Blockhead & Thun Present : Story Time Rhymes

Today’s show is a double feature. Well, heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeere we go… and you thought textual fairy tales of the European tradition were the only stories that morphed awkwardly from tawdry adults-only fare to twisted stories for the kiddies? What is rap without narrative? Rappers like Slick Rick and Ice-T have earned their place alongside the greatest American storytellers, from Mark Twain to Iceberg Slim to Toni Morrison to Charlie Murphy. Whether you prefer sinister street noir, bawdy bedroom folklore, or spaced out fantasy, there’s a rap song for you. Today we have to compilations, one keeping it real and the other keeping it surreal. Enjoy! — Thun
