Sound Session #234 (11-22-09)

Pardon the brief delay on this week’s SNSS archive, but we had a few technical difficulties.  Plus, it’s a short week for Thanksgiving, so everything seems even more hectic than usual.  I’ll gladly take it if it means a 4 day weekend though…

Check out this week’s show for great music from artists like Lupe Fiasco, Slum Village, Obie Trice, Souls of Mischief, Strange Fruit Project, Macklemore, James Pants, BlakRoc, and more.  Plus, we aired a snippet of our recent interview with Wale.  We’ll be posting the full discussion (with video) on the blog soon (along with the full Royce Da 5’9″ video in the next few days).  Keep it locked.

I know it’s generally a positive holiday, but whenever this day comes around, I can’t help but think of Nas’ bars from “What Goes Around“:

“The Indians saved the Pilgrim/
And in return, the Pilgrim killed ’em/
They call it Thanksgiving, I call ya holiday hellday/
Cause I’m from poverty, neglected by the wealthy”

Not trying to be a Debbie Downer, but remember how we got here…and on that note – *ahem* – Happy Thanksgiving!
