Lots going on in hip hop music and culture, in and out of our New York area. Call in and speak your mind!
This week, we'll respond to a critic of our coverage on our mothership site, Birthplace Magazine. While most of the NY-area hip hop living audience and independent musicians who follow us are extremely supportive of our work, one had a problem with our coverage, going so far as to claim we don't represent "real hip hop."
Despite an accompanying asinine derogatory comment, we're going to talk about it. We'll defend our coverage of course, but also discuss the uselessness of the phrase "real hip hop," and how idiotic it is to critique anyone for not adhering to something that simply doesn't exist.
Along the lines of hip hop purist and traditionalist leanings, we'll also talk about Lil Wayne, who has become a member of the Universal Zulu Nation. We'll discuss what this might mean for hip hop music and culture as a whole.
We'll also discuss new releases, including the lastest from A$AP Ferg and others.
And we'll cover the recent non-indictment in Ferguson, over the shooting death of Michael Brown, and speak a bit about how artists & organizations should proceed when it comes to dealing with the aftermath of this situation.
All that, with YOUR CALLS!

SuperFly: My Untold Story of Hip-Hop by Gloria Goldwater
Freestyle Mondays at Spike Hill, Monday, Dec. 1
Peace Family I Am extremely excited about this program.. In the first half of the program we will have Bro.Jihad and Bro.James of Dynasty Hip-Hop Incorporated Mentoring Program (DHHI) which is designed to utilize hip-hop, and it's industry to educate, motivate and empower youth with the training, and skills to become more productive members of society. The second half we will be joined by Mama Todd Twala the visionary, creator, and director of a Powerful South African Musical With a cast of 32 of South Africa’s brightest and most versatile young performers, singers, drummers and dancers, AFRICA UMOJA – The Spirit of Togetherness, 20 Years of Freedom and Democracy Tour is a joyous celebration of dynamic talent, thrilling energy, great voices and sensual dances that sweep across the bright and vibrant South African traditional landscape. Traveling on the beats of drums, from the dusty streets of Soweto to all the corners of the world’s best and biggest stages, AFRICA UMOJA – which in Zulu means ‘together’ – tells the moving tale of indigenous South African music and dance from the earliest rhythms to the current club sounds of kwaito. Audiences all over the world have embraced the traditional love songs, lullabies and other musical expressions of rural life. They have also cried along in the city streets listening to music reflecting the pain of the migrant laborers and their families. The tale dances through sheebeens and the cultural melting-pot of Sophiatown. The heart is saddened by cold stories of forced removals yet the feet continue to stomp along with the explosions of gumboot dancing. The international audiences will relate to names such as Miriam Makeba (Mama Africa) and the late Dolly Radebe, while a thread of gospel music running through the tale recalls the huge helpings of faith and courage. This saw black South Africans through some of the country’s stormiest historical passages.
This Episode is gonna be a special one. We're gonna interview the Beautiful and TALENTED N.C. Female artist Nina Brown on Off The Cuff Radio! We're also gonna be touching on subjects such as the Ferguson Aftermath, The Soul Train Awards, Haters of the Grid10 and our show, Lil Wayne joining the Zulu Nation and Why support is VERY important in regards of building a future.
We would love to hear your inputs on how we can create changes so Feel free to speak to us and call at 1914-338-1628 If you have questions or what to ask Nina anything in regards to her music, her moves, and her career(No dating! lol)

Immediately, there's a connection: Keith Andrew spent his childhood in Baltimore (small world!) - then moved to the San Francisco Bay area when he was a teen. He had been playing guitar since he was ten - and the rich diversity of music in Northern California fueled him further. Led to Los Angeles, he studied some of the most prestigious guitarists on the planet: Robben Ford, Joe Pass and more.
Keith made sure that he received an education that was suited for the future he was seeking. He was part of the Chaffey College Jazz Ensemble - and excelled so much that he won awards from The National Association of Jazz Educators. He did exceptionally well at the Guitar Institute of Technology, too. And became a staff instructor there. The best of paths followed our guest because he became associated with a very successful L.A. based group called Himilaya. The band got serious buzz and received national airplay - and also had a chance to tour.
Fast forward to 2014 and Keith Andrew has "Adventurous Soul" up and running - with 13 tracks and a who's who of Contemporary Jazz. The COOL piece of this Hybrid puzzle is that Keith has made some terrific choices, regarding who's around him, what he composes, and how he views his music. He found in fellow guitarist, Nils, a kindred spirit. Nils produced six of the songs on "Soul" - and these two exceptional artists found that their FEEL encompassed a fusion that included a vision of World music. Keith developed a passion for expanding his vision when he spent time with the California based group, Zulu Spear. He's an interesting guy, as well as the consummate guitarist. He loves the outdoors and is not a lightweight about it - Keith has been to countries to hike that have only been a part of many of our dreams :) Please join us in welcoming Keith Andrew on 12/4/2014!
We speak this morning to Latanya d. Tigner who has been with Dimensions since 1986, studying and performing traditional West and South African dance, modern, contemporary, jazz, Haitian, Cuban, and Congolese dance. She has traveled to Cuba, Guinea, Brazil, Jordan, Germany, and throughout the U.S. Latanya was selected as one of three emerging artists for the first annual Black Choreographers Here and Now Festival in 2005. This past summer she participated in Urban Bush Women’s acclaimed Summer Leadership Institute in New Orleans, where she worked with dancers and other social activists to serve the New Orleans community. She also did a residency with Shaka Zulu to study the traditions of mask dance in New Orleans. Latanya is the artistic diector and choreographer for Dimensions‘ youth ensemble, Dimensions Extensions Performing Ensemble (DEPE). She joins us to talk about the 20th Anniversary performance of Rites of Passage, Sunday, Dec. 5, 3 p.m. in Oakland. Visit www.dimensionsdance.org
