Episode 79 (Hour 1)

• February 2nd, 2016

Peace y'all. Nitty Gritty Radio's back with some more neck crackers for the year 2016. I'm your selector Wil Infamous and I have to say that 2016 didn't start out quite the way I hoped. Cutting to the chase...shit's kinda fubar'd for your boy right now. But, it's a new dawn, it's a new day and I still have Hip-Hop muisc to fill in the dark spots. No other episode, in my opinion, has reflected how I'm feeling more then Episode 79. Both Hours 1 & 2 has an expression of emotion that only Hip-Hop music can capture from my soul. So Hopefully you can get aboard the ride that was my pain and my current road to redemption and rebuilding.

Episode 78 Best of ‘95 (Part 1)

• December 29th, 2015

Well fam, it's your selector Wil Infamous here with our last episode of 2015. This past year has been the hardest, most trying year of my short 38 years on this planet. Been taking the mind over matter approach, if you don't mind, it don't matter. But that's not always easy. Hard times come and hard times go but nostalgia...that stays the same. And no other year in my life gives me a greater feeling of nostalgia then the year 1995. Not only was it the year I turned 18 and graduated high school but it's was also the year with a plethora of amazing Hip-Hop. In some minds '95 marks the end of the "Golden Era" so I wanted to make this one special. Episode 78 (Best of '95 Pt. 1 & Pt. 2) are two 95 minute playlists full of true bangers. It's was an amazing year for music and hopefully these playlists capture the essence of the vibe. Enjoy!

Episode 75 (Part 1)

• July 29th, 2015

Peace world! Wil Infamous here with another neck snappin’ installment of Nitty Gritty Radio.  Friends and family…sometimes there’s a difference between the two but for myself growing up I was lucky to have two special friends that were also family in my life, my two cousins Jeff & Mike. As with any crew you roll with during your formative years we did everything together. From listening to Hip Hop while exchanging mix tapes/ freestyle battling in my basement to late night IHOP runs to crashing the plethora of local all girl school proms…this was my crew. And like any crew over time thing can fade and that was the case with the 3 of us. But recently through text, phone calls and some planning the crew is set up for an August reunion and I can’t wait. So for Episode 75 (Part 1) I wanted to do a playlist of the greatest trios in Hip Hop. No disrespect to 3rd Bass, The Ghetto Boys and others but the playlist I came up with for this one not only represents the music I would bump with my trio but also some of the greatest acts in Hip Hop history. 

So enjoy this Best Trios of Hip Hop playlist and when you’re done nodding your head, pick up the phone and call an old friend. It’ll do the soul some good.
