Take It Personal: Hip-Hop Mount Rushmore

Monday, April 10th, 2017

Episode 9 might be titled the Calm Before The Storm, but it’s anything but. Our next show will be a DJ Premier tribute, so we wanted to take a short break from the tributes and get back to the traditional potpourri show. Special guest, Aaron Wade, sat in with us as we discussed and dissed each other’s Hip-Hop Mount Rushmore. We also announced the winner of our Evolution of The B-Boy Sticker pack contest and play some ridiculously dope music from Mobb Deep, Jeru The Damaja, Brand Nubian, Kool G. Rap, Gang Starr, Ice Cube, Das EFX, People Under The Stairs, Insight, J-Zone and Supastition. Plus, we threw in some new jawns by King Magnetic, Kendrick Lamar and a special K-Def/DJ 360 Beneficence remix. So, while you’re listening. think of who you’d put on your Mount Rushmore and then share your picks with us in the comment section. RIP Don Rickles!

T.R.O.Y. Presents – Sounds Like The 90s Vol. 24

Tuesday, August 16th, 2016

We create these Sounds Like The 90s, to share with you new(er) tunes, that we feel represent that 90s hip-hop we love. Listen with an open mind and most importantly, support the artists featured on these Sounds Like The 90s if you like what you hear. 24 is a great number, my favorite number for obvious reasons, so it only made sense to incorporate my childhood idol Rickey Henderson on the cover. Props to dirt_dog for always blessing the artwork. And if you’re a fan of his work, you’ll be happy to know our Certified Dope Apparel is back for a limited time as well. Peace to to all those who continue to support Philaflava, Steady Bloggin and of course, T.R.O.Y.   –Jason Gloss

Follow us on Instagram @Philaflava if you’re feeling nostalgic.
Stay tuned for the return of The Philaflava Show, as we bring you Take It Personal radio dropping this fall.

Work of Mart (DJ Premier)

Wednesday, October 2nd, 2013

If you’ve been following us and we hope you are,  just last week we created our new Spotify playlist titled Work of Mart.

Currently 166 tracks deep and adding daily, or whatever becomes available via Spotify. Our mixes don’t have restrictions on them. What you see is what you’ll hear, meaning no tracks uploaded on our end and limited to just our PC’s. We’ve spent some time sequencing the list, though shuffle is always the safe way to go.

If you’re a Spotify member, follow us because we have a slew of other great playlists you may be interested in.

Would be nice to finally hear Preem set the record straight. What are your thoughts? And where does Gang Starr rank among your all-time favorite groups?

2Pac – NY ’87 feat. Kurupt, Threat & Daz (Jeru, B.I.G., Mobb Deep, ATCQ diss)

Tuesday, June 28th, 2011

A bunch of disses on this thing. Did anyone know about this track? Channel Live, Jeru The Damaja, Notorious B.I.G., Mobb Deep, Tragedy Khadafi, and A Tribe Called Quest all get called out on this one. I can honestly say this is the first time I’m hearing this track and knew nothing about it prior to Magneto dropping it on Philaflava.

(Poll) Best Crooklyn Dodgers Joint?

Saturday, November 27th, 2010

Which one will prevail?

Does anyone like Part III? Is that an official sequel? Who decides such things? The Borough President?

Why did Jeru stop rapping like that?

Did Barbara Walters ever respond to Chubb Rock’s dis?

Was hot peas and butter a harmless urban pastime or ritualized violence?

Will rappers wax poetic about the old Yankee Stadium in fifteen years?

Videos and poll after the jump. (more…)
