DJ Premier Says No Ghostwriters at BET Cypher

This casual convo from last Sunday’s Rap Is Outta Control has taken on a life of it’s own since it hit the net. DJ Eclipse was out & Preem was filling in with me, our loyal listener/caller Greg from upstate ALWAYS has an intriguing question or two & the rest as they say is history.

Rap Is Outta Control (9/4/11) w/OuterSpace

Outerspace were our guests Sunday on “Rap Is Outta Control”. Their new album “My Brother’s Keeper” is out now on Enemy Soil Records. Check the show to hear some joints off their album as well as the ill rhyme session at the end. We also premiered a new cut off of Evidence’s “Cats & Dogs” album which comes out in 3 weeks. And big shout out to my man DJ Premier who stopped by at the beginning of the show to recap on this past weekends Rock The Bells concert in NY. His set with Nas, AZ & Pete Rock was monumental. The unexpected performance of “Live From The BBQ” with Fatal, Akinyele & Large Pro was a once in a lifetime experience. And MC Serch also made an appearance marking the first time that him and Nas ever performed “Back To The Grill”. Playlist after the jump.

Rap Is Outta Control (8/14/11) w/Timbo King

Here’s Sunday’s show with our Wu-affiliated guest Timbo King. You can get his album “From Babylon To Timbuktu” on Aug. 30 when it drops. A few joints from the album can be heard on the show below as well as a mean freestyle at the end. Don’t let anyone tell you there isn’t any good music out there. They just don’t know where to look. Matter of fact two friends of mine dropped albums today worth getting. Slaine “A World With No Skies 2.0” and Median “The Sender”. Support the artists that you like and radio shows like these that provide an alternative to what’s become the norm in “mainstream rap music”.
