URP Radio -- April 7, 2009

What's good?

Every once in a while you just gotta kick back and listen to some music. That's what we did this week on the Urban Renewal Project. No interviews, just the crew and some brew. Sage was spinning everything from Mobb Deep to K-Os, with some Poor Righteous Teachers (RIP Tony D), Zion I, Pharcyde, Richie Cunning, Marco Polo, and tons more sprinkled in between!

We also featured Jadakiss new disc, "The Last Kiss", as our double shot. Sounds dope!
