What’s the 411? The Beat Diet, May 6th

We got inspired by a recent Chris Read mix to play some 90s Hip Hop Rnb, but somehow always seemed to end up back at straight up hip hop. Nonetheless, we dropped a mostly 90s hip hop set in the first hour, but with some dancehall and Rnb and funk thrown in as well. Then in the second hour, we slowly wound things up into some mint broken beat and acid jazz. That WheelUp album is straight fire!

RIP Shock G: The Beat Diet, April 29th 2021

He was a psychedelic rap pioneer who was one of the first — and best — at translating George Clinton’s P-Funk across genres and generations. He was a high-concept ringleader of a canonical hip-hop band indelibly remembered for a song cycle about NASA-created “sex packets” that somehow helped cement hip-hop’s status as a genre with immense crossover power. He was an eccentric visionary who collaborated with Dr. Dre and Prince, and helped discover 2 Pac and produced tracks that would make him a star. And with his amorous Humpty creation, he ensured that Burger King bathrooms would never be seen the same way.

From the Washington Post

Paying our respects to the man, Shock G this week. Then more hip hop and funk.
