This week, we attended a concert at SOBs featuring Wu-Tang icon, Raekwon. Among the openers, the buzzing Dave East, the Harlem spitter with the Nas co-sign. We'll discuss his rise, as well as the others on the bill, including Kris Kasanova and the blisteringly entertaining Wordsmiff.

From new jacks, to old school, we'll talk about The Breaks, the VH1 movie that looks at the rise of 90s hip-hop, loosely based on Dan Charnas' tome, The Big Payback, which chronicled much of the explosive growth of the business of hip-hop that occurred at that time.

We'll talk (issh?) about year-end lists, and some events coming up.

As always, we welcome your calls.

The NY Hip Hop Report. Like sports talk radio. Just hip hoppier!

This episode is brought to you by The Spinning Wheel, an interactive, multi-media, hip-hop theater event happening all through January at the BRIC House in Brooklyn.
