The guys welcome Impact, Teddy Graham, and Repellent representing the No Excuses Rap Battle League into the Big Z Broadcast Studio (West)! We talk about the sport of competitive lyrical jousting, how No Excuses got its start, how our guests got involved, and how No Excuses is being received by other battle rap leagues in the area.

If you've ever been at all interested in battle rap, this is the episode for you! noexcusesbattles.com

On this Episode we have Comedian/Promoter Chadd Marty Beals and Comedian Phat Joe. We find out how Phat Joe went from his first open-mic to his third time on stage opening for Del Van Dyke. WTF!
