On this thunderclap-ridden opus of a show we have:
Jedi Mind Tricks messenger and underground hip hop saviour, Vinnie Paz, takes a rare but lengthy step away from making his new album with Ill Bill, to explain the science of his recent release. We dissect the album piece by piece, from his Cohen Brothers -inspired artwork, to the pains of having to drop tracks due to ignorant artists and sample clearance. Will there be another Jedi Mind Tricks album any time soon? Listen and find out.
Pharoahe Monch steps in to proudly announce the details of his new album W.A.R., released on Duckdown Records on September 14th. This is as careful and methodical as you would expect from hip hop’s most diligent vocalist. We explore wider socio-political issues such as the Oscar Grant case, Pharoahe’s awe and admiration of the Duckdown team and artists and much more in an in-depth, 30 minute excavation of knowledge. Hip hop don’t miss this.
Black Milk is a traveling man. He has an album entitled ‘Album Of The Year’ set to drop on September 14th and is with us on the show to explore the Detroit hip hop scene, the demise of Slum Village as a group and much more in a lively and awe-inspiring chat with hip hop’s most electric. We hear of his passion to work with D12 and how, despite having the opportunity, he didn’t submit beats for Eminem’s Recovery album.
King Magnetic drive in, free hard copies of his album/mixtape in hand to give away to listeners who can answer the question he sets. *This competition will be open until July 23rd*. We discuss the imminent might of his solo album, the reception he receives from the hip hop community and his plans to expand his ever-growning and ever-changing fanbase in 2011.
