Meyhem Lauren is extended family to Take It Personal. He was one of our first supporters dating back to episode 1, when we were podcast rookies shaking off decade old rust from when we last did radio. Meyhem and DJ Muggs just dropped one of the best albums of the year titled “Gems From The Equinox.” They all have been busy doing promo and we were fortunate to catch up with Meyhem while he was on tour with Action Bronson. We talk music, Muggs, pizza, watches, Viceland, Macho Man vs. Ric Flair, Kelly Kapowski vs. Lisa Turtle and we even managed to sneak on stage with him as he performed Hot Pepper. Meyhem is always honest, always witty and 100% good peoples. We strongly encourage you to listen to Episode 18 in its entirety, but for those who want to hear just the interview, here you go!

6+ Hour Prodigy (Mobb Deep) Tribute Show

July 19th, 2017

After our 6+ hour DJ Premier show, we swore we were done with tributes for a while. Then, on June 20th, hip-hop suffered another tremendous loss. We usually celebrate the careers of the artists we do tributes on, but in this show, we wanted to celebrate the life of Albert “Prodigy” Johnson as well. Like the Preem tribute, this was no easy feat. Prodigy’s career was remarkable filled with longevity and a ridiculously extensive catalog. He started making music as a teen and went out doing exactly what he loved at aged 42. This tribute was an emotional one, and we know many of you will get to re-live moments when you first heard these Mobb classics. If there is one thing our listeners should know by now about Take It Personal, it’s that we take it SERIOUSLY!

We have 5 extraordinary guests, each one sharing unique, personal stories about Prodigy. Shouts out to DJ Premier, Bonz Malone, Meyhem Lauren, Domingo and Ras Kass for being a huge part of this proper send-off. You all helped make this a masterpiece.

And since this is another 6+ hour one, we decided to break it up into two parts. Please make sure you listen to it in its entirety- I promise, you don’t want to miss anything our guests had to say or any of the joints we played. P may be gone, but his music lives forever. RIP P!

Take It Personal – Exclusive DJ Premier Interview

July 6th, 2017

We were fortunate enough to have the greatest producer of all-time, DJ Premier, stop by during our Prodigy tribute show. What we thought would be a 10 minute interview, turned into an hour of reminiscing, great story-telling, laughs and learning things we never knew before about DJ Premier. The full show is available on our website TakeItPersonalRadio.com, as well iTunes, Google Play and all other streaming sites. Don’t forget our 6+ hour DJ Premier Tribute we did a few episodes ago as well. You don’t want to miss this exclusive interview. It’s not often DJ Premier does them, and when he does they’re usually brief, but we managed to extract just enough for this special Prodigy tribute show, and we’re thankful for the opportunity. RIP P! –Jason Gloss
