Sound Session #263 (6-13-10)

Posted in Episodes, Sound Session on June 14th, 2010 by Hyphen

I swear it feels like just yesterday when we all watched Zinedine Zidane gracefully end his legendary soccer career by high-fiving Marco Materazzi’s chest with his forehead (confused?), but 4 quick years later and it’s already time for another World Cup.  While I’ve had a few debates with my non-soccer loving friends, overall, it seems like everyone is pretty excited about the tournament.  On the pitch, every country other than Germany is off to a slow start, but that’s fairly typical for the Cup.  As the teams get into their second games, things will loosen up a bit and the questionable goalkeeping combined with Adidas’ controversial Jabulani ball should provide some memorable moments.

Unfortunately, due to the time difference from South Africa to the Pacific Northwest, half of these memorable moments will occur when we’re asleep or just waking up.  Consequently, I’ll wrap this up in hope that I can change my schedule for the next few weeks.  Early to bed (for once) means that I can actually catch the 7am (or perhaps the 5am…well, naaaah) game before hitting the office.

Peep this week’s episode of SNSS for less soccer talk and more musical dopeness, including tracks by Rah Digga, Drake, Kanye, Reflection Eternal, Shad, Outkast, and more.  Plus, we played part of our recent interview with one of the illest new MC’s in the game, Laws.  Be sure to check out the full interview right here.
