Who is more Renaissance Man than Mr. Derrick Jones? The Human TR-808 gives his most descriptive interview ever. He walks us step by step to the moment of Scott La Rock’s death, and how it affected his relationship with KRS-One. He shares how, after he blew up as a solo artist, everything dried up and he became homeless, broke and depressed. Then rebirth. Web designer, photography, one of the world’s preeminent DJ’s. From peddling drugs to DJing for the President. We’ve heard many stories about one’s journey from the bottom to the top, but if this one doesn’t inspire you, you’re already dead. I know ya’ll keep telling us weekly how the latest episode be your top 5. You need to readjust that list again.
Diggin’ In The Crates co-founder Lord Finesse gives us a history lesson on his days as the Funky Technician, discovering the late great Big L, being a part of the Notorious B.I.G.’s classic ‘Ready To Die’ album, running with Puff, working closely to this day with Dr. Dre and his legal issues with Mac Miller. Of course there’s more to this, so pull up a chair because rap class is in session so you can stop guessing. PLUS, a cameo comeback by Dallas Penn. #Str8Flourishments in effect b.
The Tupac of Baton Rouge was in the building looking so clean. Lil Boosie gives us this exclusive on his seven children, his relationship with Pimp C, Webbie, Bun B and Young Jeezy. How freedom feels after being out over a month. And what kept him sane all them years in jail, and where the “Boosie Fade” came from. He’s doing other interviews, but you already know where his best one is coming from. Wipe me down Internets!
I just stumbled over this awesome mix from the DJ Stretch Armstrong Show with Bobbito & Lord Sear. The 4 hour show in courtesy of DJ Eclipse hosted no other guests than Pete Rock, some of the Fugees and the Roughneck Bastards. The show was broadcasted on November 30, 1995. This stuff is real old school! Enjoy!
Shouts to TrustInWax for this gem!

Finally our biological father Tracy Morgan came by to do Juan Epstein. He was in rare form. I mean what more has to be said? His new special airs Sunday night on Comedy Central at 10 pm and uncensored at 1 am.
Scarface lost 100 pounds. And we’re all over the place in this interview. He plays guitar, he talks drugs and depression and Pink Floyd, he talks about his time in prison, why his son went missing earlier this year, why Rick Ross is underrated and more. He does his best to avoid making controversial statements, but he just can’t help himself. This is Brad Jordan like you’ve never heard before.
What’s in a word? Obviously a lot as far as “nigger” is concerned. The media and politicians say “ban it” but how impossible is it to make the world’s most dangerous word disappear from existence? And do we really know what it means? Hakim Green of Channel Live fame walks us through this black word’s history, it’s etymology, and explains why this word will never go away, and why we should embrace and cherish rather than shun it. Also, Sean C. and L.V. talk their musical history and why we should cop their new album ‘Loud Dreams’ for only $Free Ninety Nine. My lips is like an oowop as I start to spray it.
In the episode we have none other than Ma Dukes, mother of the late great J. Dilla and Brooklyn’s own Talib Kweli. We learn about J. Dilla and his posthumous legacy, his impact on hip hop culture, The J. Dilla Foundation and more.
We also find out about Talib’s new album, why Jean Grae doesn’t fuxs with him right now and why he doesn’t like doing interviews anymore. #DillaLives
The Godfather of this whole damb thing, Rush broke bread reflecting on his time as a gang member, small time drug dealer, how Hip Hop saved his life, why DJ Hollywood should be remembered in the rap history books, why Diddy is the man he his today, Rick Rubin, Lyor Cohen, Dame Dash, how he’s not hung up on the word “nigga”…. so much covered that we had to end it with a lesson in meditation, literally. I’ve seen a lot in my life, but I never thought I’d see the day when a real life rap yogi would be walking us down memory lane.

Lord Jamar talks Brand Nubian, the role that Grand Puba played and how the Nubians were able to create the classic ‘In God We Trust’ album.
