Philaflava: It Was In The Fuckin’ Movies

Sunday, December 4th, 2016

In January, we’re doing a themed soundtrack episode on Take It Personal, so it only made sense to share with you some of the amazing work TheBigSleep has been putting in on the Philaflava forums lately. Hip-Hop soundtracks have always been important releases. Many created with little association to the actual film, some monumental to the films and it’s critical moments. Today we bring you the first 4 compilations in the series that showcases just that. –Philaflava

T.R.O.Y. Quiz: How Hip-Hop Are You? #2

Thursday, August 7th, 2014

Well that was quick.  Yesterday we launched our new quiz and it took off like wildfire. Social media had people disgusted with their miserable scores. I realize I’m the one creating these questions so I’m bias, but there were definitely a few freebies I thought we gave you.  Apparently that wasn’t the case and even the top scholars I know got a few questions wrong. Not many scored 100%.  So, let’s try this one more time before we go to break. These quizzes will be published on The T.R.O.Y. blog bi-weekly, so yesterday if you did poorly, now is your chance to redeem yourself. I don’t want to say I dumbed this down, but it should be significantly easier than yesterday. I’ll continue to make these entertaining and informative, but I also want to add something for everyone. No site. No blog. No app. Nobody is fucking with us. This is fucking M.I.T. when it comes to hip-hop.
