Cedric & Tressie

Welcome to Through The Crate! A podcast digging through cultural and current events through the hip hop lens!

About us:
Two cousins hailing from Oakland, CA (who currently reside in Chicago, IL) with a love for the universal language. Music has always been an important part of our lives from early on in our childhood. We were both involved in some type of musical activity, be it playing an instrument or trying to make original songs on our own. Fast forward to recent years, the two of us are now avid hip hop fans and take the music and culture seriously.

Our goal is to provide a prospective on music and culture that is honest, real and unapologetic. We leave no stone left unturned, making sure our listeners know the history as well as what's popping today. If you're looking for a podcast that isn't afraid to express an opinion, call out the bullshit when need be and secure enough to admit when its wrong, then you're in the right place. With that said, come dig through the crate with us!
