With March winding down, we decided to kick off the show with a Big-M/2Face Al double shot of our favourite tracks from albums released this month. It was a good month for Hip-Hop, with Raekwon, Reks, Lupe Fiasco, Pharoahe Monch, Zion I & The Grouch, Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa dropping albums, among others. It was tough to narrow it down, but we went with Pharoahe Monch's "Clap (One Day)" featuring Showtyme & DJ Boogie Blind and "Race Against Time" by 1982 (Termanology & Statik Selektah) featuring Bun B & Josh Xanthus. Both solid, conscious tracks that are guaranteed to get your head nodding. In case you haven't heard them, check out the URP Facebook Pagee to hear both. Think they suck? Tell us what you were liking in March!
We were then joined by Halifax mainstay, J-Bru. J is currently on a massive Canada-wide tour with veteran Classified, so we appreciate him doing an interview with us right after rocking a set! We discussed the tour, coming up in Halifax and threw some March Madness and Jordan chatter in there as well. We've been giving J-Bru lots of spins lately so if you're not familiar yet, hit him up on Twitter.com/BruPrintMusic, Halfliferecords.ca and shortly on LiveVision.ca. Don't sleep on one of Canada's top MCs!
Make sure you head over to the URP Facebook Page once again to get down on some free DJ Quik and 9th Wonder downloads! Definitely worth a click or two so get on it!
J-Bru, The Roots, Atmosphere, Styles P, Saukrates and JD Era were among the artists that got some burn on the URP tonight. Make sure to keep it locked right here and on www.URPRadio.Podomatic.com for all the latest the Urban Renewal Project has to offer!
