URP Tuesdays!

Off the Big M and Salazar playlist tonight:

Guru, Lil' Dap & Kai:Bee - The Way It Iz


URP Radio -- Big M & Salazar Edition

We're back earlier than expected! Our tunes warrior, DJ Sage, was taking the night off so it was on us to hold it down this week. All we did was throw down a YouTube DJ set for the ages. No big deal.

We kicked off with a Double Shot from an album that actually came out already but that we didn't get to for some reason, Ghostface Killah's Apollo Kids, courtesy of Def Jam Records. Another solid release from Pretty Toney, but is that really a surprise? There are definitely some gems on this album, which features Method Man, Joell Ortiz, Redman, Raekwon and several more. You never get bored listening to a Ghostface album, that's for sure.

We then accosted the airwaves with everything you can imagine, with a fairly eclectic mix to close out 2010!

The transitions were a little rough but we still dropped some Ghostface, Saukrates, Rascalz, Jeff Spec, Sean Price, Big L, Guru, and even some Lord Tariq & Peter Gunz on ya.

Keep up with us on the Facebook page and on www.URPRadio.Podomatic.com over into the new year!

URP Tuesdays: Saigon The Yardfather

This is it! Last show of 2010!

It's been a very solid year for Hip-Hop releases, don't let the Young Money takeover fool you! Although even that camp had some solid releases. Big up to Drake!

We were joined with an MC who has paid more dues than most in the music business: Saigon. He has found a home with Suburban Noize Records and surrounded himself with quality movers and shakers and as a result, his debut LP will finally see the light of day! The Greatest Story Never Told is scheduled to hit shelves on February 15th, 2011! We discussed this project, which features Just Blaze, Swizz Beatz, Faith Evans, Devin The Dude and many more, as well as his work with Statik Selektah, and of course, why everything that glitters ain't gold. Make sure to check out the interview with the Yardfather in the podcast soon! You can also pre-order The Greatest Story Never Told RIGHT HERE!

We had to fit a lot of chatter into a short period of time tonight, including a Ghostface Killah album comparison, highlights of 2010, and much more. Expect our first show of the new year to be the 2010 retrospective edition of the URP, as there are still some quality releases due out before December is up!

Urban Renewal Project for December 7th 2010 -- DIGGIN' IT!

Once again, it was on and we got right into it by featuring a track from the new Redman - Reggie mixtape, along with the new DJ Premier presents: Year Round Records - Get Used To Us.

Both mixtapes feature a lot of tracks that heavier hip hop heads have already heard, but they are still dope nonetheless. We also came through with our last song of the night and made in a world premiere as we showcased the unreleased Tre Nyce ft. Capone - Money Over Here track. Keep your ears peeled for Tre Nyce as we have it on good authority that BIG THINGS are planned for 2011. We look forward to that.

We got into all sorts of heat blazing the city's speakers with some Joell Ortiz, Redman, Saukrates, Tru Paz and more. Best believe DJ Sage was on point as always. Shoutout to Big M who was missing this week due to injury. He saved a busload of small children from a fire caused by music industry A&Rs who also wielded laser beams and blue-tooth headsets.

Aside from that we did what we did. The URP IS WHO YOU THOUGHT THEY WERE.

As always, stay tuned for the podcasts and have yourselves a sexual Holiday season.

Looks like the URP is on a Christmas break and we will be on hiatus on December 21st and 28th. Sorry but we do this shit for free! What else you want for free?

Here are some links then. Debt. Paid.

Novel ft. Joell Ortiz and Papoose - So Much More
