Take It Personal (Ep 28: Respond / React)

Tuesday, June 12th, 2018

On episode 28, we discuss beef. Today’s beef ain’t what it used to be, so like Biggie said “What’s beef?” Pusha T vs. Drake is fun, but we remind you of when these battles meant something. And speaking of reminding, it’s time we remind everyone that Black Thought being a top 5 is no longer up for discussion. Seasons change mad things rearrange and with this summer heat we had to lace you with classics from Naughty By Nature, Heavy D, Slum Village, O.C., Main Source, Cypress Hill, KMD, Jay-Z, Big Daddy Kane and you know no TIP episode is complete without a DJ 360 remix! We also have new joints from Pusha T, Black Thought, J. Cole, Forever M.C. and an exclusive by Vanderslice & Conway.

Producer extraordinaire and professional feelings hurter, Vanderslice also stops by to talk about his upcoming album The Best Album Money Can Buy and to debut of our new segment – The Happy Recap w/Vanderslice. This is the start of summer and Take It Personal plans to keep you entertained all throughout. Grab your drinks, smokes and if you’re sweating profusely, then grab some ice cubes and rub them all over like Mookie did to Tina. Just make sure you listen to episode 28 on blast and preferably on repeat too!

Brooklyn Tribute (In Memory of James)

Saturday, February 10th, 2018

Our close friend, James Murphy, and one of our biggest show supporters unexpectedly passed away on January 26. Just 3 days after his 44th birthday. James was great person who made it his purpose in life to bring joy to others. I first met him in gym class my freshman year while discussing Brand Nubian’s In God We Trust. It was hip-hop that brought us together. Hip-hop was his passion, as it is for many of us. I was fortunate to experience many great concerts with him: A Tribe Called Quest, The Roots, Run-DMC, Brand Nubian, Heltah Skeltah, all the Rock The Bell tours too, but the one I’ll never forget was Gang Starr. Guru was his absolute favorite. After the show he walked up to Guru, called him by his real name (Keith) and Guru was like, “you don’t know me like that cousin.” Of course, Guru was smiling, signed an auto and we all had our moment- a special moment we never forgot. They called James “MC Murf,” even though he was far from an emcee. He reminded a lot of us of MC Serch. James was born and raised in Brooklyn and proud of it. He was BK to the fullest. When he passed I didn’t know what to do with myself. I still don’t. Losing a close friend is never easy. We all grieve in different ways and mine was to throw myself into music. DJ 360 and myself decided the best way to celebrate James’ life was to do a Brooklyn tribute in his honor. These are tracks that I knew he loved, but also tracks we love and ones we feel capture the essence of BK. We fully intend to do an entire show dedicated to the boroughs of New York, but for now, this is a mini-mix in honor of our friend, James and the great Kings County. We will never be able to replace James, as he was truly one of a kind, but we know he is still listening to us from upstairs. Rest in power, my brother.
