I was fortunate enough to have a conversation with Wu-Tang’s Cappadonna to speak about his new release, Hook Off.

We talked the new album, his path from Park Hill to prison to today, and how his message has changed during the ride.

“Most popular hip-hop songs can only be remembered by a catchy hook, so with no hook the listener has no choice but to take in the lyrical content, flow and delivery of the artist, which is what this album comes packed with.”

I had an opportunity to speak with Well$ of Charlotte, North Carolina on Beatspill Radio, WMUA 91.1FM.  We talked about his label, Immaculate Taste, his new album, MTSYD: Revenge of the African Booty Scratchers, his generation’s old school icons, and why the North Carolina hip hop scene is on it’s way to joining New York, Detroit, and LA as a mecca of the genre moving forward.

We had the good fortunes of speaking with DJ Symphony after the GZA show in Northampton the other night. We talked about Wu-Tang‘s upcoming Coachella and European tour dates, his upcoming project with Ghostface Killah, Certified Crack, and his independent station Radio Invasion. Less official business includes the division of the genre, the essence of hip hop, and, of course, jazz. He’s an incredibly entertaining guy and gave us an terrific interview. We’ll keep you all up to date on his upcoming projects.

Check us out tonight on Radio Invasion and WMUA 91.1 FM.

I can’t find a date on this track by Brooklyn’s Tribeca Sound, but it seems like it would work well with 1994. Very chill and obviously jazz influenced, this song will make you feel as though you appreciate the art of jazz, whether you do or whether you just prefer the thought. Listen for this song live on the air tonight via BEATSPILL Radio, our slot on WMUA 91.1 FM.

Listen here (5:30-7)

Update: Just kidding, next week. Tonight’s show was killer regardless.
