'Back of the Class’ Podcast: Kendrick Lamar & Sharing Culture With Our Kids

Welcome to Episode 5 of Back of the Class, Fuse’s hip-hop and pop culture podcast. Every Thursday, we—Juan Cadavid, Esteban Serrano, and Zach Dionne—explore rap music, movies, TV, comics, sports, and whatever's popping within the realms of our eclectic tastes. To close out, we tell you what records we'll be spinning over the weekend.

This week we discuss:

–finding ourselves neck-deep in new, top-notch rap music—while still trying to process all the late 2015 goodness (at the 2:50 mark)
Kendrick Lamar's surprise/surprising album untitled unmastered. (12:40)
–who else we want to see release an untitled unmastered.–style album (21:00)
–shaping—and being shaped by—our kids' tastes in music and culture (26:15)
–Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning's retirement (36:50)
–our weekend listening plans (42:10)

Once you're done, enjoy a playlist featuring songs, trailers, videos and people featured in the show:
