On episode 28, we discuss beef. Today’s beef ain’t what it used to be, so like Biggie said “What’s beef?” Pusha T vs. Drake is fun, but we remind you of when these battles meant something. And speaking of reminding, it’s time we remind everyone that Black Thought being a top 5 is no longer up for discussion. Seasons change mad things rearrange and with this summer heat we had to lace you with classics from Naughty By Nature, Heavy D, Slum Village, O.C., Main Source, Cypress Hill, KMD, Jay-Z, Big Daddy Kane and you know no TIP episode is complete without a DJ 360 remix! We also have new joints from Pusha T, Black Thought, J. Cole, Forever M.C. and an exclusive by Vanderslice & Conway.

Producer extraordinaire and professional feelings hurter, Vanderslice also stops by to talk about his upcoming album The Best Album Money Can Buy and to debut of our new segment – The Happy Recap w/Vanderslice. This is the start of summer and Take It Personal plans to keep you entertained all throughout. Grab your drinks, smokes and if you’re sweating profusely, then grab some ice cubes and rub them all over like Mookie did to Tina. Just make sure you listen to episode 28 on blast and preferably on repeat too!

Episode 25 was a dream come true for us. If you’ve listened to our Wu-Tang, DJ Premier, Prodigy, Atmosphere and Pete Rock tribute shows, you know we’re like Steady B and take these tributes seriously. On this 5+ hour tribute, we take you back to the days of Boogie Down Production all the way to the Blastmaster of today. We sprinkle in boom bap classics, underground anthems, guest appearances, remixes and personal favorites throughout this musical journey. It’s sometimes easy to forget greatness, but after this episode, we’re certain everyone will remember just how important, influential and accomplished KRS-One is. We’re also certain after listening, it’s going to be difficult not to reconsider your greatest MC’s rankings. We have a brand new website TakeItPersonalRadio.com where you can stream, download and view playlists for every episode we release. Enjoy our KRS-One tribute and keep real hip-hop alive!

Pete Rock Tribute + Interview

Episode 24 was an idea we had for a while. We all said Pete Rock deserves a proper tribute, so we’re proud to finally present the first of two installments of this Soul Brother #1 tribute. If you had asked us a little over a year ago when we started Take It Personal, that we’d have two of the greatest producers of all-time as our guests, we wouldn’t have believed it. This is truly a case of dreams becoming reality. It was an honor celebrating Pete Rock’s distinguished catalog and even a bigger honor having him as a guest on our show. We talk with Pete about Heavy D, DJ Premier, De La Soul, Dilla, Redman, Kanye all the way to his top 5 producers. He shared his thoughts on drumless beats these days. We even get the answer to a possible CL Smooth reunion. Please join us as we celebrate one of the greatest producers to ever do it – Pete Rock!

Episode 16 is the 3rd installment of our West Coast Classic series. We thought a trilogy would work, but there is just so much to cover that we’ll be blessing you with WCC IV in a few weeks. On this show we have tributes to N.W.A., 2Pac and Golden State Warriors (Ras Kass, Saafir & Xzibit). We also have classics from Compton’s Most Wanted, Da Lench Mob, DJ Quik, Spice 1, J5, Mac Mall, Kam, E-A-Ski, People Under The Stairs, Threat, Above The Law, Kendrick Lamar, Tash, Brotha Lynch Hung and Warren G to name a few. We plan to drop part IV real soon, so make sure you catch up to all 3 installments first. We hope this goes down as one of the most complete and entertaining tributes ever assembled of West Coast hip-hop.

Take It Personal Podcast (Ep 8: Indie Hip-Hop Tribute)

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!
