Got another week of my sister Teisha Marie on the mic hosting another all-ladies show. Word up.
We got my "baby" sister, recording artist Teisha Marie, fresh back from London hosting for ya on this month's Grime episode.
Hip-Hop originally was a collage of music...it's why I fell in love with the music. That's what this episode is about.
No theme. No problem. Still got that curated rap from every area and every era. Took a second to ruminate on the cycle of the rap album.
Listening to that Joey Bada$$ got me thinking on how much the rap world done changed. After Planet Rock was released it was abnormal to hear live instruments on a rap track. Now it's abnormal to hear a song with "just drums."
Back at ya w/some more of those Grime sounds.
E'ry once in awhile I wanna hear lyrics...don't you?
I been listening to a lot of what these people are trying to call Afrobashment so I just had to make a mix of what I'm listening to. Ya dig.
Shu got me all homesick. So I had to dedicated an episode to Top of the Clock.
Japan is the third largest Rap market, yet because of the language barrier few of us know anything about that...and they still b-boying over there...you bet realize.
That month flew by, but we always have more than enough Grime to fill an hour...not to mention their industry is like dancehall - hundreds of songs dropping daily. We have at least 8 of the newest and 9 older tracks for you right here.
We missed a week and we missed bringing you our unique blend of modern and past songs. So sit back and enjoy.
Although the music of Bobby Sessions, Nick Grant, & Porter Ray is completely different, what they all seem to be focused on is the Art of Rap & not chasing hits. And all of them appear to do something else similar…read. Clever punchlines, extensive vocabularies, & variety of topics, so long as there are Rappers like these three, Rap as an art form stands a chance of lasting a few more decades.
if someone pressured me and forced me to name my favorite instruments to sample, I would answer almost matter-factly say the piano. and i can find hundreds of songs to support that. here's like...sixteen of em.
If you like the unique voice of Sampha...you're in the right place. But if the timbre of his voice ain't your cup of tea...keep it movin, keep...it...movin.
My older brother ruminates on the current state of rap and we give a few lyrical MCs.
Let me tell you, I could do a whole show of covers - with random people and chamber orchestras and the like...but I went easy on ya'll.
I must admit...every once in awhile, I need some different sounds, different subject matter, different vibes and from 97 at least until 04, aside from garage and grime, this was my go to music.
We take you back to the sound that originated in that E3.
The return of Mize...and a lil afrobeat.
