On this episode of Field Afrikan Radio we're going to take a break from "heavy" discussions and have some fun discussing the culture of Hip-Hop. We're going to give our top 5 list on questions like "Best lyricist", "Best Producers", "Our Personal Favorite Top 5 emcees" etc. We will discuss why we think certain rap music is labeled "real Hip-hop" and why other styles aren't which means the subject of regional/coastal prejudices will be discussed. We will also discuss the politics of what is happening in the Hip-Hop culture in general. If you enjoy Black music and the artistry of the Hip-Hop culture come and build with us. We're bringing the barbershop to the Field Afrikan Radio Show and remember everything we discuss is always from a RBG perspective.
Join us this Wednesday night at 9pm for a very special show family. We are going to discuss is D'Angelo's latest album titled "BLACK MESSIAH". Our show topic will be "Will Black Messiah Restore Black Music". This album came out of no where around 11pm this past Sunday night. I have listened to it about 10 times in less than 24 hours. It is certainly a instant classic family. So what we are going to do this week. I'm going to have a round table with some music industry heavyweights to build on this album and black music. I will be joined by former Bad Boy A&R "Barry Bondz" aka Hustle Management. I will also have the Founder and Owner of Smashmouth FM Mr. N'gai Scriven. We will also be joined by musician, songwriter, producer and performer Brian Keith. I had to have my Brotha from Dayton, Ohio on this show as well. The homie Chris Surratt. He is a member of the trio called Christopher as well as a producer and songwriter. We will also have a few other guest on the show that will be named later on. So please tell a friend and relative about this powerful show. Our call in number is 619-393-2813.
