Sound Session #483 (9-14-14)

Posted in Episodes, Sound Session on September 24th, 2014 by Hyphen


Apologies for the delay in archiving the past 2 episodes of SNSS but you know, even if it takes a little time, we always gotchu.  On this episode, we ran through some great records from Alchemist, Vince Staples, Run The Jewels, Big Sean, Porter Ray, MC Lyte, Common, Prince, Sampha, SPZRKT, King, BANKS, and more.  We also world premiered the new single from Problem featuring Lil’ Jon, produced by Jahlil Beats, called “Andele.”  It’s about 2 weeks later and it still hasn’t hit the net, so peep it on SNSS first and remember where you heard it first.

Speaking of Problem, be sure you peep the full video of our interview with Compton’s finest right here.  We talked all about his background, upcoming album, and why Kobe is the greatest Laker of all time…and if he’s better than Mike.

Clock Radio Speakers podcast with DJ Hyphen

Posted in Interviews, Other Peoples' Interviews, Radio, Sound Session on January 5th, 2014 by Hyphen

(you like that 3rd person blog title, don’t ya?)

The homies Doc and Armond do one of the best hip-hop podcasts around with their Clock Radio Speakers show and I was honored to be a guest on a recent episode of theirs.  Toss this on and listen to us nerd out about all sorts of topics, including rap’s fascination with radio play and how radio really works, Wale’s issues with Complex, “event” releases in 2013 from artists like Jay-Z and Beyonce, my #InboxMadness Twitter series, industry tastemakers, and a whole bunch more.  Just a fun discussion with some folks that truly love music.  Good times.

I hope youngsters see the absurdity of these corny a capella battles and they eventually die off.
