Blackout Top News

Here’s the latest episode of Hot 97’s Juan Epstein show, featuring guests Elliott YN Wilson and B.Dot of Rap Radar. Peter Rosenberg and Cipha Sounds chop it up with the guys about YN’s recent ventures, the Rap Internets, the local rap scene and much, much more.

One of the biggest talking points of the debate was B.Dot’s argument that New York DJs don’t break records like they used to, which prompted Ebro to join the conversation (highlighted in the video above and can be found at the 50-minute mark in the Soundcloud stream) and break down how commercial radio works.

On October 10th, 1995 the rap world was blessed with a classic album from Brooklyn, NY’s legendary lyricist AZ.

Starting his career off by spitting a 16-bar verse of fire on Nas’ “Life’s A Bitch” cut off his epic debut album, Illmatic, AZ was engulfed in a bidding war for his MC services. Landing with EMI Records in 1995, he released his debut album with the club/radio hit, “Sugar Hill”.

With a stint as the co-D to Nas in Dr. Dre’s super group The Firm, AZ has gone on to make 9 (yes, 9!) solo albums. Check his resume and watch the clip to see if his 10th album, the upcoming Doe or Die 2, will be his last.
