Posse Cuts were front and center when we kicked off tonight's show with the legendary beat battle we've established. We felt we needed to go off the map a bit for this one and avoid picking the obvious choices (The Symphony, Affirmative Action, Scenario, Buddy, etc...) just to switch it up a little bit. The Big M pick of the night was Reservoir Dogs by Jay-Z featuring Sauce Money, Beanie Sigel and The L.O.X., while TwoFaceAl went with Therapy by The Alchemist featuring Blu, Kid Cudi, Talib Kweli and Evidence. Stiff competition... what do you think? We posted both on the URP Facebook Fan Page, let us know!
We also bigged up a fallen soldier all night long with tons of classic tunes. We're referring to the late J Dilla, whose birthday was yesterday, February 7th. Even in a two hour program, we weren't able to get all of his best material in. If you aren't familiar with Dilla, we recommend getting on top of it and buying some of his music or even just scouring YouTube or something to understand just how many artists he blessed with top-notch production.
As has been the case for the past couple of weeks, we're struggling to solve our podcast issues. But until then, keep it locked here and on www.URPRadio.Podomatic because we're close!
