Boom Bap Radio – December 1, 2012

Now and Then

In this episode we pay tribute to the genius that is Hip-Hop by playing our usual buffet of scrumptious rhymes, but accented by the songs largely from the rock genre, that inspired songs we’ve all grown to love. The Boom Bap crew without J-Crush, welcome Cousin Ricko and honor the songs that were sampled to create the hits we love.  The CO, Masta Talka and Angry Engineer offer condolences to Macho Camacho, peer over the fiscal cliff, and try to calculate how someone can lose an election, yet still believe they’ve won and deserve a free lunch. Take a look under the hood for the inspirations and melodies that made you bob your head to songs from the likes of the ODB, Jay-Z, De La Soul and the Beasties it’s your fix of Hip-Hop – Boom Bap Radio.
