Our theme for this week's Beat Battle revolves around the songs about the ladies. We're not talking about throwing an R. Kelly (no disrespect) type crooner and spitting elementary rhymes about fat kids and cakes. We're referring to those tracks that you aren't embarrassed to bump while you're by yourself in the car or on the train. Our choices were pretty obvious, but the tracks were too dope to overlook. You probably could have guessed 'Renee' by The Lost Boyz, as well as 'You're All I Need' by Method Man f/ Mary J Blige, but hey, at least it gives us an opportunity to play these classics on a Tuesday night. Honorable mention to Mos Def's 'Ms. Fat Booty', Masta Ace's 'Brooklyn Masala' and half of LL Cool J's entire catalogue.
With the womanly theme fresh in our minds, we were joined by Brooklyn duo, M-Tri and Leecy T. She's the DJ, he's the rapper. M-Tri also works with The Sleepwalkas, whose recent single, 'Rhyme Flow' featuring Sadat X, was near the top of our 2010 charts. The duo breathe some true school air into the game, with as much chemistry as any DJ-MC combos we have ever heard. Make sure to listen to the interview and HIT UP THE OFFICIAL WEBSITE RIGHT HERE!
What do DJ Kool Herc's health, the Diddy and a pervert "accidentally" falling into jogging women's posteriors have in common? We discussed all of them on tonights edition of the Urban Renewal Project. Throw in some tracks from Nas, The Sleepwalkas, J. Cole, DL Incognito and Theo 3 and you got yourself a pretty damn good Hip-Hop radio show. Keep it locked here and www.URPRadio.Podomatic.com because we promise to have the freakin' podcasts back in effect real soon!
