Rapper Heems and chef Eddie Huang chat with Soundcheck host John Schaefer in the Greene Space.

In this episode: A conversation about Wu-Tang, sneakers, race and authenticity with Eddie Huang and Heems. Last week, Soundcheck hosted a conversation with chef, author and hip hop-head Eddie Huang and former Das Racist rapper Heems. Today, we bring you their frank and funny conversation about race, food, music, culture and ethnicity – and a live performance from Heems and another former Das Racist member, Dapwell.

Plus: We revisit an earlier conversation with aspiring young chef Annick Giroux, who compiled recipes from some of her favorite metal bands for a book called “Hellbent for Cooking: The Heavy Metal Cookbook.” She joined us by phone from Montreal back in 2010, and we speak with her about how she came up with the idea for the book -- and how she went about collecting recipes from members of bands like Anthrax, Thin Lizzy and Judas Priest.
