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.

Such a good interview with Madlib by Laura Leishman for Radio France. He talks jazz, Fantastic Planet  (watch if unfamiliar), and why J Dilla is the “Coltrane of hip hop”.  They just chill out, listen to records, and share insight not quite attainable in any other setting really.

Jolowitz and I speak with Doodlebug aka Cee Knowledge, MC of the legendary Digable Planets, maybe the chillest, ultra-jazzy hip hop crew of the early 90’s.  We discuss the reasons behind the break up of Digable Planets, the content of modern hip hop, his current and future happenings, artists he regrets not working with, and his ideal setting to write lyrics, among other things.

Note: The Interview is broken up into 2 parts.

The precision in which Rench combines country and hip hop, two seemingly antithetical genres, into one revolutionary sound is incredible.  Jolowitz and I had the pleasure of speaking with the mind behind, the producer of, and the singer for Gangstagrass.  He discusses his work before Gangstagrass, what propelled him to fuse Bluegrass and Hip Hop, and the details behind his upcoming tour, among other things.  He also gives us exclusive news on an upcoming collaboration.

Here’s a stream of his latest album Rappalachiain case you’re ill-informed of his style:

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.
