Backroad Radio – April 14th 2014

April 16, 2014


Outkast’s return to the stage has had everyone in hip hop and music in general buzzing and discussing the groups string of upcoming shows this year. While their performance at Coachella was met with mixed reviews, it was still clear that the music world was happy to see them together again. You can’t deny the fact that they are one of the greatest hip hop groups of all time. We did a throwback to spotlight some of their classics on this week’s show.

Royale and Big Jacks were on the road so Bozack held down all the duties of throwback and new joints as well. Peep the new music from: YG x Kendrick Lamar, Flatbush Zombies, Freddie Gibbs, Isiah Rashad, TRA (The Rhyme Animal), De La Soul, Mobb Deep, VLXL, and more including that BoJackson exclusive!

He joined us on the show this week to drop off new music, discuss his forthcoming project and hit us with some of them backroad bars.

It wasn’t even April yet but apparently hip hop had a lot of foolishness going on this past week as we discussed Benzino getting shot at his mother’s funeral, Papoose claiming to be better than Jay-z and more.

and for you lovers of 90′s hip hop we hit you with a few throwback joints as well to close out the show.
