It's one of those times in America when it's hard to just act like everything is normal. So while we are going to have our show, and continue with the normal things we do (reviewing and previewing NY hip hop events, delivering a few new releases of note), we'd be remiss in our duties if we didn't address and speak on the issues of the day.
As such, we'll start with a discussion about an artist "town hall" meeting we attended in Harlem, addressing police brutality against the minority community. We hope to have some of New York's hip hop activists, including folks like Rebel Diaz, who traveled to Ferguson during the height of the protests, and we'll happily take your calls on the subject.
It's an important time, and hip hop does have a part to play in these issues. We'll be here to talk about it with you.
Tune in, and call up. We know your voice is important.
Tonight we will discuss the new issues released by DC COMICS this week. Also how much of an impact did Marvel's Phase 3 announcement did over DC Film Universe announcmenet. Join us tonight at 8:30 PM PST / 11:30 PM EST.

Though only in her 20's, singer-songwriter Megan Slankard has independently sold nearly 30,000 copies of four independently released CDs. Megan’s newest release, A Token Of The Wreckage (Spring 2011), is "an edgy alt-rock release that is a breath of fresh air" (Maverick Magazine), “gleaming, grooving, and gritty” (Minor 7th), with "thoughtful construction and clever wordplay" (Performer Magazine). The CD, which was recorded with help from David Bryson (Counting Crows) and Jerry Becker (Train), held a spot in the 10-best selling albums on CD Baby for weeks. In addition to 12 new songs, the CD also includes Megan’s first official music video, written and directed by Matthew Ward. The video has earned 18,000 plays on Vimeo and You Tube combined. Megan and her music have appeared on TLC’s “What Not To Wear”, which generated purchases by TV viewers that placed her CD “Freaky Little Story” on the #5 spot on Amazon.com CD sales charts and on the Top-10 Rock Bestseller list on CDBaby.com. Because of the episode’s popularity, the show’s producers featured her in a follow-up episode a year later, bringing “Freaky Little Story” and her third release, “A Little Extra Sun” back into the Top-10.* Megan has started a new project " inDIYe". A new series features interviews and silly sketches with independent musicians. Take a look inside the lives of your favorite indie artists. Join us as we talk about the first and Second series and the behind the scenes filming.

The long-awaited-by-some return of NY rapstress Remy Ma after serving a moderately long prison sentence, had the rap world buzzing, even if a bit premature, thanks to irrespnsible "reporting" by some of hip hop's loudest mouthpieces. Her return was punctuated by a quick freestyle assist by DJ Khaled, the inevitable "Is she going to do anything of value?" and "What does this mean for Nicki Minaj?" discussions.
The combination of all thes things lead us to tonight's initial topics:
1. Can Remy Ma make any headway in today's rap landscape?
2. Why do so many people who are praising her return, have to disparage current rap queen Nicki Minaj at the same time? What is it about the rap audience that has a problem with there being MULTIPLE successful artists at one time, particularly female?
3. But if we're going to compare, let's analyze the freestyle by Remy and the verse of Beyonce's Flawless remix that Nicki Minaj dropped almost simultaneously, and what both releases might mean to both artists.
4. (I'm sure we'll slip in some snark at the irresponsible "hip hop media" who once again, carry on as if spreading misinformation to millions of people ain't no big thing.)
5. As always, event reviews and previews and some new, noteworthy NY rap releases as well.
Join us live. Call in with your thoughts. We expect this to be a heated discussion, and we're looking forward to your input.
