  • SPECIAL REPORT: Hip Hop and Race - A NY Hip Hop Report Talk Show Town Hall

    in Music

    Hip hop music and culture were born due to an incredibly unique real-world atmosphere, and since its inception, has always documented real life issues, often serving as a raw, unfiltered look at urban America through the eyes of those with a perspective like few others. Once dubbed the "CNN of the streets," hip hop has suffered something of an imposed identity crisis in recent years, being forced into a formulaic box by profit-seeking media conglomerates, seemingly more eager to produce cookie cutter music and prop up a certain sub-genre of rap superstar, at the expense of the huge range that exists in the overall music and culture.

    As always, New York plays a huge part of this issue, but while NYC is still the Mecca, the issues facing hip hop that deal with race, have become a national -- even international -- issue worth discussing on its own. Add to this, the current turbulent relations between many Americans and the institutions supposedly designed "to serve and protect" them, based largely on the unequal treatment served to certain segments of the population.

    In this special episode of The NY Hip Hop Report, we'll discuss both of these intriguing landscapes, both individually and how they coincide. Well discuss instances of real and perceived "cultural misappropriation" in the hip hop music business, how the industry muscled out pro-Black and "conscious" hip hop music over the years, as well as how current hip hop artists and organizations are at the forefront of the new civil rights movement, yet, rarely receive recognition or assistance, even from hip hop's most powerful figures.

    If there is any episode that we need your input, it's this one. We'll be taking calls all night from listeners and a couple of special call-in guests. Join us, and join the conversation!

    Hasan Salaam + Jay Z, Russell Simmons & Gov. Cuomo + NY rap on top

    in Music

     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.

Join hosts Manny Faces and Steve Ortiz as they discuss the current hip hop landscape in the Mecca of it all.

    We'll discuss music being released, from the 'big names' as well as independent and underground artists. We'll talk about venues, closing down, and some opening their doors for hip hop-related events. 

    We'll be sure to talk about the other aspects of hip hop that are often missing from the conversation, including grafitti and art, B-Boying and dance and DJing.

    We'll probably talk about, criticize, and give credit where due to other hip hop media, organizations and individuals who are doing what needs to be done to keep the full spectrum of hip hop music and culture alive in the Big Apple.

    And we'll happily debate anyone who has the notion that New York hip hop is unremarkable. So if you think this is the case, we want to hear from you.

    LIVE starting at 10pm, New York hip hop's #1 talk radio show is on the air, and ready to talk with you about the greatest culture in the greatest city in the world.
