Broadcast on location from an extremely active derelict 19th Century factory grounds – on this epic six hour journey into darkness we have:
Ill Bill joins us for a feature-length interview to discuss his new project with Vinnie Paz, Heavy Metal Kings coming in 2011. We discuss the aesthetics of the album as well as exploring his relationship with brother Necro in 2010 and his upcoming project with Sean Price, entitled The Pill. In addition to all of this, Ill Bill suggests that there may well be a reunion between underground hip hop icons Non Phixion, including Goretex, for a tour and possible future album work. A must hear for all hip hop fans worldwide.
Joell Ortiz is the man of the moment. In this frenetic and entertaining interview, we discuss and dispel the numerous accusations and rumours surrounding his involvement with Slaughterhouse, Joe Budden and their forthcoming signing to Shady Records. As well as divulging information about Eminem’s new 2011 album, including a new track he is recording at the moment with Royce and Slaughterhouse, Joell explores the possibilities once his Free Agent album drops and he is a personification of its title. We talk future collaborations including his track on the new Kool G Rap album and his inclusion on Pharoahe Monch’s long-awaited project.
Twista has had one of the most prolific and long-lasting careers in urban music. With his new album, Perfect Storm, around the corner and a feature-length documentary being filmed based upon his life by Big Punisher film-maker Vlad Yudin, Twista has a lot to look forward to. In this interview we go deeper than the average and debate the importance of change within society, recognising how the words rappers utter into microphones can do more than simply make heads bop. We talk Obama, Wocka Flocka and more in a concentrated effort on all parties.
Chuck D is one of the most active men in hip hop. Fresh from a massively successful Public Enemy US tour, Chuck finds time to join us for a typically intense and thought-evoking discussion about the digital revolution within hip hop, the importance of his forthcoming South Africa tour, the difference between truly great hip hop “artists” and rappers and much more in this inspiring 40 minutes with an icon.
