Take It Personal (Slug of Atmosphere Interview)

Saturday, December 9th, 2017
Share Button

This 2-part Slug interview featured on our Atmosphere tribute show can now be heard in its entirety. We delve into a different side of Sean Daley. We talk Al Franken, ironically, a day before the allegations came out. We talk critics, family, touring, his relationship with ANT outside of the tour bus and studio. We also talk about staying indie, Soundset, DJ Premier, Randy Moss and some crazy stories like the time Rick Rubin was courting them. You don’t want to miss this!

Over the past two decades, Atmosphere has been touring the globe, making music, making fans and one member, especially, making babies. Hailing outta Minneapolis, Slug and Ant aren’t just a group, they’re Minnesota Nice! The slept-on beatmaker and storyteller have accumulated copious amounts of success throughout the years, so it was time Take It Personal took you on a tribute trip down Atmosphere lane. We cover the classics, the obscure, fan favorites and even some collaborations. We promise you, there will never be another Atmosphere tribute quite like this one.

Take It Personal (The Meyhem Lauren Interview)

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!

TIP Interview: Apathy of The Demigodz

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.

Ardamus – Thx4UrHONESTY.[liar]

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.”

Cop (name your price) the new EP here.
