URP Radio -- November 30, 2010 -- Vantastic!

We're back again, after a one-week hiatus!

We didn't miss a beat this week, other than the fact we didn't do a Double Shot. We just got right into the music and let the music speak for itself! Props to anyone who checked out J. Cole at Fortune Sound Club last Tuesday (November 23rd). Respect to Vancouver MC, Son Real, who held it down as the shows opener as well. If you didn't go, you missed out!

Vancouver's own MC collective, Elekwent Folk, also joined us in our return to the airwaves tonight. They are taking their local Vantastic event on the road and over the water to Victoria this time around, so if you're one of the many Hip-Hop addicts over on Vancouver Island, make sure you come out and show your love! Moka Only, Panther, Headspace, The Elekwent Folk and more will be taking the stage on Tuesday, December 7th at Lucky Bar in Victoria. Get all the information on the Vantastic: Live In Victoria event page on Facebook!

Plenty of good music tonight, including a live jam from the Elekwent Folk. We also got into tracks from Anami Vice, Jay Kin, Clipse, Son Real, J. Cole and many more... Stay tuned for this podcast and our last one as well, right here on the URP Blog and on www.URPRadio.Podomatic.com.

Also, we must pay our respects to a fallen Canadian comedy legend, Leslie Nielsen, who passed away from Pneumonia on November 28th, 2010. Hs street credibility was also through the roof, as he made movies with OJ Simpson. He went peacefully, in his sleep.

R.I.P. Leslie Nielsen (February 11, 1926 - November 28, 2010)

One Week Hiatus

No URP this week. The team is heading to the J. Cole show at Fortune Sound Club and as a result, we will be unable to rock your eardrums tonight. We'll be back with a full review of the show next week!

URP Tuesdays - RIP ODB

We kicked it off with a Double Shot courtesy of Wu-Tang Clan member, Masta Killa. The album is entitled "Wu-Tang: The Next Chamber" and has a lot of rarities, as well as some cuts we haven't heard. The man who we credit for pulling the Wu back together with his solo debut, "No Said Date", has another solid release under his belt even though not all the tracks are new. Features include GZA, RZA, Raekwon, Pete Rock, Timbo King, Prodigal Sunn, RA The Rugged Man and Killah Priest. Check it!

We got into tons of good music, including a brief Ol' Dirty Bastard tribute. November 13th was the 6th anniversary of the most recognizable Wu-Tang member's passing. Check out the Urban Renewal Project on Facebook for the official video for Raekwon's tribute track, "Ason Jones". We also played some Kanye West, Common, Dr. Dre, Warren G, Joe Budden, Alex Dimez, Moka Only and many more!

URP Tuesdays -- Anami Vice

Unfortunately, we didn't have time to get into a Double Shot tonight, but that's not to say that there weren't some good releases. Cee-Lo, Zion I, Eligh, Kid Cudi and Lord Jamar all dropped some material for the masses so do not sleep!

We were joined by an up-and-comer by the name of Anami Vice, who is coming with some refreshing, hearable and digestable material that draws some comparisons to Devin The Dude (courtesy of DJ Sage). Make sure you head over to www.AnamiVice.com and check out some of his tunes ASAP! Anami will be rocking at Bar None in the Yaletown area of Vancouver along with Okay City and more, so you have a chance to see him first-hand! Don't sleep!

Plenty of good talk tonight as well as the usual incredible music selection, including Anami Vice, Reks, Kanye featuring Pete Rock and Jay-Z, Talib Kweli, Freeway and many more. Check out the podcast shortly on www.URPRadio.Podomatic.com and right here on the URP blog!


URP Radio -- November 2, 2010 -- PODCAST

As promised, here's last Tuesday's podcast! Still working on the two previous weeks, don't worry! For now, enjoy the Devin The Dude double shot, the chat with Fortunato of Angerville, and as always, the great music.

URP Tuesdays -- Angerville in the spot!

Another Tuesday is in the books!

We kicked off with a Double Shot from Devin The Dude's new album, Gotta Be Me, courtesy of Real Talk Entertainment. You know what to expect from Devin... laid back, everyman rhymes about the finer things in life. This album is no different and Devin fans will not be disappointed with his latest effort. Make sure you check out the album from one of the good guys in Hip-Hop!

We were then joined live in studio by Fortunato, one half of the Toronto-based duo, Angerville. The team has been making moves and has been in the Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island and Fortunato was good enough to stop by the station tonight and chop it up with us about the pros and cons of being an artist, collaborations from province-to-province and what's on the horizon for Angerville! Check them out at www.Angerville.tv ASAP and keep up with all things Angerville.

Plenty of tracks from Marco Polo, Angerville, Jeff Spec & Moka Only, The Beatnuts, Devin the Dude and more found their way into the mix tonight. On fire! Co-Op Radio's audio logger is also back in business, so expect the last two podcasts to be up ASAP on www.URPRadio.Blogspot.com and www.URPRadio.Podomatic.com soon, as well as this week's!
