We talk Diamond D, studio chemistry, being taken seriously as an emcee, producer and DJ and his many tales of difficult situations regarding artists he has worked with. Will he ever seal off those Ghostface and Sean Price verses? Listen to find out.
A reborn Grafh steps on to the show with a new-found focus and wave of creativity to discuss the recently released Rule EP and forthcoming projects including; Pain Killers Reloaded and his next solo studio opus, which he reveals isn't far from completion, explaining that it will be his most "polished" record to date. We also talk last years memorable series of freestyles, video's, Shia Lebeouf, industry politics, freedom and more in a frank and cohesive exploration into what many are labeling as phase 2 in Grafh's artistic evolution.
Buzz maker Kid Daytona steps up to the show to discuss his upcoming album The Interlude 2 and its current status, which unlike its predecessor will consist of original production free of any samples, plans of releasing a free EP around Christmas, performing on BET's flagship show 106 & Park and embracing fans as young as 13, memories of being in the studio with Busta Rhymes, Pharell and Q Tip, favourite artists and his on-going quest to collaborate with Q-Tip - plus more in a snap shot thus far of the rising stars journey!
Henry Chalfant steps up for a reflection on the 1982 documentary that found beauty in New York City's bad old days, namely Style Wars, delivering an evocative and unforgettable interview rich in content and nostalgia. We discuss the holy grail of Hop-Hop documentaries and its future, of which its producer Mr. Chalfant has plans on releasing a 30 plus hours project of outtakes called Style Wars...the Outtakes. Shot between 1981 and 1982, these outtakes however are at risk and need to be restored before release. Hours of additional footage are in the archive, all of which is damaged and fading, but fortunately is possible to repair through digital technology and YOUR support. By making a pledge of just $1 or more at the Style Wars Kick-Starter website, you as a supporter will in turn receive rewards based on how much you donate. Will you help save the outtakes? Hip Hop stand up!
