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!
