URP Radio -- Tuesday November 25th

What's good?

This week was a bit of a throwback to our old format, when our show would only run for 2 hours instead of the 3 hours of madness we've been bringing you lately. The reason for this is that we hit up Republic to check out Peanut Butter Wolf's world renown DJ/VJ set. We'll be the first to tell you that he did not disappoint. The spot was rockin and everyone was having a great time. If PB Wolf is in your area, do not hesitate to check him out!

Other than that, we featured Ludacris' new album, Theater Of The Mind. Overall, this album wasn't blowing us away but it is alright for such a commercial release. There's obviously some club friendly tracks, mixed in with a bit of filler and a couple of gems. One of these being the DJ Premier-produced track, MVP. You already know how we feel about this track if you listen to the show though (Hint: it's sick). Overall though, I would call the album a disappointment.

We also got into some new stuff from K'Naan and Snak The Ripper & Young Sin, as well as some classics from Peanut Butter Wolf and Rasco, among a whole lot of other heat. Download the podcast RIGHT HERE to check it out.

Peace til next week!

DJ Premier talks Luda

Ludacris is in DJ Premier's top 20 MCs? I wouldn't have guessed it but here it is! This clip shows DJ Premier and Ludacris hard at work putting down tracks for Luda's upcoming album, Theater Of The Mind. It drops next Tuesday and should be a banger. The track "MVP" is produced by Premier and is a certified heavy hitter.

Snak The Ripper, Young Sin, Fatt Matt & D-Rec live in on the Urban Renewal Project

Big show on Tuesday... Not only did we have phone interviews with Sammy Bananas and Double-O from Kidz In The Hall, we were also joined live by some of Vancity's finest in the form of Snak The Ripper, Young Sin, Fatt Matt & D-Rec. The boys talked about what's next for them, and dropped a few live freestyles. Big!

Jam packed show this week... not only did our Statik Selektah interview come through, we were also joined by Royce da 5'9! Nickel nine phoned in from the studio, where he was recording for an upcoming project with Joell Ortiz, Joe Budden and Crooked I... should be good!
