It's time for another new edition of The Hip-Hop Shop. Episode #214 is entitled Interwebs & Twitter Goin' Nutz. Now we can't say for SURE that they are, but they SHOULD BE after listening to Bishop Lamont, 97 Bulls, Local Mu12, Jasiri X, and more! Thanks for listening and remember to share the show with a friend and tell them to check it out every Tuesday on RapReviews.com!
Funky DL "Instrumentals Straight from the MPC" Vol 1 + 2
Courtesy Washington Classics.
A collection of head nodding beats and creatively weaved gems for hip-hop purists to enjoy time and time again. This collection gives the listener a chance to hear the music as straight two-track stereo, direct from the AKAI MPC without each sound having been processed through external mixing.
This project has been in the making for nearly two years since Vintage (New Brunswick, N.J.) began studying at Rutgers University. It is defined by lyricism, honesty, and standout production. This is not the typical 'frat rap' the hip hop community has come to expect from rappers in college. It's music with a mature sound.
