KRS-One Interview

Saturday, May 5th, 2018

When the teacha talks, you listen. KRS-One stopped by Take It Personal to discuss, well, everything. This isn’t just our best interview, it’s our most favorite! KRS-One is not one to shy away from any topic, so we covered his beef with MC Shan, politics, working with R.E.M., Ced Gee’s involvement on Criminal Minded, working with DJ Premier again, his musical influence, his fame and he even laced us with an off-the-top freestyle. Don’t forget to check out the full tribute episode if you haven’t already. It contains countless classics, unreleased gems, remixes and stellar guest spots. This interview is so good, by the time that 60 minutes is up, I’m certain you’ll be wanting more Blastmaster.

The Greatest KRS-One/BDP Tribute of All-Time

Wednesday, April 18th, 2018

Episode 25 was a dream come true for us. If you’ve listened to our Wu-Tang, DJ Premier, Prodigy, Atmosphere and Pete Rock tribute shows, you know we’re like Steady B and take these tributes seriously. On this 5+ hour tribute, we take you back to the days of Boogie Down Production all the way to the Blastmaster of today. We sprinkle in boom bap classics, underground anthems, guest appearances, remixes and personal favorites throughout this musical journey. It’s sometimes easy to forget greatness, but after this episode, we’re certain everyone will remember just how important, influential and accomplished KRS-One is. We’re also certain after listening, it’s going to be difficult not to reconsider your greatest MC’s rankings. We have a brand new website TakeItPersonalRadio.com where you can stream, download and view playlists for every episode we release. Enjoy our KRS-One tribute and keep real hip-hop alive!

KRS-One & Channel Live – Mad Izm (Live 3/2/18)

Monday, March 5th, 2018

Watching KRS-One live is an experience unlike no other. Possibly the greatest hip-hop live show you’ll ever see. The energy, the connection, the catalog, the wisdom and the presence is in a league of its own. If you forgot just how great this man is, please go see him live if he is coming to your town. He hasn’t lost anything and will probably remind you that he is one of the best, if not these best rapper of all-time too. Stay tuned for the KRS-One tribute on Take It Personal coming in April –Philaflava

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.

Take It Personal Podcast (Ep 5: Respect The Architects)

Monday, February 13th, 2017

[soundcloud url=”https://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/307564430″ params=”auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false&visual=true” width=”100%” height=”450″ iframe=”true” /]

This is the first installment of several “Respect The Architects” episodes we’ll be doing. It’s important to not only remember, but respect the pioneers, the originators and the emcees who have influenced in hip-hop as we know it today. While shows like The Get Down or Hip-Hop Evolution have done a great job with the visual side of things, episode 5 is all about the audio. Our topic of the show is what emcee opened your eyes to hip-hop and made you hit that rewind button until it broke? Sit back, relax and thoroughly enjoy the sounds of LL Cool J, Big Daddy Kane, Public Enemy and Boogie Down Productions to name a few.

DJ Filthy Rich – 90s Reggae vs. Hiphop Vol. 1

Sunday, February 7th, 2016

In the early 90s, U.S. record labels started signing the bigger dancehall reggae artists to North American deals. In order to appeal to the domestic market, they started commissioning producers to make hip hop remixes of lead singles. Guys like Salaam Remi, Kenny Dope, Bobby Konders, Clark Kent, KRS-One, and Trackmasters were among the beatmakers creating remixes that came to be more popular in America than the LP versions. These producers in turn enlisted guest verses from rappers like Biggie, Method Man, OGC, Q-Tip, Yo-Yo, and the Geto Boys to create popular combinations. Eventually rappers began seeking out guest verses from reggae artists. The reggae-hiphop sub-genre was suddenly created, and began to flourish.

Being a fan of both genres myself, the marriage of reggae over hip hop beats was a match made in heaven. I started collecting every single piece of vinyl I could find with these remixes.
I wanted to put my collection to use, and decided to create a series of mixes containing 90’s reggae artists over 90’s hip hop beats. Everything from popular hits to obscure white label-only remixes. Including my own custom blends of 90’s reggae acapellas over hiphop instrumentals from that time period. What began as a casual one-off “best of” type of mix, evolved into a multi-volume obsession. I even learned to produce my own party breaks just for this project.

I’ve finally finished the first volume, and wanted to share it here first for the Phila/TROY blog fam. BIG shout outs to certain forum members who contributed tracks/acapellas/instrumentals for this project, especially bbatson, step one, dirt dog, and jaz. Nuff respect. Special thanks to Juhmar for the artwork. -DJ Filthy Rich/djfilthyrich@yahoo.com
