Episode 8 is our Jansport (backpack) special. A tribute to the independent hip-hop movement that helped spawn labels like Fondle ‘Em, Hydra, Rawkus, Stones Throw, Def Jux and ABB records. A time, where the internet played a major role in the music. This era allowed people to DIY, giving them an outlet never had. This movement created dreams, jobs, life-long careers and of course, some amazing music too. Speaking of music, if we covered everything this episode would be 20 hours instead of 2. We picked obscure cuts all the way to classics heard from the late 90s to the early 00s. We got everybody from Mos Def, Company Flow, MF Doom, Murs, Planet Asia, J-Live, Juggaknots, Weatherman, Saukrates, Jigmastas, Cannibal Ox, L-Fudge, Godfather Don, All Natural, Non-Phixon, Cage, Latryx, Mr. Voodoo, K-Otix, and Vakill to name a few. You don’t want to miss this!

Finally, something JJ DOOM-related that doesn’t suck. They should have BBNG remix the whole album.
I don’t even know how to describe this… some sort of ritualistic shamanic wailing accompanied by some sort of ethnic Balkan instrument strumming and then DOOM raps about owls and somehow it actually works.
I completely forgot this particular blend even existed until I somehow randomly stumbled upon it grafted onto the actual video for the original version of the song. Good work all around here, prompting overwhelming nostalgia on multiple levels.
I did this Sade-themed topically stoner-oriented mix for Passion Of The Weiss’ mix series. Included are some awesome rap songs sampling Sade, some chopped & screwed versions of Sade songs, and a few brilliant stony oddities that somehow combine the former with the latter to mind melting results. It all came out pretty awesome if I do say so myself, including the typically awesome cover by John Turner Jr. You should download it and listen to it while smoking like 6 scorpion shaped joints in a row.
There is a much more detailed description of all this on PoW, including the rationale for my selections and why certain things didn’t make the cut. You can read all that HERE. S/O and thanks to my girlfriend Jenna for helping a bit, and to John for the cover, and to Jeff for hosting it.

This is awesomest kinds of rap minutiae. The story of DOOM’s mask, told by its creator Blake Lethem (aka KEO aka SCOTCH 79 aka brother of NY novelist Jonathan Lethem).

And while we’re here, a new leak from JJ DOOM just popped up on Youtube:
