Play episode · 1 hr 25 min

For the debut episode of Renaissance Soul, we go into a deep dive of the album Big Shoes from Detroit hip-hop emcee Big Tone produced entirely by House Shoes, released on June 7, 2019 on House Shoes' own imprint Street Corner Music. Joining us in this deep dive is Big Tone himself to talk about this collaborative album with House Shoes, where their history together as both friends and collaborators shine. Through Big Shoes, we get a glimpse into the world of Detroit hip-hop spanning back to the 90s with all the ups and downs of a city that is always struggling, but always moving.

During our deep dive into Big Shoes, we go track-by-track and talk about stories, meanings, and inspirations behind each song on the album. Through those stories, we also talk about the many social and economical issues that have long faced Detroit hip-hop, the city itself, and the black communities.
