folks pregnant in prison (1:01:00) which led to the crew giving our Big Three Man Skills (1:10:00). We followed this up with Aldo having Nothin’ NICE to Say about a four-day work week (1:28:00) where Bald Head Harry made an appearance. This allowed us to pivot to a convo about mask mandates (1:36:00) and our Big Three baby gifts that we have received (1:41:00). Finally, we had the Bossman John Murray on, post-credits, to get us over two hours and giving his unique Caribbean flare to the episode.
