Being from the 509 myself, I am aware of the big chip on our shoulder us eastside musicians carry in regard to the shadow western Washington has over us. That chip is not always limited in just music alone. The politics between the eastern and western sides of the state generally sit on opposite angles and that type of thinking can lead to interesting dialogue/debates/feuds/verbal fisticuffs/actual fisticuffs between natives of either side.
However, as to how most things pan out, there are more than just red and blue types of ideologies on the right side of the state and the new podcast “Beers, Bongs, & Bullshit” is a testament to that. Formed by Spokane rap vets and longtime friends On One, True Justice, and Big P, the podcast is part social commentary, part sports ranting, part interview segment, and everything in between leading to an entertaining gumbo of sorts that has developed a good following over its 7 episodes and counting.
The trio came together having been long time homies and wanting to have an outlet they could speak on as to whatever was on their minds being it heavy topics like Covid and the state of policing in America or lighter fare like UFC and football. On One had said he had pitched the idea of a podcast to TJ sometime ago but that TJ thought it was stupid. Laughing about it now, TJ says he was later inspired after becoming a fan himself of podcasts, notably the juggernaut Joe Rogan show.
