If you've been listening to The NY Hip Hop Report for any of the past 99 episodes, you'll know that we have been discussing all of the hot button issues that are currently the talk of hip hop music and culture.
The balance of old school and new. The legacy and perception of NY hip hop. Problems with commercial rap radio. The terrible state of hip hop journalism. Women in hip hop. Hip hop culture vs. rap music culture.
All while reporting on the events, organizations, artists, releases & issues in the diverse NY hip hop ecosystem.
For more than two years, we have opened our platform to you, and gave you a chance to speak your mind.
It's been a great run!
For this milestone, we welcome a guest who helps makes our 100th episode feel so special. An artist/advocate who is speaking about these very same issues, through his music & multiple interview appearances, constantly dropping jewels.
Now, he'll join us, the show that uniquely represents New York City hip hop like no other.
Please join us as we welcome Queensbridge veteran, Cormega, fresh off the release of his highly acclaimed album, Mega Philosophy, produced entirely by the iconic Large Professor.
We'll talk with Mega about his project, life & career, the state of "the industry" and its future, to try and glean some vital philosophy.
Later in the show, we'll talk to Majesty, a brother who works with several NY-based hip hop organizations, including the long-running weekly showcase End of the Weak. Majesty will be speaking about the upcoming one year anniversary of Legendary Cyphers, the weekly, outdoor gathering of MCs and hip hop heads that lights up Union Square Park every Friday.
Of course, we'll also bring some new releases to the show, and as always, take your calls.
Tune in, and welcome the start of our next 100 episodes!
Those Guys discus the eighth Dragonball Z film, "Broly: The Legendary Super Saiyan" and More...
With three platinum and five gold albums, Najee is one of the pioneers of what is commonly known as Contemporary Jazz. A combination of jazz improvisation and R&B, this genre forms a bridge from the jazz fusion of the 70s to the jazz pop of the mid 80s.
A native of Jamaica, Queens, New York, Najee shared all of his musical dreams-and later, many professional gigs-with his brother Fareed, a guitarist who was a year younger. Their father passed away when they were very young, but their mother encouraged a deep exposure to jazz via recordings by artists as diverse as the Miles Davis Quintet, Junior Walker and Mongo Santamaria. Najee showed an early interest in the sax but a grammar school teacher steered him towards clarinet when there were no sax chairs available in the school band.
Najee, along with his brother Fareed, attended the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston with a concentrated study in performance and composition.
Najee left the Conservatory after three years and moved back to New York, where he immersed himself in the club scene. One night when he was out playing straight ahead jazz, Lesette Wilson, keyboardist and musical director of Chaka Khan-who was hot at the time with her trademark hit “Ain’t Nobody”-came in and loved what she heard. She called him to audition for the singer’s upcoming tour, and in no time Najee found himself on the road for a year with the legendary diva, playing alto sax and flute. Najee’s good fortune transferred to Fareed’s career as well when Chaka’s longtime guitarist Tony Maiden failed to show up for a rehearsal. Fareed plugged in and was hired to play alongside Maiden for the tour.

While still in their teens, Steven Russell Harts, Allen McNeil, Rodney Benford, John Harreld, and Reggie Warren-AKA TROOP-scored big with their self titled Atlantic debut album, which yielded the #1 R&B hit, “MAMACITA,” and the top ten R&B tune “MY HEART”. Troop’s follow up album, 1989’s “ATTITUDE”, struck RIAA GOLD propelled by two #1 singles “SPREAD MY WINGS” and “ALL I DO IS THINK OF YOU.”
Entering a music industry that at the time already had the great success of other male R&B groups, Troop had their work cut out for them with distinguishing themselves from the rest, but from the moment they made their official entrance into the industry Troop quickly set themselves apart from other groups with their captivating harmony & explosive dance styles.
This internationally recognized R&B Sensation got their start in the late 80s after they won a televised talent contest called, “Puttin on the Hits” that drew interest from record labels & fans alike. Hailing from Pasadena, CA where they are still based, Troop was signed to Atlantic Records and released their debut single “Mamacita.” After reaching #1 on the Billboard R&B Charts it quickly established them as a group.
