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!

Jay Electronica Needs Alcoholics Anonymous

At this point I don’t even know if we’ll ever hear that Roc-A-Fella album, but I do know if Jay doesn’t get some help soon, he is going to end up completely irrelevant. There was a point where you’d mention him along the greats like Black Thought, Andre, Jay and Nas, but it’s becoming sad now. Nobody wants to see this dude turn Greg Oden on us, but he got too popular, too rich, too quick. Clearly he isn’t on that Rothchild tit anymore but drunken Jay Elec is doing more harm than good these days on social media. –Philaflava


10 Reasons Why Childish Gambino Is Better Than Drake

Freaks and Geeks from Donald Glover on Vimeo.

A few weeks ago I caught the video Freaks And Geeks and was really impressed by the talents of Donald Glover, actor, comedian and rapper. Don’t get it twisted though, he’s been rapping longer than he’s been doing his Community thing. Troy Barnes maybe the only thing you know him as, but Childish Gambino (his moniker came from Wu-Tang name generator) is somebody you should definitely watch out for. –Philaflava

10 Reasons Why Childish Gambino Is Better Than Drake

10. Because he does Drake better than Drake and doesn’t even need auto-tune.
9. Because he has been rapping waaaaaaaaaay longer than he was doing sitcoms (like Drake).
8. Because he dropped his first album in 2008, while Drake dropped his in 2010.
7. Because he you can tell he is very serious about his craft and sincere about his lyrics. He may swag it up, but there is just as much swag as there is self-deprecation going on.
6. Because he knows who Odd Future is and likes them!
5. Because Drake is so damn easy to hate.
4. Because the name Donald Glover doesn’t sound a faggy as Aubrey Graham.
3. Because he is the closest we’ll ever get to being near Alison Brie’s sweater puppies.
2. Because he is a much better actor than Drake. Community > Degrassi all damn day.
1. Because he isn’t Canadian.

Drake – The Emcee

While debut album Thank Me Later may have been one of the more heralded releases in the hip-hop universe this year, it also signaled Drake’s complete upheaval away from rap and towards R&B. From his search for hip-hop credibility on Room for Improvement, to his neo-soul sensibilities on Comeback Season and culminating in the R&B-fused So Far Gone, the chameleonic rapper’s mixtapes have charted his change in style on a yearly basis. Unknown to those who became aware of the artist only after break-out single “Best I Ever Had,” So Far Gone was met with some dismay by a selection of Drake fans. (more…)
