Cipha Sounds and Peter Rosenberg have finally let loose with their highly awaited Juan Epstein podcast. This is the Kanye interview for all the music nerds, obsessive fans, and people who really care about Kanye’s music. No Kim K. talk or tabloid rumor chatter. It’s all about the music on this one.

Yeezy and the guys start out by discussing Kanye’s early days, and about how he’s “more Pete Rock than Premo,” a fan of the MPC and ASR, and how No I.D., Pete Rock, Premier, RZA and Q-Tip were the first producers that made him want to make beats. He also gave away a very personal story about how his crackhead brother slowed up his quest to get his first sampler. Also, even Kanye was a skateboarder as a teen.

There’s so much more in this 30-minute interview, so get some popcorn and press play.
