"New York City Radio during the 1980's featured the most dynamic and influential soundtrack the city had ever heard."
Red Bull Music takes a look back at radio in New York City in the 1980's with DJs such as DJ Red Alert, Stretch Armstrong, Marley Mal and DJ Spinna sharing their memories. Everyone on here was influenced in one way or another and they all reminisce about their personal connection to the music.
Unfortunately, this is desperately short considering the scope of music released back then but still very enjoyable.
With Mobb Deep recently being added to the line up at this years' Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival, the festival executive Wes Jackson dropped this short documentary on their classic album "The Infamous". This coincides nicely, as this year marks the 20th anniversary of the album's release.
Yesterday at Coachella, Raekwon and Ghostface Killah performed the classic album "Only Built For Cuban Linx". Backed by Scram Jones on the 1's and 2's, the duo went back and forth over some of the most iconic beats ever to be contained on one album.
Check the set below. Props to Yardie for the upload.
DJ Premier and Royce Da 5'9 continue to roll out the videos from their PRhyme project. This time with a little help from the fantastic Dwele, the duo showcase one of the more soulful cuts from the album with "You Should Know".
"PRhyme" is available now.
Also, catch the pair in Manchester on April 19th as part of the RedBull Music Academy UK tour alongside DJ Jazzy Jeff and Todd Terry among others.
After premiering his new video for "King Kunta" last night in Times Square, Kendrick Lamar releases his West Coast drenched visuals for the world to see. Director X takes it back to Compton for one of maybe two tracks on the album "To Pimp A Butterfly" that could rock a dancefloor.
The album is available now everywhere. Check the video below.
