The wild and entertaining podcast that stars N.O.R.E. and DJ EFN has been picked up by Puff Daddy’s Revolt TV. Variety reports say the Drink Champs will officially be on national television. To jump start their new platform, the two-man crew will have a special Thanksgiving night premiere episode that starts at 11:15 pm EST. This allows you to enjoy this entertaining show, before you make your runs for Black Friday. The premiere show will feature Sean ‘Puff Daddy’ Combs. Following the premiere episode, there will be a six-episode marathon that airs on Christmas Day. Afterwards, all-new episodes will begin airing on January 4th.
Combs, the chairman of Revolt shared his reason for bringing Drink Champs aboard. “N.O.R.E. and DJ EFN have created a franchise brand with Drink Champs, and we are honored to welcome them”, said Combs. The show’s transition to television displays the leap that the Drink Champs have made from their podcast series, which originally aired in January 2015. N.O.R.E. was able to sit and talk with XXL Magazine about the latest venture, where he shared how a lot of credit is owed to the candidness of the guests.
N.O.R.E. say, “If people really listen to Drink Champs, the shit has nothing to do with hip-hop. It’s about the person that’s in hip-hop. It’s about Snoop Dogg meeting Nas for the first time. Everything is hip-hop, but it’s the least amount of what’s important. It’s the people. I’m like the Feds. I ask you a question and I already know the answer to it. Sometimes, it’s purely me being a fan. I listen to myself during the 50 Cent interview and I literally hear myself sounding like a little kid. I was just so open. I couldn’t believe he came.” The past two seasons of the popular podcast is currently on their YouTube channel.
