Paying Tribute to Muhammad Ali on Word is Bond Rap Radio

I had to pay tribute to Muhammad Ali on the radio program last week. Without him, I don’t think we would have hip-hop music and culture. He was a forefather of the art-form. He rapped before anyone knew what rapping was. He had a braggadocio flow that emcees still try to emulate. He is mentioned in countless songs as well. I start off the show with a few of them.

Rest in Peace, Muhammad Ali! You will never be forgotten!

Press play and enjoy the show!

WIB Rap Radio – Sankdafied and Speak EZ

I love getting local acts on my radio show. I have an open-door policy about it. Basically, all you need to do is to ask me and you can come by the station one night. We can do an interview, play some of your music, and kick a freestyle live on the air.

I am regularly out and about at local shows and am active on social media, so I am easy to find and connect with. So there really is no excuse, If you are an artist, you need to reach out to your community radio station.

On today’s edition of the show, Speak EZ comes by to talk about the new EP his group, Typewriters, is about to drop. He is also starting to work on some solo materiel. I can’t wait to hear both projects. These guys have a stage presence that absolutely blew me away the first time I saw them. They won me over right away with a brilliant 15 minute set at a Dirty Thursday last year.

Sankdafied is also on the program today and hearing his recorded music for the first time blew me away as well. I recognized the tunes from all the times I’ve seen him live and wsa really vibing to how great they sound on the radio. I can’t wait for his project to drop. It’s going to be really dope.

Press play and enjoy the podcast and remember to tune in live tonight at 12:00 midnight to hear the show on the radio.

The Rap Guide to Evolution (Know Your History: Episode 52)

Baba BrinkmanWelcome to Know Your History, your monthly dose of hip-hop knowledge. I’m your host Chase March and we have a great show for you today.

Normally, what I do on this program is build the show around a specific theme that is important to hip-hop culture. I do a lot of research, find songs that fit the topic, and combine all of that into a thirty minute documentary.

Today’s show is going to be a little different. We are going to combine science and hip-hop. Now, I know that doesn’t sound novel. Rappers often claim to drop science on their records, which of course is just slang meaning that they are going to try to educate you with their rhyme. When rappers drop science, they aren’t always discussing scientific principles.

Today, I am going to hand the reigns over to Baba Brinkman and he is going to be dropping actual science for the rest of the program. I will be airing his TED talk entitled, The Rap Guide to Evolution.

If you are not familiar with TED talks, you are in for a treat. TED started out as a conference back in 1984 where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, hence the name TED. Since then, it has grown to become a global phenomenon.

Basically the idea is that speakers are given less than 20 minutes to deliver a presentation on a topic. The goal is simply to educate and entertain.

On their website, they say, “We believe passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and, ultimately, the world. On TED.com, we’re building a clearinghouse of free knowledge from the world’s most inspired thinkers — and a community of curious souls to engage with ideas and each other.”

That’s very similar to my goal for this monthly documentary series.

Creative Commons licensing allows us to air this talk on the program today as long as it isn’t edited or altered. So, without further ado, here is The Rap Guide to Evolution by Baba Brinkman from TEDxSMU.

Stream the show with the player below or download the podcast for free.

Enjoy!
