RIOC 72411 Rap Is Outta Control Podcast (24.07.2011)

DJ Eclipse:

Just got back from a Heavy Metal Kings tour with Outerspace, Slaine, Q-Unique & Petey Cologne. Always more fun touring with fam. Below are links from this past Sunday’s show with guests Sadat X & Will Tell who just dropped their album “No Features” which is available digitally.

Below that are links from the previous week’s show with DJ Finesse subbing for me. Shout out to him, Premier & DJ Supa Dave for holding down that show. I haven’t had a chance yet to peep it, but I hear the Guru tribute Finesse did is definitely something to check for (happy belated birthday Guru!).

George Clinton, Snoop Dogg, Missy Elliot. The Treacherous Three, Salt ‘n’ Pepa and a Tribe Called Quest. Whether it’s Afrofuturism or gangster chic, rappers have always placed an emphasis on style. But what does hip-hop’s evolving image tell us about how the genre has changed over the last four decades? Afrika Bambaataa kicks off our audio slideshow by looking at how style plays its part in the genre’s history.
