SORT BY Relevancy
As always, big news in hip hop happens in NY, and can have effects on the industry overall. The big story this week is that Hot 97 Program Director and morning show co-host Ebro Darden will no longer hold the PD spot. We'll discuss how this will affect the New York hip hop radio landscape, if at all.
We'll also be talking about the momentous #RiseTogether concert event coming up on March 22, as several different factions of independent New York hip hop, with decades of experience between them, will all come together for one concert event at Littlefield in Brooklyn. We'll hear from Silent Knight, who, along with The Band Called FUSE helped to orchestrate this fine example of the diversity and willingness to rise together of the NY hip hop scene.
We'll also recap a couple of great events we attended this week, including the BK Nation show and the Legends of Hip Hop show at Resorts World Casino!
As always, we'll report and discuss some new releases, and take YOUR CALLS LIVE!

URL BATTLE RAP ARENA HAS A RECAP SHOW on Tsu Surf and Hollow Da Don
On this week’s edition of Scottscope Talk Radio, the roundtable will celebrate the 20th anniversary of Brian De Palma’s classic gangster film Carlito’s Way! Is it a suitable companion piece to Scarface? Is it even better than Scarface? Is it a worthy adaptation of Edwin Torres’s novels? How has it held up over the past 20 years? Has it been unfairly overlooked when recalling modern crime films? Why has Brian De Palma only made 3 forays into the crime genre throughout his career? Is the shootout a Grand Central Station among the best such sequences ever filmed? Was New York City truly this dangerous in the 1970’s?
We’ll also be celebrating the 20th anniversary of Snoop Dogg’s classic debut, Doggystyle? Has it held up well over the years? Has its classic status been overstated? Why did The Source Magazine initially give it only four mics? Did Dr. Dre actually produce the whole album, or did Daz do much of the heavy lifting this time out? Did it set an impossibly high bar that Snoop was never again able to reach? Did it solidify G-Funk as the next phase of West Coast gangsta rap? Was it the best album of its era?
We’ll also be discussing New York City’s lack of relevance and presence in modern Hip-Hop. Are the DJ’s and radio stations to blame? Are the artists and fans to blame? Is a true comeback even in the cards? Is Ebro right about Hot 97’s detractors? Are they merely a bunch of lonely losers who spend all their time on the internet? Is it time for New York rappers to finally evolve? Is arrogance and complacency keeping them from doing so?
