Backroad Radio – Aug 19th 2013


Unless you don’t listen to hip hop at all or have very limited to access to the internet than you should have heard about Kendrick Lamar’s verse on “control” by now. Arguably the most important rhyme he’ll ever spit, this is exactly what hip hop needs right now to shake things up and cause a change in the culture’s landscape. We discuss our thoughts on the verse, reaction to it by artists/fans, and why we feel it’s one of the biggest events to take place in hip hop in the last 5 years. Let us know your thoughts.

We haven’t done the Get Busy DJ segment in over a year but this week it made it’s return with a bang as we brought in our homie and TO heavyweight, DJ Mensa, to spark it off. Mensa ran through a set of some of his new rap favourites and also joined us to speak on all that he’s been up to lately.

Big Jacks and Royale brought the new tunes with bangers from: ASAP Ferg, Earl Sweatshirt, Children Of The Night, Saba, Schoolboy Q, Mr Exqire, Joey Badass, Action Bronson, 100s and of course Big Sean feat. Kendrick Lamar and Jay Electronic plus more.
