PODCAST -- November 24, 2009 -- Camp Lo interview!

This is it what!

We started off by featuring a couple tracks from the new A.G. & O.C. album, "Oasis" on Nature Sounds. This is one that was heavily anticipated by the Urban Renewal Project crew and it is a quality disc just as we expected. If you know what's up with Diggin' In The Crates, you won't wanna miss this album. These two MCs have been on the top of their game as long as I can remember and they keep it up on this one. Do it!

We kept our month of epic guests rolling tonight with the legendary Bronx duo, Camp Lo. We were first by Sonny Cheeba and then by Geechi Suede. We discussed their original merger, the parental influence on their eclectic music and their new album "Another Heist". We also tried to pry some info from Suede about some new projects that are in the works, but plans have to be kept under wraps for the time being. They involve some big producers though, so stay tuned! Keep up to date with Camp Lo at

There was a lot of great music being played tonight as well as a fair share of venting. Make sure you check out the podcast, BY CLICKING HERE.

We are also in the middle of our pledge drive at Co-Op radio, which means we are taking donations, however small or large they may be. Just visit and donate, but don't forget to specify the Urban Renewal Project as the show you'd like to contribute to!

Some Wu stuff, why not?

I'm getting a little hyped up off this Wu-Tang Meets Dubstep remix album. Here's a track, to get an idea of what to expect from it

Love Don't Cost A Thing/Still Grimey (Nebulla & Dore Remix)

And now some more traditional Wu... although it's a little different with the Chop&Screwed hook.. but hey, the blaxploitation-esque video and sound is doing it for me...

U-God & Method Man - Wu-Tang

November 17, 2009 -- HIGHLIGHTS!

Some standout tracks from this week's URP Radio show... let me just say that it's safe to say that Kurupt is back to being an absolute monster...

Kurupt & DJ Crazy Toones - 2 Turntalbes & A Microphone

Krondon - The Rules/Thin Minutes

Chen Lo f/ Raphael Smith - Give It All Up

Ol' Dirty Bastard - Say No

Who Flipped It Better?

DJ Quik - Get At Me (Safe + Sound)


Brand Nubian - Brand Nubian (One For All)

November 17, 2009 -- Strong Arm Steady!

Back once again after a brief one-week hiatus!

We got back into it by featuring (and yes, this was a surprise to me), 50 Cent's "Before I Self Destruct" in our Double Shot. The album actually has a full-circle feel to it, despite the few obvious bubblegum tracks. It also comes with a tribute DVD to Jam Master Jay, so that's gotta be worth something.

A bunch of hot music was then spun, and we got into an interview with Krondon and Phil Da Agony from the West Coast supergroup, Strong Arm Steady. Phil & Kron discussed the work that's gone into their new albums, "Arms & Hammers" and "Stoney Jackson", both due out on the legendary Stones Throw Records. We also discussed Madlib, clothing deals and the various ways that SAS are connected with the Vancouver scene. Check out the SAS gang at for all the latest news on the West Coast trio.

We were joined by Craig Mac who is doing big things for Hip-Hop in the Lower Mainland in terms of organizing shows in Vancouver and Whistler, so hit up as well as anywhere fine tickets are sold!

We also got into yet another installment of "Who Flipped It Better?", or "Flip the Tune", or "Who Used a Particular Sample for a Song better", whatever you want to call it. Either way, the concept is simple. We get into two tracks that both use the same sample. This week, the contestants were DJ Quik - "Get At Me" from Safe + Sound and Brand Nubian - "Brand Nubian" from One For All. Who do you think killed the track?

We started off with a Double Shot from BeKay's debut album, "Hunger Pains", which is available and recommend for next week on Coalmine Records. We had the privilege of interviewing the NY emcee a couple weeks ago, when he busted out a crazy new acapella. We kept it moving by playing a couple cuts off his album, which features the likes of Illmind, Marco Polo, R.A. The Rugged Man, Masta Ace, Heltah Skeltah, Inspectah Deck and many more. Don't sleep on this one, and hit Bekay up at!

We were then joined by Queensbridge legend, the one and only Cormega. We got into discussion about his new album, "Born & Raised", upcoming videos, loyalty to the fans and the artform of Hip-Hop and why it's important to be interactive! Check Cormega at for all the latest and the chance to chat online to the QB veteran!

Unfortunately, our Strong Arm Steady has been postponed to November 17th. Better late than never though, right? Instead, we launched into a segment we've been getting off the ground, "Who Flipped It Better?”. This week's contestants were Show & A.G. - You Know Now (Buckwild remix) and Heltah Skeltah - Letha Brainz Blow. We aren't going to reveal the winner here in the blog, so check out the podcast to hear the results!
