In honor of Shea’s new book, Hip-Hop and Other Things, Jinx and Shea discuss UGK’s critically acclaimed Southern classic, Ridin’ Dirty. Shea shares some stories about his time in Houston and moments with Bun B while going through songs like “One Day,” “Murder,” “Diamonds & Wood,” and “Pinky Ring.” Next, hear who had the Best Guest Verse between Smoke D, Ronnie Spencer, and Mr. 3-2. And later, listen to them dissect one of the best verses in hip-hop history, which cements this album as one of the greatest of all time. As always, stick around to hear the heated courtroom debate in Deena’s Court and find out who gets to select the featured song at the end of the episode.
