NY Hip Hop Report...

I am so happy that there seems to finally be a discussion in hip hop about the "state of hip hop". I used to get angry and all pissed off when my favorite rapper didn't get a chance on Hot 97 or MTV, but these days it just doesn't matter...kind of.

During this digital age I can find artist, and I stress ARTIST, online and on social media. My new thing is listening to podcasts that are curated with hip hop in mind.  Currently, my favorite podcasts are:

The Combat Jack Show
We have been a fan of Mr. Reggie Osse for quite some time now. He had a DOPE blog called Daily Mathematics and I miss really his work, but the podcast is a great replacement. Seriously, if you love Hip Hop you have to check some of these classic interviews. Shouts to Premium Pete, Dallas Penn, Ben Hameen, Matt Raz, and everyone else that has been a part of the show from the beginning to now.

Shots Fired
A member of the Loud Speaker Network, they sit down and have discussions with non traditional artists (my opinion). I enjoy their banter and they have interesting guests...some of which I have never heard of. Thank you Jeff Weiss & MC Nocando for introducing me to hip hop artists that I probably would never hear of.

The NY Hip Hop Report
This is my new favorite podcast and not a week has gone without me listening.  Manny Faces and his Co-Host Steve Ortiz..."from the Bronx where the people are fresh" have similar sensibilities to me. Manny Faces has petitioned the FCC to take Hot 97 off of the air, AMAZING.

Juan Epstein
Featuring Cipha Sounds and Peter Rosenberg these guys are funny.

  3. HELLO FRIENDS AM LINDA COLLINS FROM CANADA MY BEST DECISSION I MADE ON HOW TO GET MY MARRIAGE BACK once when i went to Africa in February this year on a business summit. I meant a man who’s name is {Prophet Harry} he is really powerful and could help pray to bring back one’s gone, lost, misbehaving lover and prayers for good job and financial blessings .I’m now happy & a living testimony cos the man i had wanted to marry left me 3 weeks before our wedding and my life was upside down cos our relationship has been on for 3years. I really loved him, but his mother was against us and he had no good paying job. So when i met this {Prophet Harry}, i told him what happened and explained the situation of things to him. At first i was undecided, skeptical and doubtful, but i just gave it a try. And in 3 days when i returned to Canada, my boyfriend (now husband) called me by himself and came to me apologizing that everything had been settled with his mom and family and he got a new job interview so we should get married. I didn’t believe it cos the {Prophet Harry} only asked for my name and my boyfriends name and all i wanted him to do. Well we are happily married now and we are expecting our little kid, and my husband also got the new job and our lives became much better. His email is
