Apologies for the week long delay for SNSS #336, but some things came up last week (namely, my baller trip to Los Angeles to see Frank Ocean! *notsohumblebrag*).  Here’s the show though, complete with new music from Pac Div, ASAP Rocky, Asher Roth, Jhene Aiko, The Away Team, Drake, Wale, and more.  Plus, we were joined in studio by local artist Props, who has a real dope track we’ve been playing featuring Wale and produced by Vitamin D.

Heavy D, Kool G Rap, Grand Puba, CL Smooth, Big Daddy Kane, Pete Rock, and Q-Tip – Don’t Curse (video)

RIP Heavy D! I never met Heav, but from all accounts, he was an incredibly positive and amazing person. He was a classic hip-hop icon that could span all sub-genres of the culture to get love from everyone. Don’t just remember the uptempo pop songs and dance moves…dude could rhyme.

He’ll be missed in this industry and worldwide.
