Hannibal Buress’ Handsome Rambler podcast has been around for only six months, and it’s already a certified must-listen. So far, he’s featured people like Chance The Rapper, Talib Kweli, Saba, and Flying Lotus and Thundercat.

In his latest episode he flew down to Atlanta’s Laughing Skull Lounge to interview Killer Mike. The interview was recorded on 4/20, which just so happens to be Mike’s birthday. Because of these factors, the mood was…festive, and the conversations were in depth; the two talked for nearly two hours. They touched on everything from the origins of Killer Mike’s super group Run the Jewels to his and Big Boi’s appearance as rapping foxes on HBO’s Animals.

There’s also a bunch of jokes and laughs. So give the latest episode of Handsome Rambler below.
