Backroad Radio – May 13th, 2013


Every now and then we have to remind you that it really is bigger than hip hop over here on Backroad and we go much deeper than just that. We dug in the crates heavy for throwback this week as Big Jacks played a set of some original joints that have been sampled throughout hip hop history. Soul and funk from the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s including tunes from: The Delfonics, Stephanie Mills, The Sylvers, Tom Brock, Gwen McCrae, The Charmels, Dionne Warwick and other rare gems from legends. Ya’ll gon’ learn today!

Toronto up and comer Jae Ari stopped by the show to kick it with us and give us the pleasure of conducting his first ever radio interview. He’s made noise as a freestyle champion on Much Music and now he’s dropping music on the world. He’s your introduction to him and his music. Plus he gave us some of them Backroad bars!

Bozack and Big Jacks held down the new music this week. Peep the bangers from: Dessey Hinds, Statik Selektah feat. Joey Badass x Raekwon x Black Thought, Mr Exquire, Rich Kidd, Joey Fatts, Flatbush Zombies, Prodigy x Alchemist, Chance The Rapper, Class of 93 feat. Phoenix Pagliacci x A. Harmony, J Shiltz x Junia T, Schoolboy Q and more.
