6+ Hour Prodigy (Mobb Deep) Tribute Show

After our 6+ hour DJ Premier show, we swore we were done with tributes for a while. Then, on June 20th, hip-hop suffered another tremendous loss. We usually celebrate the careers of the artists we do tributes on, but in this show, we wanted to celebrate the life of Albert “Prodigy” Johnson as well. Like the Preem tribute, this was no easy feat. Prodigy’s career was remarkable filled with longevity and a ridiculously extensive catalog. He started making music as a teen and went out doing exactly what he loved at aged 42. This tribute was an emotional one, and we know many of you will get to re-live moments when you first heard these Mobb classics. If there is one thing our listeners should know by now about Take It Personal, it’s that we take it SERIOUSLY!

We have 5 extraordinary guests, each one sharing unique, personal stories about Prodigy. Shouts out to DJ Premier, Bonz Malone, Meyhem Lauren, Domingo and Ras Kass for being a huge part of this proper send-off. You all helped make this a masterpiece.

And since this is another 6+ hour one, we decided to break it up into two parts. Please make sure you listen to it in its entirety- I promise, you don’t want to miss anything our guests had to say or any of the joints we played. P may be gone, but his music lives forever. RIP P!

Take It Personal – Exclusive DJ Premier Interview

We were fortunate enough to have the greatest producer of all-time, DJ Premier, stop by during our Prodigy tribute show. What we thought would be a 10 minute interview, turned into an hour of reminiscing, great story-telling, laughs and learning things we never knew before about DJ Premier. The full show is available on our website TakeItPersonalRadio.com, as well iTunes, Google Play and all other streaming sites. Don’t forget our 6+ hour DJ Premier Tribute we did a few episodes ago as well. You don’t want to miss this exclusive interview. It’s not often DJ Premier does them, and when he does they’re usually brief, but we managed to extract just enough for this special Prodigy tribute show, and we’re thankful for the opportunity. RIP P! –Jason Gloss

Poot! Gotta love Wire regulars making random cameos in rap videos.
 
Who knows what the new Mobb Deep album will bring, but at least we’ll always have Prodigy’s two excellent albums with Alchemist to remember his twilight years by. Well that and his all-caps blog posts.

Ripped from Pandora’s clean stream of Albert Einstein, but good enough to get the point across. The pairing of P & Marci has been a long time coming. It just feels right – consider the traces of Mobb Deep’s influence in the stark minimalism of Marcberg, and Return Of The Mac‘s role as a precursor to the more expansive but drum-lite sound of Reloaded. Figure in Marciano’s own collaborations with Alchemist, and you start to see pieces that were meant to be put together all along. And then of course Rae + Mobb Deep is pretty much a foregone conclusion, especially with Alchemist’s current psychedelic renaissance propping it up.
