Episode 11, I didn’t think we’d make it after our vainglorious DJ Premier 6-hour tribute, but with some much needed time-off –we’re back. Apathy of The Demigodz joins us, and what was supposed to be a 20 minute interview turned out to be 75 minutes unedited. Ap gets personal with us, holding nothing back, while discussing everything from his come-up, the trials and tribulations of an indie rapper, being courted by Jimmy Iovine, signing with Atlantic records, being a Freemason, his production process, his mental health, his love for Don Mattingly, all the way to his future projects, including his collaboration with O.C., Perestroika. Of course, a Take It Personal episode has to include dopeness, so we’ve included music by Ghostface Killah, Shyheim, Kurious, De La Soul, Black Moon, Fashawn, Open Mike Eagle, Brother Ali and a bunch of slept-on goodies and new heat rocks to keep you entertained. –Jason Gloss

Philaflava: Take It Personal (Passing The Torch)

Sunday, March 12th, 2017
Share Button

 

Episode 7 might sound more like Drink Champs cuz we were highly intoxicated while recording this, but the music, like always, is on point Phife. We don’t necessarily have a theme this show, but we do focus on MC’s making dope music these days. It’s our passing of the torch episode, so-to-speak. We got joints from Your Old Droog, Nick Grant, Apathy, Killer Mike, Action Bronson, Roc Marciano and Milano Constantine to name a few. And it wouldn’t feel right dropping this show on March 9th without paying homage to Biggie, so keep it locked as we try to entertain you once again on Take It Personal.

Longtime rapper and Philaflava board member (btw, boards will be back Tuesday), breaks us off with his newest free release Thx4UrHONESTY.[liar]. No truer words have ever been said of this man than what Ceschi said below.

“Sometimes those people who get the most known are people who kinda step all over others,” says Ceschi Ramos, co-founder of Fake Four Records, which released Thx4UrHONESTY.[liar], “Unfortunately, Ardamus is not as well know, possibly because he’s such a nice guy.”

MIXTAPE: White Gzus – Stackin N Mackin Vol. 3

Monday, August 17th, 2015

Volume 2 is one of my favorite mixtapes of the year and I’m still undecided if Volume 3 tops it (it’s very much a contender). 3 may have the edge by sounding more polished. It feels almost like an album, more focused and better executed than the last installment. Granted, this is a more of an instinctive call than a proper assessment. But listen to the sequence of tracks 11-14 on here (my favorite part), and consider that stretch in the context of this mixtape series as a process of refinement for the group’s aesthetic and sound. This is where they really get their optimal configuration just right.
