Funkadelic Freestyles 043 + 044 Podcast

Posted in Uncategorized on August 29, 2009 by RMJ

This past Tuesday (8.25.09), J-$crilla released his debut album Culture of Honor to the masses. (It’s available for $7.99 with all the instrumentals on Amazon). We asked $crilla and his Inner Loop family to join us in-studio to celebrate the release, and they gladly obliged. Here’s the podcast in full – split into two fantastic hours. Part one features a special phone call from activist and radio host Sabir Bey, who addressed the media, politics, and KRS-One & Buckshot’s new album. Part two includes an in-depth interview with J-$crilla and a side-splitting cypher from Sketch, K-Beta, & Lyriciss. Also, DJ MAF mixes the first hour, and DJ Jerome Baker III mixes the second. [NOTE: There is a small amount of skipping throughout this podcast, but it is tolerable and it won’t ruin your eardrums]

PODCAST: FF 043 – Pt. 1 (feat. Sabir Bey)
PODCAST: FF 043 – Pt. 2 (feat. J-$crilla, Sketch, Lyriciss, & K-BETA)

You’ve never seen a podcast go up this fast! That’s because last night’s show was simply incredible. 2006 was the last time DC legend and emcee Asheru had visited the WRGW studios, a year before J.ben.ok joined the station. Three years later, our esteemed cohost and fellow RMJuicer, Unkle Scooty runs into Asheru and convinces him to stop by the studio (thank goodness). On Saturday, J.ben.ok ran into Kingpen Slim backstage at LOVE and made sure he’d be joining us early on Thursday night. Then Kokayi calls J.ben.ok up on Tuesday, finds out Ash is hanging with us, and agrees to sit in on Thursday. Now that’s what you call a successful three-hour show.

Part one features our interview with Kingpen Slim, covering everything from his beginnings to his now-promising future. Part two features a special call-in from FWMJ (we tried to get donations for Rappers I Know, y’all failed) and the start of our conversation with Asheru, Kokayi, and special guest Blackberry Jones. Part three features the most poignant discussion we’ve had in months, the premiere of the Blackberry Jones x Michael Jackson remix project King of Chop, and a spectacular cypher with our three guests. Oh, and did I mention a special call-in from the newest member of the Low Budget Crew, Hassaan Mackey?

The Urban Hang Suite

RMJ was personally invited to a brand new social event by ConArtists Guild and LNdour Sunday 9.06.09 as they translate Soho to DC @Studio10. Like such private NYC happenings, all individuals attending this event are of an exclusive order, where style equals substance. The specs below:

We know all too well that looks can be deceiving…The UrbanHangSuite will prove this further, by pitting grit versus glamour, with Studio 10 creating the perfect contrast of environments. Not a lounge or club, but a private loft studio which boasts 5000 sq ft, 30 ft ceilings, 2 levels, and multiple bars. Set in a nondescript location, the raw, rigid exterior is properly balanced by the awe of its plush loft space.

Break from the routine, and see what the beauty of new discovery offers.

PS: If you need to know the dress code, you may not want to attend.

RIP DJ AM

RIP DJ AM

RIP DJ AM

Our deepest condolences go out to the friends and family of Mr. Adam Goldstein. Its always sad when someone from the culture leaves, especially at such a young age of 36.

His last message on twitter was a verse from Grandmaster Flash & the Furious Five, kind of eerie when you think about it…

…You might get fooled if you come from out of town
But I’m down by law and I know my way around

Hes done so much for the dj community as well as sneaker culture. He and his legendary Air Mack$ Crew kicked the “sneaker head” frenzy off way back when.

AIR MACK$ CREW

Hope he is somewhere better, enjoying paradise. Rest in Peace.

Y.O.L.O ( you only live once) Make the most of it y’all.

Last Tuesday was Funkadelic Freestyles “preseason opener,” and since we’re using all these sports analogies lately – it was only fitting to bring in Mr. Starting-On-JV-himself, Phil Ade. Phil released an incredibly dope mixtape this past July with Raheem DeVaughn’s new boutique label 368 Music Group. We spent nearly two hours chopping it up with Phil and his mentor Dre the Mayor, which concluded with a ridiculously-long freestyle.

Hosted by Jamie Benson (aka jben.ok), Jay Promo, Unkle Scooty, King Carter, & DJ Jerome Baker III. Including special guests. Enjoy the 2-part podcast, and be on the lookout for weekly [abridged] episodes on the WRGW section of the iTunes music store.
