Thanks. It’s been so much fun doing this show for the past year, and both E-Rock and myself have learned a lot. Huge shouts to everyone that’s ever listened or downloaded, and the artists that gave us the time to interview them. We pretty much went crazy this episode, so enjoy. And we will be back bigger and stronger next year! So stay tuned.

The SymPhony 4/29

May 4, 2010

“I said I wanna ride ya nuts, cuz I think you’re the man!”

The truth is back. This weeks show was quality, we dropped new cuts from Pac Div, Wiz, Kooley High, and Thugnificent. We also revisited the classic pre-tight clothes era of the early 2000s, triple xl tees and enyce jeans. Don’t front like you didn’t crush some Platinum Fubu! Cop it!

The SymPhony 4/22 – RIP Guru

April 24, 2010

Gang Starr is the reason I listened to hip-hop the way I do. Period. I heard “Mass Appeal” when I was 11 years old, and that was it, I never looked back. When word of Guru’s illness first hit the public, I was hit way harder than I expected to be. I was riding the Q train home across the bridge and couldn’t believe it. Now that he has passed on, I realize how much his voice meant to my adolescence; he literally got me through high school. And so here and now, all I can do to thank him is this tribute show on this small college radio station. I hope he appreciates it.

The SymPhony 4/15

DJ Thiz, E-Rock, and Haitian B drop some new music from Wiz Khalifa, Maino and Wale, and go in on Rothlisberger, Tiger, and general immigrance. We wheeled up “Hello Goodmorning” about 20 times. And we get a call from Uncle Ruckus! UNCLE RUCKUS!

The SymPhony 4/8 – El Reggaeton EXPLOSION

April 16, 2010

El SymPhony! E-Rock hopped on the wheels today to bring the finest in old and new reggaeton. Some gems include “Mujeres En El Club,” a beautiful duet between Aventura and 50 Cent, “Reggaeton Latino,” the cult classic by Don Omar, and the track that started it all “Gasolina” with Daddy Yankee, Pitbull, and that special child Lil Jon.

[Interview] Wiz Khalifa

April 4, 2010

We had the pleasure of chatting with Wiz Khalifa after his show at Middle East last week. Dude tore it down, and was hilarious on and off camera. Major shouts to Arthur and Will, as well as Yelawolf who also blessed the stage that night.

The SymPhony (3/18)

March 19, 2010

Oh dear Lord! *faints*

“ResLife, eat a sack of baby dicks!” = Probably the most poignant statement ever made on The SymPhony. And shouts to Ridgeway in Philly for listening, and telling us to get our shit together and put up a tracklist because “how’s a bitch supposed to listen to new music when she doesn’t know what it is?!” You’re 100% right. Also, forgive us for messy levels in the beginning.

Interview – Rapper Big Pooh

February 28, 2010

I got the chance to chat with Rapper Big Pooh, one half of the legendary collective Little Brother, before his show at Middle East this past Tuesday. One of the coolest MC’s I’ve ever met, and he completely shut the show down. We talked about his latest project, “The Purple Tape,” a collab between him and Detroit producer Black Milk that features Pooh spitting over all Prince sampled beats, as well as his thoughts on up-and-coming artists, the influence Little Brother has had on the game, and the fate of the group, culminating with what is slated to be their final album together, “The Leftback.”

If you haven’t copped “The Purple Tape,” you’re a damn fool. Shouts to my boy Dougie Fresh at Yo! BC Raps for hipping me to it. Download it here. Right now.
