Backroad Radio – July 15th 2013


Veteran Toronto MC Dan-e-o of Monolith fame and Perfeck Strangers stopped by this week to premier his new track “face to face” and speak to us about it. The song and his interview with us has been met with controversy due to the fact he’s calling out certain members of Toronto’s hip hop community. Dan-e-o chose to speak very candidly with us and didn’t mince words to state how he felt about those individuals and the entire situation. Peep the interview for the full run down.

We were also joined by Esther Pilgrim who was one of the women at the centre of the Tim Dog/Dateline story which surfaced last year. We talked to her about her experiences with Tim Dog, her thoughts on his death perhaps being fake, her upcoming book, and even how romantically/sexually involved she was with him.

New music courtesy of Big Jacks with joints from Prodigy & Alchemist, Jay-Z, ASAP Ferg, Action Bronson, Joey Badass, House Shoes and more including a couple of new bangers produced by Marco Polo featuring MC Eiht and Guilty Simpson respectively.

Royale provided the throwback dropping classics from Nas, Jemini The Gifted One, Royal Flush, Jamal, Notorious B.I.G. and more.

Besides our guests we had a lot to discuss as well regarding the George Zimmerman verdict, the Yesiin Bey (Mos Def) force feed video and Kanye West’s infamous “hip hop t shirt”.

You don’t want to miss this one.
