Tonight's show brings another fast paced, funny and informative show. So much in the news this week from the State of the Union speech, the SAFE Act and local politics as well with Sheryl and Ken's unique analysis of the issues of the day. As always you don't want to miss this weeks fun fact and the lying/hypocrite sumbitch of the week!
General discussion: Can conservatives, law abiding gun owners, pro-lifers, and Tea Partier's get their act together to rid New York of Cuomo and RINO Republicans who voted for the SAFE Act and if so, will the Party establishment allow it and is the grassroots unified enough to do it?
Sit back, listen, laugh and be informed!
New York City has been very much part of the public consciousness in recents days, and as hip hop is concerned, we're still the center of the music, culture and politics. This was evident this week as news broke that Jay Z and Russell Simmons both spoke with Governor Cuomo about "reforming the justice system."
Whether or not this was just shrewed PR positioning or not remains to be seen. We'll discuss the meetings and ask the question, "Are Jay Z or Russell Simmons capable representatives of hip hop? Can they make a difference?"
Of course, Jay and Russell weren't the only ones making noise in regards to the protests. Nas and J. Cole participated, and of course, the lesser known, but no less important hip hop-oriented organiztations, artists and 'heads' continue to be out in force.
Speaking of which, we'll hear from MC/activist and more, Hasan Salaam, fresh from his recent album release and amazing interview with our host Manny Faces, on his sister podcast, The Manny Faces Show. He'll give an update on his album, the memorial for affiliate J Arch, and Hasan's upcoming event, celebrating his more "erotic" side activities.
Speaking of J. Cole, along with DJ Premier/Royce the 5' 9" project and Ghostface Killah's new album, a lot of veteran NY artists are bringing great material to the table. While the new jacks including the highly anticipated release from Joey Bada$$ are due out soon, we have to sit back and say, "Damn, New York and NY-influenced hip hop is pretty damn strong right now..."
As we always said it would be.
All this, plus event reviews and previews, and YOUR CALLS.
