Episode 16- New York State of Mind

This week we’re in a New York state of mind, discussing the current state of NY hip-hop from our admittedly outsider perspective. The second segment focuses on uses of classical music in hip-hop and a discussion of Nas’s recent concert with a symphony at the Kennedy Center.

Episode 15- The New Style / Death To Throwback

We may be gentlemen of a certain age, but that doesn’t men we only listen to the old-school classics. Today’s show is all about new music. We recommend a bunch fire joints that were all released within the last year. In the second segment we make the case for “throwback rap” terrestrial radio stations to broaden their playlists beyond the obvious hits.
