Backroad Radio – Jan 16th, 2012

Backroad Radio (in our opinion) is the most all around hip hop show in Toronto and this week’s episode is evidence of that. We went everywhere in the hip hop world from the present to the past, north south, east and west.

It’s been 20 years since the release of the classic movie Juice and we took time this week to commemorate the film and discuss our fondest memories of it. Royale came with a special throwback dedicated to Q, Steele, Raheem and of course Bishop! If you don’t want to go back and watch the movie again after this set there’s something wrong with you!

New music sets from Bozack and Big Jacks with brand new joints from: Talib Kweli, Jay-Z, DaVinci, Mr Exquire, The Get By feat. Tanika Charles, Set 2, Gangrene, Pac Div feat. Casey Veggies, Pusha T, A$AP Rocky and much more!

Big up DJ Akalepse of Truth & Soul records in NYC who joined us for an interview to discuss his upcoming gig in Toronto with Rich Medina.

Lastly, we paid our respect to funk legend Jimmy Castor who passed away on monday.
