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!

East Coast Rarities Volumes 40-49

Monday, January 31st, 2011

Here we go with volumes 40-49 in my east coast rarities series. They are all good, but you might find yourself burning #45. I did. It’s hard to pick tracks because there’s a wealth of dope cuts here. I hope people like listening to these as much as I like putting them together. The problem for me is forgetting about classic material because I’m always digesting ‘new’ hip hop.

Volume 40 —

01 (4:53) Top Choice Clique – Push It Past Red (Full Length Mix)(1994)
02 (5:02) Ill Advised – Against The Grain (1996)
