URP Radio -- June 21, 2011 -- Dusty Trails

Since the Urban Renewal Project is going in a new direction, separate from Co-Op Radio, we figured we'd go out with a bang and drop a TRIPLE SHOT on the people. The first two tracks were from Random Axe's LP, "Karate Kid" and "Everybody Nobody Somebody". Both go hard and if you're fans of any one of Sean Price, Guilty Simpson or Black Milk, you'll like this album very much. We also got into a track from a couple weeks ago that we slept on from Termanology's Cameo King II, ST Salute featuring Ea$y Money and H Blanco. Crazy track and the album is definitely worth checking out. Show Off!

We played a ton of tracks tonight, including cuts from Vast Aire, J. Cole, Artifacts, and 2Pac, whose birthday was June 16th. We also discovered (stay with me here) the human version of Louie Anderson's cartoon character from Life With Louie.. Weird, right?

Since this is the last program of the Co-Op Radio version of the URP, we'd like to thank Co-Op Radio for years of support and the opportunity to spread great music to the city of Vancouver and beyond. Do not hesitate to become a Co-Op Member and become a part of Vancouver's most diverse radio station!

URP Radio -- June 14, 2011 -- Crunch Time

As everything else in the city of Vancouver this week, the Urban Renewal Project is operating in the shade cast by Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals. One more win will send Vancity into an absolute frenzy, so consider tonight's show the warm-up! We put it together after the Double Shot, but we actually selected a Boston artist to feature this week. FOL. However, regardless of where Termanology hails from, there's no denying the quality of Cameo King II. The usual suspects are present on this record; Statik Selektah, Freeway, Joell Ortiz, Bun B, Slaine and many, many more make appearances as every track features at least one artist. Check it out, and remember to support the real

We played a ton of tunes tonight from the likes of Shad, Sean Price, Pacewon & Mr. Green, Elzhi, Action Bronson, Nas and more. Check out that new Nas if you haven't already!

URP Tuesdays -- June 7th, 2011 -- Randominium!

Once again it's on!

We pretty much got right into it, not only providing more scintillating conversation than Jeff Goldblum, but also the absolute best in Hip-Hop. Instead of doing a beat battle or double shot, we rocked the new Random Axe single, "Chewbacca". In other news, the name "Chewbacca" still receives the dreaded squiggly red typo line when typed in a Blogspot text box. This is a travesty, especially since I'm planning to name my second, fourth and twelfth child Chewbacca :-(. Anyhow, the Random Axe LP drops a week from today and we are all rather pumped on that fact.

We were also feeling the fact that Summer finally seems to be on its way to Vancouver. Better late than never, right? Thanks, Mother Nature. I guess you were busy reigning absolute terror on Asia, South America and the Caribbean. However, in all seriousness, people need to stop complaining about poor weather or the lack of sunshine we are getting here in North America, when millions of people have been killed, injured and displaced around the world because of natural disasters. Donate a few bucks to relief efforts and help your fellow man, even if it means having a couple less 8 dollar cups of coffee.

We got into a ton of nice tunes for the nice weather, including a ton of DJ Quik, Fresh Prince, Rascalz, Rich Kidd and much, much more. Also hit up the URP Facebook page and LIKE us! Downloads, newsbits, and of course, scintillating conversation are the norm over at the Urban Renewal Project. Follow us on Twitter while you're at it!
