Bazooka Joe (f/k/a John Smith) and [Rob Crooks](http://www.robcrooks.com) have worked together in various capacities over their decades of service to the local hip-hop scene, but Schadenfreude is their first collaborative record. The album, which [drops Dec. 29 on Eat 'Em Up Records](http://www.facebook.com/events/2037670619852384/), features beats by Crooks and rhymes by Joe, and Saturday's release show at the Garrick Hotel includes guests like [Gruf](http://witchpolice.podiant.co/e/354741eff8d7ccL/) and [Lonnie Ce](http://witchpolice.podiant.co/e/3551888dd55e86L/) (both past Witchpolice guests as well). We travel between a Robin's Donuts and a parked car to talk about the album, their collaboration, their other projects, and much more.
