Word is Bond Rap Radio brings us the best in real hip-hop music and talk every week with DJ Chase March.

WIB Rap Radio – Napoleon Da Legend

We have a special guest on our phone lines this week, Napoleon Da Legend. You have heard his music on this show several times, and now you get to hear him talk about his music and hard hitting issues.

We talk about white privilege and the other types of  advantages that people have and might not even be aware of. We also talk about innovation and experimentation in music. It’s not always the best idea to stick to tried and true rules of hip-hop. As he says, “I know what automatically works right now” but he doesn’t just do that. He says, “I want to still be an artist that advances the music and tries.” The message here is that life is too short to conform.

Napoleon the Legend breaks it down even further, “Every great major artist that people put in their Top 10, has something totally brand new about what they did in one shape, form, or the other.

We had a great conversation that will inspire you and if you weren’t a fan before, I am sure you will be won over now. And of course, I spin tons of great new music, and sprinkle in a few underground jams from years past.

Press play and enjoy the show!

WIB Rap Radio – Dead Homiez

We’ve lost way too many emcees over the years. I had the idea to pay tribute to them in a special edition of Word is Bond Rap Radio.

My idea was start off the show with Ice Cube’s “Dead Homiez” and then play tracks exclusively from rappers who have passed away.

This is a show I have wanted to do for quite some time now. I just haven’t had the time. So when Xplizitsouljah asked to do a guest mix on the show and if I had any ideas for the show, I gave him this idea and he ran with it.

Let’s celebrate the music that these amazing artists have left us with. Thanks for the memories. Rest in Peace!

Eclipsing All Other Mixshows (WIB Rap Radio)

The moon tried to black out the sun and everyone looked towards the sky to witness the total solar eclipse this week.

That same night on Word is Bond Rap Radio I did my best to eclipse all other playlists and podcasts with two hours of underground hip-hop mixed live on the radio.

Records passed in front of each other, like the moon and the sun. They played together to create transitions and blends. It might not have been as visually stunning as the celestial event but it wass audibly pleasing and it’s just as worthy of your time.

Press play and enjoy the show!

Chase March on the Gripple Effect Mixshow

I am the guest DJ for the latest edition of The Gripple Effect Mixshow.

It’s an open-format show that highlights the art and skill of various deejays. Hosted by DJ Gripski, the show has absolutely no limits. A DJ is free to craft a mix of any length that covers any genre.

I wanted to have fun with this mix and play things I wouldn’t normally get the chance to play on my underground hip-hop show, Word is Bond Rap Radio. So there is some funk, some pop, some hip-hop, and a few instrumental tracks. I’m quite proud of how it turned out.

When I recorded this mixset, I played a song called Freedom and felt like I should mix it into another track by the same title. At the time, I didn’t realize that my guest stint for the show would be featured for episode 55. It made me think of the old commercials I used to hear for Freedom 55. I haven’t seen or heard a commercial from them in a while, and this is by no means a recommendation of their services. I just thought it was a nice plan on words and the theme of my mix.

Please visit DJ Gripski’s website and subscribe to his podcast. It celebrates the art of deejaying and features great mixsets every single month.

Download or stream DJ Chase March – Freedom 55 from the Gripple Effect Mixshow page.

150 Canadian Hip-Hop Tracks Celebrating Canada 150!

I wanted to celebrate Canada’s sesquicentennial with a special edition of Word is Bond Rap Radio. My goal was to play 150 Canadian hip-hop tracks to help celebrate Canada 150!

Last week, we started the quest and managed to play 30 tracks. Needless to say, this might take a a few more episodes to complete. But we will do it. There are so many great Canadian rap tracks. I look forward to highlighting some of the great ones in my collection.

If you have any requests, please leave a comment below, get at me on Facebook or Twitter, or call in to the station when we are live.

We started this show off with a Mobb Deep song to pay tribute to Prodigy. We lost him way too soon. I did a tribute mixset for him on the weekend when I was the guest DJ for Break North Radio.

It only felt right to have a guest DJ kick off this special. DJ Mark the Mechanic blessed the show with some Canadian hip-hop classics and even spun a few that I had completely forgotten about.

Then, up-and-coming Vaughan emcee, Trist4n, strolled through to talk about his new single and forthcoming album.

Finally, I closed off the night by jumping on the 1s and 2s to bring some more Canadian hip-hop jams.

This show features these tunes . . .

Word is Bond Rap Radio – 5th Anniversary Special

Word is Bond Rap Radio celebrated its 5th Anniversary with special in-studio guests, live performances, a freestyle cypher, hip-hop trivia, and prizes.

Labeled Minority, Tempomental, Sankdafied, The Mighty Speak EZ, and DJ Hullewud were all in the house to celebrate live on the radio. I spun tracks featuring 5 MCs on them and even gave away packs of 5 Gum to celebrate.

Thank you for five years! It’s been a blast!
