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!

The artist formerly known as having a “monk” in his name says:
Here’s a video I made for one of my newer songs. It’s along the lines of Surface Sincerity, and consists entirely of Creative Commons-licensed footage. I’m pretty happy with how it turned out. If you like it, please help me spread the word
Bomarr takes it super-synth status. This is what RJD2 wants to make, but never does.
As a little addendum to the previous Blueprint post, here’s an unreleased Soul Position track courtesy of RJD2’s own site.
