The outspoken turntablist discussed the altercation, among many other topics, such as touring with Kanye West and working with Four Color Zack.

At one point, co-host DJ Crooked asked Craze how he goes about planning his sets. Craze revealed that he didn’t plan his sets until he started working with Zack.
