Spooky's a don, spinning for 32+ minutes with a grip of fierce MCs.

DJ Booth premieres?! I see you! This new one, "Go Time," is my kind of shit, too. Something about that vocal in the beat. If you've been rocking with us, you know the god. He's steady killing it, and I love seeing him get these kinds of looks.
Mr. Wonderful and I Don't Like Shit, I Don't Go Outside in the heaviest of rotation already.

Nappy DJ Needles' "Luchini" / "Hot Nigga" blend was much better IMHO, this shit had me bugging just as easily. I'm a sucker for early Bone singles, and "CoCo" was an ignant anthem from last year. You already know.
The legendary producer of Warning, The What, Lifestyles of the Rich and Shameless, and many more classics came by to talk about coming up with Mister Cee, making Ready to Die, working with BIG and Pac, his relationship with Puff and much more!"
If you want an official, perfectly organized, and professional Biggie retrospective — go somewhere else. If you want to hear great stories and factoids from Ciph, opinions and memories from me, and a great call from Lord Finesse — listen to this!!"
Eighteen years ago today, the greatest rapper of all time was removed from this Earth. While I normally just rock the that rock the dub radio episode I made in tribute to Biggie's memory, there have been a few new additions to the Biggie Smalls canon that I wanted to share.
The squad sits down with a legend: "Kool Keith shares his long and eventful journey, from the South Bronx, to dancing in front of President Ronald Reagan, to the legendary hip hop clubs like Union Square and the Latin Quarters, to moving out west and inventing "pornocore", Dr. Octagon and all his various personalities. Crazy how his past intersect with a young Iggy Azalea. Poppa Large, big shot on the east coast."
For everyone who's leaving hip-hop because of the bullshit that's on the radio, I'll sit here and blast some new Jay Electronica. With shit like THIS still resonating, there's no reason to dip. Just find the outlets that are playing that real shit that you need.
