Take It Personal Podcast (Ep 6: Philly Hip-Hop Tribtue)

Sunday, February 26th, 2017

Episode 6 is our longest one yet and for good reason. This isn’t your typical Philly hip-hop show, this is the official Philly hip-hop tribute show. Chock-full of Illadelph classics, along with our special tour guides Vinnie Paz, Maylay Sparks, Baby Blak, CHOPS, Todd Wolfe and MarQ Spekt to help navigate you through the two one fifth. Unlike the ewoks, our episode VI won’t disappoint. So whether you’re from Philly, know of Philly or even like Philly, you can’t front on our music. We’re more than just cheese steaks, soft pretzels and Rocky Balboa, we’re home of some of the greatest musicians ever. If you’re a fan of Schoolly D, Steady B, 100x, Bahamadia, Freeway, Tuff Crew or The Roots — we got you!

Black Thought – “Men At Work” at The Roots Picnic (mp3)

Friday, June 10th, 2011

 

The homie from NYC, Fat Boy Brandon, had this to say about Black Thought’s recent live rendition of Kool G Rap’s classic “Men At Work”:

Just wanted to drop this here to see what ya think, I know Kool G Rap’s Men At Work must rank highly in alota people’s lyrics of the late 80’s. Sounds like a challenge to recite that song in a live performance with no hypeman but I think Black Thought did well. Take a listen if you haven’t heard this already, it’s audio from this year’s Roots Picnic in Philly.
