The interview was your standard; Nardwuar supplies artist with incredible finds pertaining to said artist’s life, artist then begins to be wow’d and amazed, and repeat.This time around, Narwuar was able give Wiz an interesting walk down memory lane with songs he has sampled and songs that are considered great “marijuana songs.”
