Episode 195 with guests Skiz Fernando, Tall Black Guy & Ozay Moore

This week we have a conversation with journalist, author and label head S.H. Fernando, who recently released From The Streets Of Shaolin: The Wu-Tang Saga. The book is an insider’s account of the Wu’s rise to the top of the rap industry, full of fly-on-the-wall observations and sections on every major group and solo project op to We-Tang Forever. Fernando also ran WordSound Recordings, a left-field record label that released hip-hop and electronic music around the turn of the century. Next up we have dual interviews with Producer Tall Black Guy and MC Ozay Moore. The pair recently released a collaborative album called Of Process And Progression. TBG is a prolific producer who works in a variety of tempos and textures but always with an underlying soulfulness to the beats. Ozay, formerly known as Othello, is a hip-hop educator and veteran MC with an observational rap style. DBRP is a proud part of Stony Island Audio, one of those pristine record shops that’s in a nice neighborhood and only sells expensive import dance records.
