We got into a much anticipated Double Shot this week, featuring Nas & Damian Marley - "Distinct Relatives". The album has the unfortunate task of living up to the high hopes of fans around the world and delivers as best as possible. It might take a few spins to fully appreciate it, but Nas and Jr. Gong have released an album that will breathe fresh air into mainstream Hip-Hop.
It's a good time to be a Hip-Hop fan in Vancouver as there are a GAMUT of acts playing shows in the city as we move closer and closer to the Summer. Don't miss out on the Straight Skills DJ Competition, Sweatshop Union, Public Enemy, Snak The Ripper, The Scale Breakers, EPMD, Just Blaze, Reflection Eternal and Warren G, among others, all in and around Vancouver. Listen to the podcast for exact dates, or get those digits working and search online.
2Face Al was also challenged by Urban Renewal Project alumni, Needle Kineval, to bust an impromptu conscious freestyle about immigration, oil spills and managed to diss on many different individuals. Hopefully they hear it and try to do something about it.
