Episode 74 (Part 1)

• June 9th, 2015

Peace world. Its your boy Wil Infamous here and unfortunately this episode comes on the heels of some sad news in the Underground Hip Hop community. Robert Diaz aka P.H. (Pumpkinhead) has passed away at age 39. Not only was he a very skilled emcee but, in my two times meeting and talking to him, he was also a good person. This episode was originally going to be themed around Underground gems from ’99-’00 but once I heard the news of P.H.’s passing I knew I had to work a couple of his joints onto this playlist. That being said, this episode starts off with a Pumpkinhead banger “Wack Emcees” then a drop from the man himself that I got the last time I got to talk to him in 2011 at the Rocksteady 34th anniversary show in NJ.

So enjoy the vibe and remember to show love to your family, friends and favorite emcees while they’re still alive because no man is promised tomorrow.

Peace fellow Hip Hop junkies! It's your boy Wil Infamous here with another edition of Nitty Gritty Radio.

Nothing makes me feel happier doing this podcast then when I hear heads tell me how the music I select affects their daily life. Over the past 6 years the podcast has collected over 400K feed hits/ subscribers and over 90K people have pushed play and felt the vibe on the podbean website. Out of all of those plays the ones that are real special are those from friends. And I got one friend who's been down with vibe since day one and even before that. My man from the diamond district, TI Atlan, hasn't missed an episode and regularly checks em on work travels and road trips. Well my dude recently got a crispy new 2015 Jeep and it sparked a convo between us about the greatest Jeep tracks in Hip Hop. Now once a seed is planted I gotta water it and see how it grows. So here we are, Episode 73 (Part 1) is the sprouted conclusion from that convo.

Hope you feel the vibe and if you're bumpin' this thru car speakers, turn that shit up to 11, roll down a window and cruuuuuise.

nittyEp721.jpg

Wuddup world! It’s your selector from a different sector, Wil Infamous, back with some more goodies here on Nitty Gritty Radio. The month of March is “Women’s History Month” so I thought what better time to do a playlist of powerhouse emcees then right now. I try to refrain from using the term “female emcee” because all the women on this playlist are just EMCEES in my book and don’t deserve to be on a separate list when the discussing some of the best to ever do it.  

So with all that said, Episode 72 (Part 1) is something special. Yes, the ladies represent hard on this mix but what’s also represented is pure lyricism. We got gems from MC Lyte, Queen Latifah, Bahamadia and Lauryn Hill to name a few. Sit back, relax and hail the queens of Hip Hop here on Episode 72 (Part 1).

Playlist:

Lyte As A Rock - MC Lyte

Peace y'all! It's your sound provider Wil Infamous here back with some more of that good ole Golden Era Hip Hop music.  Last week I was lucky enough to host some events with the NBA in Brooklyn, NYC for All Star Week.  I lived in BK from ’02-’10 so I’m familiar with “the planet” but since moving 5 years ago I really haven’t spent that much time back on the borough.  Being there for a week definitely put me back in that New York state of mind but even more so it was a Brooklyn state of mind.

So I decided for Episode 71 (Part 1) to do a playlist full of great emcees born in Kings County. 

Brooklyn…stand up!

Playlist:

Nuff' Respect - Big Daddy Kane

Music Man - Masta Ace

Statik - Jeru The Damaja
