We are back with another great show featuring an artist that we had recently selected in the SPOTLIGHT feature- DASHAH. Besides the spotlight feature, we have long supported Dashah's music. Do a search through this site and you will see. Alabama born, Long Island raised and current Brooklyn resident, Dashah puts it down on the mic. His love and respect for lyrics hip hop shines through his music. Dashah drops in for an interview and freestyle and we play a couple of his hottest joints including the first single from ILL INSANITY's new album "Ground Xero", "Decorated Vet". The show is also laced with new music by EDREYS (more on him in a few days), MULATTO PATRIOT (check the VIDEO for the song "Showtime" HERE), PROSPER JONES (more on him soon too), KIDZ IN THE HALL, ESTELLE, DA KREEK (thanks DTown!), THE GAME & THE ROOTS. We take it back with rare joints by NICE & SMOOTH and GRAND DADDY I.U. Enjoy the show...

My boy HeRBaN LyRiX dropped a series a great profiles giving shine to some of the best and groundbreaking females in hip hop- RAH DIGGA, B.W.P. (Bytches Wit Problems), and YO-YO. Each piece contains a great overview of the artist's work, impact and links to some gems. The Rah Digga piece is especially thorough as LyRIX drops several classic videos of her best features. LyRIX truly came through with the B.W.P. A lot of heads barely remember this female version of N.W.A. and predecessor to H.W.A. "Two Minute Brother" was the most popular single and was a statement of sexual empowerment. Much of B.W.P.'s album was so shocking to me at the time that I stopped playing it and threw it away. The sting is likely diminished due to the explicit nature of the world nowadays. Damn I miss Yo-Yo...
