Sound Session #178 (10-26-08)


WARNING. WARNING. We are now one week away from the most important day for the United States that any of us have lived through.  Are you ready to vote on Nov. 4th and turn this country around?

If you’ve listened to any episode of Sound Session or read a few blog posts here on TAOD, you know that I’m taking this election very seriously.  I hope the rest of you are too, because we simply can’t afford another 4 years of the same failed policies both home and abroad that we’ve witnessed during Bush’s disgraceful presidency.  We didn’t talk too much about the election on the latest episode of SNSS, mainly because I’m saving that for next week’s show on the 2nd.  Oooh boy, you hip-hop republicans will hate that one…

This past show featured our normal mix of dope music from people like Black Milk, Evidence, Kardinal Offishall, Q-Tip, Shad, Foreign Exchange, and more.  Plus we ran Kanye’s emotional ode to his mom, Joe Budden’s reworking of that Coldplay track I’ve been telling everyone to rhyme over, one of the standout tracks from the exceptional new album from The Knux, and more.

We also had Brainstorm of Dyme Def and Twixx of the world famous Massive Monkees crew come through to talk about the International B-Boy Championships going down at the Paramount on Saturday.  Dope breaking, DJ’ing, and performances by Dyme Def, B.o.B., and Pacific Division?  Wow.  I’m there.  Cop your tickets here.  Of course, if you were listening live, you could have won free tix to that show and Q-Tip, The Cool Kids, and The Knux too.  But you already knew that…

    That new Budden joint is fire. Still waiting for Amalgam Digital to get their site figured out so I can download the whole album though…

    I think 9/11 was and is the most important day any of us (under age 65) have lived through, in a different way of course. I just finished reading The Audacity of Hope, though, pretty good stuff…he’s so calm mannered. Sent my absentee in about 2 weeks ago.

    On a musical note, I’m not feeling that Coldplay for some reason. Or that new Foreign Exchange to be honest, huge disappointment to me, and I’m one of Phonte’s biggest supporters.

    That’s fair man, definitely no rule that you have to dig it just cause you’re a Phonte fan. It’s not for everyone, but I like it a lot. Would I have enjoyed a cookie cutter sequel to “Connected”…yep! But I still really like it.

    And word up about 9/11…definitely super important, but as you mentioned, very different. This Nov. 4th is still right up there at the top though.

    J, glad you like the Budden…I think Amalgam should have that up and running now…
