Part 2 concludes our 8-hour Pete Rock tribute. It was a daunting task to properly celebrate Pete’s astonishing career but after two episodes and 480 minutes of music, we think we got it right. Part 2 focuses more on Pete’s work from the late 90s all the way to today. Besides the solo work, we have music from Rakim, Raekwon, Bumpy Knuckles, Phife Dawg, Black Star, Guru, Ghostface Killah, Ill Bill, Big L, Roc Marciano, The LOX, Redman, Planet Asia, Cormega, Sadat X, Termanology, Grap Luva, Nature, Torae, Smoke DZA, Cypress Hill, De La Soul & Apathy to name a few. Don’t forget, we just relaunched our new website TakeItPersonalRadio.com, where you can stream, download and view all playlists for every episode, including this one. Please join us as we continue to celebrate one of the greatest producers to ever do it – Pete Rock!

Take It Personal Podcast (Ep 4: Wu-Tang Tribute)

Thursday, January 12th, 2017

To many, Staten Island is known as the dump. To us hip-hop heads, it’s known as Shaolin, the home of the Wu-Tang Clan. Who would have thought a group of 9 rappers would have changed the game, but they definitely did. Nobody has ever done hip-hop like WTC and I’m pretty sure nobody ever will. While The Wu is one of the most respected and beloved group of all-time, a two hour tribute doesn’t seem long enough. That said, here is our tribute that should help remind you that Wu-Tang Clan Ain’t Nuthing ta F*ck Wit!

:BOW:
 
The new Mobb album leaked, and somebody graciously liberated this gem from the bonus disc to audiomack. FYI, as twitter friend helpfully pointed out, Ghost’s verse is the same as on the ‘Real Live Shit‘ remix.
 

 
A full stream of the The Infamous Mobb Deep is up on Pandora.
 
EDIT: Head over to Unkut to check out ‘Bridge 94’ as well.
 

Raekwon – Marble Cake (Freestyle)

The “Pound Cake” beat keeps on giving. First Kyleon had a crack at it, and it was good. Then The Lox unexpectedly found some mojo to make one even better. And now Rae has weighed in with some marvelous endlessly equitable shit which is too good not to post. Very nice use of what is perhaps the ultimate Ghost soundbite too.

First there was Yacht Rap, and it was good. Then there was Low Speed Chase, and that was also good. Now comes the next saga in the continuous rap-adventures of Chad. Still aboard Morgengruss X, adrift somewhere in (warm) parts unknown, Mr. Sexington linked up with Messrs. Grizzly and Note of Purple Tape Pedigree/Fresh Out The Box Radio to compile another set of smoothplayalisticyachtmuzik anthems for your enjoyment. So once again, douse the supermodels in Dom Pérignon’52 until their sarongs are see-through and enjoy.

STREAM: Prodigy & Alchemist – Death Sentence Ft. Roc Marciano / R.I.P Ft. Havoc & Raekwon

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.
