Take It Personal – Episode 7: Passing The Torch

Tuesday, March 14th, 2017

 

Episode 7 might sound more like Drink Champs cuz we were highly intoxicated while recording this, but the music, like always, is on point Phife. We don’t necessarily have a theme this show, but we do focus on MC’s making dope music these days. It’s our passing of the torch episode, so-to-speak. We got joints from Your Old Droog, Nick Grant, Apathy, Killer Mike, Action Bronson, Roc Marciano and Milano Constantine to name a few. And it wouldn’t feel right dropping this show on March 9th without paying homage to Biggie, so keep it locked as we try to entertain you once again on Take It Personal.

T.R.O.Y. & Certified Dope Apparel Present – Sounds Like The 90′s Vol. 22

Friday, September 20th, 2013

It’s been a constant struggle to produce these lately, manly because I always feel I’m at an impasse with the selections. Is it too new sounding? Is it too dated? Is the quality of the mp3 good? Then of course, there is always, isn’t this track kinda played out by now?

I know it’s hard to believe, but I really do put in work selecting, sequencing and creating the overall package for your CD-r or iTunes. This time around T.R.O.Y. and Certified Dope Apparel bring you volume 22, a compilation that features a collection of tracks that we feel exemplifies just how great hip-hop has been, even if a few joints are slightly aged by now.

15+ years ago Ecko used to give mixtapes out with the purchase of their clothes. I never did rock much Ecko, but I made sure to rock those mixtapes. It was an ingenious idea by Mark Milecofsky Mark Ecko. Now 100 million dollars later you have Eckō Unltd. Not that we’re expecting to reach those levels but we feel we have something special with these 3 great collaborative shirts with Certified Dope. And of course, purchase or no purchase, we hope you enjoy our latest offering,  the Sounds Like The 90’s Vol. 22 .

Vol. 22 takes us back in time, so extract the file, burn to a disc (56 mins total) or add to your playlist. Spread the word, spread the file and let’s celebrate hip-hop music.  I hope you enjoy Sounds Like The 90’s as much as I do creating them, even if it’s sometimes a challenge. –PhilaflavabomockbiggercousinmockbiggersologreymockbiggersolotankbiggerCLICK HERE TO ENTER STORE

Organized Konfusion – “Invetro”

Tuesday, December 28th, 2010

Stream: Organized Konfusion “Invetro”

It is 1997. Pharohe Monch and Prince Po are in their mid-twenties but they radiate a level of maturity and weariness one does not normally observe in people under fifty. They have encountered numerous difficulties —the death of their mentor Paul C, multiple label reassignments, critical adoration that never translates into gold sales— but unlike the majority of the rap artists that debuted around the same time,  they have lingered long enough to release their third album.

Their works are lauded for being ahead of the curve at points, but each release also functions as a time capsule for their respective mini-epochs of rap. Their self-titled 1991 debut is an upbeat hodgepodge of whimsical concepts and fanciful fables; their 1994 sophomore effort mostly abandons their early formulas and sticks closely to a script of rugged realism; 1997’s The Equinox boasts a sparer sound that the duo uses to render an atmosphere of gloom, paranoia, and uncertainty.

Open Mike Eagle, Lil B, and L-Dash Rewrite The Epiphany Rap

Thursday, November 11th, 2010

A few months ago I found myself rolling my eyes at message board comments that criticized Nas and Damian Marley’s song “Africa Must Wake Up” for its romanticized depiction of the troubled continent and failure to serve as a musical TED Talk1 teeming with cogent insight and creative solutions to famine and war. For now, let’s put aside the implausibility of any song directly effecting measurable social change. The idea that rap music derives its primary worth from its ability to articulate academically supported geo-political analysis is silly and should probably not be engaged. I’m also willing for now to ignore the inability of many commenters to assess Nas’s lyrics inside of the more logical context of rap and reggae’s treatment of Africa as an extended metaphor for past and future utopias.  I am most peeved by the implicit assumption that the act of awaking to the world’s problems, the unsettling mental and emotional process that precedes any attempt at political action or even coherent ideological formation, is somehow too juvenile of a preoccupation for rap. How can that be close to true if rap is so damned good at capturing these epiphanies?
