It Takes Two: Black History Month Focus on Hip Hop Duos – the Beat Diet 2021-02-04. Also RIP Double K of PUTS

It will come as no surprise to fans of the show, but I am a huge People Under the Stairs fan, so it was disheartening to hear the sad news of Michael ‘Double K’ Turner’s passing over the weekend. Given this, it was a no-brainer to start out the show paying tribute to Double K with some PUTS.

With that dynamic duo as a jump off, we then spent the rest of the show spotlighting great hip hop duos.

I Feel For You – The Beat Diet, January 14th 2020

Starting out paying our respects to the dearly departed once again this week, which has seemed an all too common occurrence over that last year. Whodini founding member Ecstasy passed away over the holiday break, and I wanted to show our love for one of the early pioneers of the hip hop game. Then a bit more from MF DOOM after last week’s tribute show.

Then into some more classic hip hop before working our way into some trap and 80s synth stuff. Glad I played Chaka Khan’s fantastic I Feel for You as well. The Grammy-winning song was written by Prince and features Melle Mel and harmonica from the one and only Stevie Wonder. The video features dancing from Shabba Doo, who might better be known from his role as Ozone in Breakin’ and Breakin’ 2 and got his start showing off his unique style on Soul Train. Sadly, Adolfo ‘Shabba Doo’ Quinones also just recently passed away right before the new year.

Hope you enjoy this week’s show.
