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!

Doey Rock + Rae continues to be a winning combination.

This is more bizarre than Eazy-E donating to Daddy Bush’s presidential campaign. When did everyone from the lyrically lyrical abstracterz to the gangsterest-of-gangsters start working for the government……for free? Setting aside the inevitable “Since slavery, dude!!” argument, where is this weirdo shit coming from? If a 2010 Census posse cut results from this bullshit, I’ll puke the colors of Fox News’ programming graphics.
