I started off the year with a month long theme which is Phase 3 in what has been an ongoing epic experience that Iâ€™ve dubbed â€œCut Short Careersâ€
Phase One-One Album Only (Nov â€˜07): This was a five week special covering a lot of ground and a lot of underground favorites who only dropped one album (and maybe a few singles or appearances); Hard Knocks, C.P.O, Breeze, Diamond Shell, Cannibal Ox, Kurious, Mad Kap, Da King & I, Future Sound, Funkytown Pros, and the list goes on and on…
Phase Two-Singles and Appearances Only 1986-1992 [No Albums] (Jan â€˜08): Some of these artists are simply too mind-blowing to never had a full length (Latee, Freshco & Miz, & Sir Ibu) … others are some favorites of mine: His Majesti, 4Ever Fresh, Too Poetic, Crush Nation, Castle D, The Brothers (Kickin Live Productions), and so on and on….
Phase Three-Singles and Appearances only 1993-2002 [No Album] (Jan â€˜09): The bulk of this time is in that incredible indie explosion of the Mid and Late 90s (mainly thanx to Wu-Tang for making the self-financed 12″ the new â€œdemoâ€). Dredknotz, Ten Thieves, Rugged Brood, Natural Elements, Street Smartz, Spoon Of Iodine, DV Alias Khrist, Tony Bones, J Treds, K Borne, IG Off & Hazardous, Vooodu!, etc…
Phase Four-Guest Appearances Only (No Album, No Single), stay tuned.
As for the immediate future for Redefinition Radio, Iâ€™ve collected a nice stack of new music while being focused on this last theme so starting next week Iâ€™ll start dropping some of that: Czar, Yadi Supreme, K the I, P.O.S, Custodian Of Records, Myka 9, Labtekwon…
