Pharoahe Monch Tribute + Interview

Thursday, September 13th, 2018

Episode 32 has been long overdue. Pharoahe Monch is a part of the lyrical elite, and yet, still doesn’t quite receive the props he deserves. After this tribute, that WILL end today! There has never been a Pharoahe Monch tribute of this magnitude before. We felt it was not only necessary, but equally important to do. Additionally, what would a Take It Personal tribute be without the man of the hour stopping by to share some stories? We talk Paul C., Extra P, and even Kool Keith. We find out what it was like being passed on by Russell Simmons (along with Nas) and signing with Disney. We break down the Stress: Extinction Agenda album cover. We touch on his relationship with O.C. and the fact he thought the Time’s Up beat was pretty wack. We talk Rawkus, ghostwriting for Puffy, sampling, sports, what went wrong on The Equinox; yes, we went there. We asked everything and he answered everything, including the possibility of an OK reunion. We have 86 tracks displaying the brilliance of Pharoahe Monch; we’re proud as hell of this tribute, and honored to have had Pharoahe Monch as our guest. We usually say, we hope you enjoy, but it would be damn near impossible if you didn’t. This is – our Pharoahe Monch Tribute!

Brooklyn Tribute (In Memory of James)

Saturday, February 10th, 2018

Our close friend, James Murphy, and one of our biggest show supporters unexpectedly passed away on January 26. Just 3 days after his 44th birthday. James was great person who made it his purpose in life to bring joy to others. I first met him in gym class my freshman year while discussing Brand Nubian’s In God We Trust. It was hip-hop that brought us together. Hip-hop was his passion, as it is for many of us. I was fortunate to experience many great concerts with him: A Tribe Called Quest, The Roots, Run-DMC, Brand Nubian, Heltah Skeltah, all the Rock The Bell tours too, but the one I’ll never forget was Gang Starr. Guru was his absolute favorite. After the show he walked up to Guru, called him by his real name (Keith) and Guru was like, “you don’t know me like that cousin.” Of course, Guru was smiling, signed an auto and we all had our moment- a special moment we never forgot. They called James “MC Murf,” even though he was far from an emcee. He reminded a lot of us of MC Serch. James was born and raised in Brooklyn and proud of it. He was BK to the fullest. When he passed I didn’t know what to do with myself. I still don’t. Losing a close friend is never easy. We all grieve in different ways and mine was to throw myself into music. DJ 360 and myself decided the best way to celebrate James’ life was to do a Brooklyn tribute in his honor. These are tracks that I knew he loved, but also tracks we love and ones we feel capture the essence of BK. We fully intend to do an entire show dedicated to the boroughs of New York, but for now, this is a mini-mix in honor of our friend, James and the great Kings County. We will never be able to replace James, as he was truly one of a kind, but we know he is still listening to us from upstairs. Rest in power, my brother.

Take It Personal (Ep 19: Atmosphere Tribute) with Slug

Thursday, November 30th, 2017

Over the past two decades, Atmosphere has been touring the globe, making music, making fans and one member, especially, making babies. Hailing outta Minneapolis, Slug and Ant aren’t just a group, they’re Minnesota Nice! The slept-on beatmaker and storyteller have accumulated copious amounts of success throughout the years, so it was time Take It Personal took you on a tribute trip down Atmosphere lane. We cover the classics, the obscure, fan favorites and even some collaborations. We promise you, there will never be another Atmosphere tribute quite like this one. To further cement that, we invited Slug on the show to break bread with us. The 2-part interview plays throughout this 4+ hour tribute show. We delve into a different side of Sean Daley. We talk Al Franken, ironically, a day before the allegations came out. We talk critics, family, touring, Soundset, DJ Premier and some crazy stories like the time Rick Rubin was courting them. When you think Minnesota musicians, you immediately think of Prince, The Time, Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis, and probably Bob Dylan, but after this show, we have to think Atmosphere will be right there with them.
