Episode 213- Honorable But Not Economical with guest Easy A.D. of the Cold Crush Brothers

This week we have some Academy Award chatter and then we are talking about the true old school period of hip-hop’s history. Sometimes called the park jam era, the period when hip-hop was primarily a practice of urban youth and not a recorded music is an under-discussed and deeply important time in history. Our guest this week, Easy A.D. of the legendary Cold Crush Brothers was a major part of a pioneering group that excelled in this time period and continues to influence music today. We speak with him about the film Wild Style, the amount of rehearsal it took to develop routines that have stood the test if time, his musical tastes, and much much more. Beats this week are by DJ Day from his recently-released album Life After You. DBRP is a proud part of the Stony Island Audio podcast network, an independent voice for hip-hop storytelling owned and operated by the artists themselves.
