Episode 37- Media Assassins with guests Shaka Shaw and Jeff Weiss

How many of the top 10 best selling rap albums are actually good? We discuss that with journalist Shaka Shaw live in studio. The second segment is a wide-ranging conversation with journalist Jeff Weiss of Passion of the Weiss, the Washington Post, and soon The LAnd, a new magazine that is emerging from the ashes of the disgraced LA Weekly. We’d like to thank Jumbled for submitting the beats we used in between segments this week. Give him a listen on Soundcloud.

Episode 36- Aretha Tribute with guest Apani B Fly MC

In the first segment we pay tribute to the Queen of Soul, the dearly departed Aretha Franklin. We spend some time on her life and music and we recommend tracks to help folks understand the connections between her music and some classic hip-hop productions. In the second segment we interview Apani B Fly MC, a standout of the late-90’s, early-2000’s New York underground scene. We are big fans of her music, her voice, her writing, and she makes a few announcements that will be great news for her fans. Beats this week were submitted by Son Raw, a beatmaker and journalist out of Montreal, heard here for the first time. Follow him on Twitter @sonraw for the imminent drop of his new beat tape. We also continue our cross-promotion with the Dope Sh!t Podcast out of New York. It’s been really rewarding to build with all of these like-minded folks. Thanks for listening.
