It's been an extremely active week in New York hip hop. From the old to the new, from the gritty streets to the artsy fartsy, there's been exciting things going on for fans of the entire spectrum of hip hop music and culture, and as always, we're here to not only talk about it, but talk WITH YOU about it.

This week, we welcome the folks from Freedom City NYC Apparel, a fledgling clothing line, to kick it about the current state of 'urban' clothing, being an entrepreneur and their upcoming Life Free Revolution event in conjunction with Art Rapture.

Also, from huge events like Schoolboy Q in Central Park and the 4th annual Team Fearless Honors, to Ja Rule and 50 Cent, to Battle Rap taking a serious L, to Angie Martinez speaking about her stunning departure from Hot 97, the NY hip hop universe has been buzzing all week. We'll discuss these things, plus get a 1st hand account of the Schoolboy Q SummerStage event, which also featured a slew of New York favorites.

So join us on the only radio show that knows these topics inside out, has been covering this scene for many years and comes on air every week so that we, and most importantly, YOU, can have something to say about it all.
