Face it. A lot of times when you’re looking for new music, whether it’s for a long ride or when you’re trying to impress someone with your eclectic musical taste, you can only scroll through albums on Spotify for so long before you settle on the same old playlist or the recommendations that they’re probably being paid to show you. That is why I am bringing you Check It, a podcast dedicated to bringing you musical recommendations from people you respect.
Our first guest on Check It is none other than the Cunninlynguist’s Deacon the Villain.
As a member of Cunninlyngusts, Deacon first burst onto the scene in 2001 with the cult classic Will Rap 4 Food. He’s been a part of all five studio albums and the Sloppy Seconds and Strange Journey mixtape series as well as having a successful solo career. Deacon dropped his most recent solo album, Peace or Power, in 2015. Check out Deacon’s recommendations below.
