December 15th -- HIGHLIGHTS

I couldn't find any clips of the J.J. Brown tracks we played, so just check out the "Connect The Dots" album! It's a monster! And now, on with the weekly highlights.

Souls Of Mischief - You Got It

Choclair - 21 Years

Royce Da 5'9 f/ Phonte - Something 2 Ride 2

Kardinal Offishall f/ Darryl Riley - We Gon Go

OC - Time's Up

December 15, 2009 -- PODCAST

We kicked off with a Double Shot from J.J. Brown's new album, "Connect The Dots" on Well Done Entertainment. Coming out of Philly, J.J. has dropped a very jazzy disc with a throwback feel. Features include Reef The Lost Cauze, Eternia, Block McCloud, Louis Logic, Celph Titled and many more. Make sure you check this album out, although you'll probably have to head online to find it.

We were then joined by Canadian Hip-Hop stalwart, the one and only Choclair. He's been putting it down for a minute, so we had a lot to discuss about the come-up, his relationship with DJ Premier, how to make a girl feel special during the holiday season and what's next for Chiznock. Check him out on Facebook to keep up to date with all his moves!

Unfortunately, the interview with big shot Bangs didn't work out, due to something on his end. He was probably caught up in the popcorn line at the theater. Oh well.

We had some more time to play a lot of great music, including an all-Choclair set which brought back a lot of memories! We also had some KRS-One & Buckshot, Souls Of Mischief, O.C., Common, Chen Lo and more!

December 8th HIGHLIGHTS

Here's what I thought were a few of the many highlights of the December 8th show...

OC & Big L - Dangerous

Clipse - Freedom

A Tribe Called Quest - Jam

Fly Gypsy - 2 Step f/ Kanye West


URP Radio -- December 8th, 2009 -- PODCAST!

Cot damn it's cold!

We started out by featuring the much anticipated Clipse album, "Til The Casket Drops", which is available now on Sony. The track with Cam'Ron, Popular Demand, is in heavy rotation on the URP as well as many other media outlets and we should be hearing a lot more from the Virginia duo in the months to come. Check out "Freedom", the track is crazy!

We were then joined by up and coming producer/rapper Rich Kidd, who's been working with the likes of Kardinal Offishall, Saukrates, Busta Rhymes, Billy Danze and a host of others and is really making waves these days. We discussed how this young artist got into hip-hop, his many collaborations, his creative process and the Canadian Hip-Hop classics. Check him out at ASAP!

We also weighed in on some turkeys in the sports world, with Tiger Woods, Mike Vick and DeLonte West topping the list, among others. This week marked the return of O-Dog after a month long hiatus due to travel, sickness, and debauchery.

Make sure you check out the podcast by CLICKING HERE! Tons of Canadian content, plus jams from the Wu, Tribe, Statik Selektah, The Beatnuts, Big L & OC and plenty more!

URP Radio -- Dec 1st, 2009 -- Podcast!

It's beginning to look a lot like... URP Radio!

We started off with a Double Shot from the brand new Souls Of Mischief album, which features back and forth verses from MCs: A-Plus, Phesto, Opio, Tajai and prduction from Prince Paul and Domino. "Montezuma's Revenge" is available now, courtesy of Hiero Imperial. Much like the rest of the Souls catalog, this one doesn't disappoint and brings some classic Oakland sound to the 4th quarter of '09. If you've been down with the Hieroglyphics since the early 1990's, this will be a welcome addition to your album collection.

We were then joined by Vancity mainstay, Emotionz. He let us know what's up with Monday Night Live as well as the various other gigs he's promoting and hosting. Stay tuned for the video release party for his track "Dear God (100 Bars)" from his latest album, “Kush!” Hit him up at or look him up on Facebook for all the intel on this and much more!

We also brought back the legendary "Flip The Tune" segment this week, after a jam packed show last week. This week's contestants were Black Moon's "2 Turntables & A Microphone" and "Buddy" by De La Soul. Who will win?
