A week after surviving a historic blizzard, the Boom Bap Radio trio of The C.O., Angry Engineer and Masta Talka chat up the week’s events, which seemed to have a decidedly white tinge to them. Donald Trump brought on Sarah Palin for support, while dissing Megyn Kelley, Martin Shkreli began talking slick to Ghostface and the Wu and a white guy is slated to play Michael Jackson in an upcoming movie. Sounds like a white-alicious week to me. But despite near whiteout conditions, Hip Hop, sweet, sweet Hip Hop, rallied to save the day. The Donald lost in Iowa and a teacher in Arizona was exonerated and was correct, her students were calling her the N-word. But the music was so, so funky. We revisited Rampage’s boomin’ new hit “Pound Cake,” honored LL on the Hollywood Walk of Fame; and played funky tracks from Whodini, Big Daddy Kane, ODB, the Wu, the Gza, NaS and Papoose, to name a few. Yo Damon, come get you cousin – It’s Boom Bap Radio.
