Hip-hop compilations are vital vehicles for helping audiences understand far-flung scenes and sub-genres. There is a feeling among our hosts that there are not as many well-curated compilations as there used to be. Enter this week’s guest, radio host, TV presenter and all around hip-hop head Peter Rosenberg. Real Late, a compilation curated and executive produced by Rosenberg, was released earlier this year and features a lot of great rappers from several different eras of gritty street rap. Rosenberg joins us for a deep dive on the album’s construction, sharing insight into why and how some of the guests contributed to the final product. Beats this week were submitted by Chaz Emphatic, from the album Postcard (Expanded ). DBRP is a proud part of the Stony Island Audio podcast network.
