Episode #42After all the hate and venom expressed in Episode 41, JMack, Phro and myself decided to kick back and express a little racial U.N.I.T.Y this episode. Listen in as we dig into JMacks mind a little bit, to find out how he first became a hip-hop fan, and we also discuss his dislike for certain white folks. The beef between Timbaland and Scott Storch was brought up, as well as CNNs negative story on the hip-hop industry. We took the time to catch up with The Academy, winners of Episode 40, and talk to them about their future projects. Of course the music in Episode 42 is on point as usual featuring tracks from Loose Cannons from Pottsville, PA, Hollywood Kill out of Hollywood, CA, Yung Onyx and Fredro Star coming from Queens, NY Prince Genisiz and Peter Lake from Chicago, IL

OutkastRepresenting the ATL, Outkast were amongst the first groups to bring national attention to the flourishing southern hip-hop scene. Dre and Big Boi craft some of the most progressive and original tracks around, pairing intricate, highly musical production with articulate lyricism. Backed by Organized Noize's studio wizardry, the group's colorful, thickly accented descriptions of southern life transcend regional boundaries and strike a global chord. Their first album, Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik (1994), swiftly went platinum on the strength of their huge hit "Player's Ball." Subsequent albums have shown a rapidly evolving style that incorporates wide-ranging influences and Dre's experiments with more abstract prose. Their fourth LP, Stankonia propelled them to superstar status, thanks to addictive singles like "Ms. Jackson," "B.O.B.," and "So Fresh, So Clean." Unlike many crews who come out strong only to buckle under the double-edged sword of commercial success, Outkast continue to grow and improve with each release.
