Boom Bap Radio – Nov. 9, 2013

Happy 40th!  – Universal Zulu Nation

The BBR crew joined like Voltron with the 40th Anniversay celebration for the mighty Universal Zulu Nation in this episode. We shouted out Afrika Bambaataa and the Soulsonic Force as well as many of the participants in the weeklong tribute that recognized the many contributions of one of the tightest and original pioneers of the artform. With J-Crush as our guide, we pay tribute to the likes of Grand Wizard Theodore, Fat Boys, Ultramagnetic MC’s; Grand Master Caz; Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five and more Zulu’s and Hip-Hop pioneers . However, the din of activity from the newsroom was deafening.  The roll out of Obamacare is still disappointing; DMX did get arrested again and the Toronto Mayor Rob Ford is still smoking crack. What the hell is that – an elephant? Nope, it’s Boom Bap Radio!
