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!

Here is a recent show with Jay Electronica, Talib Kweli, Mos Def & P.Diddy all performing “Exhibit C” live. It wasn’t too long ago Puffy was considered a hack rapper and to many the rap anti-Christ. Now he’s embraced by all and is suddenly in his creative zone making music backpackers will soon enjoy. Hip-Hop really is 360. -Philaflava
Statik always brings heat in his production but sometimes his collabos are doing too much. His work with Saigon this year was phenominal so hopefully he continues with that on 100 Proof. Any Termanology fans here? –Philaflava
