We got it warmed up tonight by featuring Soulstice's album, Beyond Borders. The album is an international collaboration with MCs from around the world, including a couple Canadian cats! The album is bangin', so don't sleep!
We then spoke to the Chicago MC himself, who is currently in Washington. We discussed everything from current social issues facing North America and the world as a whole, his new international project and artist exposure with the conscious lyricist. We also got into some talk about collaborations, remixes and future touring plans! Hit up iTunes and search Soulstice to check out his work! Keep up to date with him on his MySpace Page!
We were then joined by the incredible duo of Canadian producer Marco Polo and NY MC Torae! This interview touched on everything from the formation of the group and touring, to the creative process that went into making their bangin' album, "Double Barrel". We also got into what music the two were feeling, as well as if Marco Polo being Canadian has rubbed off on Torae in terms of liking maple syrup and hockey, for example! Check out the duo's MySpace page to keep up with all their moves! www.MySpace.com/DoubleBarrel08! Don't sleep on "Double Barrel", out now on Duck Down Records! It's one of the best albums of the year so definitely don't miss it!
The Urban Renewal Project also has to pass along our birthday wishes to the late Tupac Amaru Shakur, who would have been 38 today. We got into a mix of some of 2Pac's best work in his honour.
We also got into a gang of goodness by the likes of Theo 3, Raekwon, Jay Kin, Ghostface Killah, Skyzoo & Maino, Nas, Tona, Marco Polo & Torae, Soulstice and plenty more! Great show!! Download the podcast at www.UrbanRenewalProject.net right now!
