I love the premise of hip hop legends being given a relaxed platform to be interviewed about everything they've done in their career but too often these seem like a missed opportunity. One of the big problems is Nore who is not a very good host. While he knows his hip hop history, himself being a small part of it, he interrupts the guest too often and his "MAKE SOME NOISE" act every 5 minutes is annoying. One of the lines you hear often from Nore is that the show gives its flowers to the legends while they are still here, but there isn't enough of what made them earn the flowers spoken about. The recent The Game interview is a perfect example. It is 4 hours long but very few of his songs, albums, upcoming projects, creative process, etc, are spoken about. Instead they talk about finger banging techniques.
