The Serious Rap Shit Holiday Party takes over Radio Kismet this Saturday
Key contributing writer John Morrison, host of WXPN’s Culture Cypher Radio, is shifting things into high gear with one of his other pursuits: the Serious Rap Shit podcast, our favorite way to catch up on new rap releases, music news, and current events.
SRS recently announced a partnership with iHeartMedia, which is going to put their “news, views, and unsolicited opinions” in front of a much bigger audience — and they’ve already built up a dedicated community of listeners on their own.
The first iHeart episode debuts next Tuesday, December 17th, and to celebrate the deal — as well as the end of the year, and its spectrum of warm and fuzzy holidays — John and Josh are throwing a party this Saturday night at Callowhill event space Radio Kismet.
The plan is a screening of the Philadelphia-shot, Christmas-adjacent 80s comedy Trading Places starring Dan Aykroyd and Eddie Murphy, followed by a discussion of the film. More information can be found at Facebook. Not familiar with SRS? You’ve got some catching up to do before December 17th; listen and subscribe on Soundcloud below.
