A heavy mix of independent hip hop, funk and reggae.
Here’s another Future Flavas show from the collection. It may be the earliest show I have as Marley and Pete had just taken over Future Flavas from KRS-ONE in January of ’95. Lot of joints from their camp played like Sah-B, LOTUG, Heavy D, World Renown and Deda Baby Pa. A nice Marley remix of Brandy Baby right at the top of the show.
Crazy too because this is the episode where they played my O.C. Born 2 Live remix (12:35) and said “got mad calls last week on this joint right here, gotta hit you in your head with it one more time”. I had left a cassette of the remix for Pete at his Soul Brother Records office. Based on the hype created from this show we (Wild Pitch) decided to press promos of the remix to service to DJs.
Yesterday, Pitchfork premiered the music video for Harlem Knights by Cannibal Ox, from the group’s sophomore album Blade of the Ronin. Harlem Knights was shot on-site in Harlem and follows Vast Aire and Vordul Mega through the desolate uptown streets where they were raised. The release of this video marks the first official visual representation of Cannibal Ox since the release of Painkillers from Cannibal Ox’s critically acclaimed 2001 debut The Cold Vein.
The video is directed by Steven Tapia and the track is produced by BILL Cosmiq, who helmed the majority of the production on Blade of the Ronin, which is in stores now.
Cannibal Ox is currently abroad on the Blade of the Ronin European Tour, the group’s first European tour in nearly a decade.
Cannibal Ox will perform in Bristol, UK on July 9th; Birmingham, UK on July 10th; Glasgow on July 11th; Leeds, UK on July 12th; Brighton, UK on July 14th; London, UK on July 15th; Dour Festival in Belgium on July 17th; and Paris on July 18th.
Today we have a track I stumbled upon a day ago, with a dope beat called On & On, from underground Atlanta group Yall So Stupid. Formed by H2O, Unkle Buk, Sha Boogie, Spearhead X and Logic in 1991.
After extensive performance in Atlanta’s underground circuit, they were signed by Dallas Austin & L.A. Reid to Rowdy Records in 1992. Their debut album Van Full of Pakistans, was released on May 25, 1993. The group was released from their label that same year.
Produced by Sylvan Sargeant
Pittsburgh Steel City Hip Hop representative Zooka Joe will be dropping his long awaited debut album with Brooklyns legendary beatsmith Domingo behind the boards on August 4, 2015 thru Deranged Music. The album titled A.K.A Zooka Joe is packed with a punch of that Hip Hop that has been missing in the game for a while.
A.K.A Zooka Joe also features Chris Rivers, Nutso and the man himself Kool G Rap who is featured on the song Done Different and as usual Kool G Rap does not disappoint with Zooka Joe holding his ground on this gritty bouncing street anthem.
