25 Joints to Get U Thru Black History Month


We gotten a number of request to do something for Black History month… hence we flipped our All day Play Radio show and dropped some nice gems for Black History month. Below are some classics that often skip us…along with some new joints like Stay Black and Die featuring M1 of dead prez and a number of Bay Area artists including the Jacka, Shamako Noble of Hip Hop Congress and D’Labrie..   Jasiri X has a new one-off his new award-winning album American X, this cut is called ‘Minstrel’… One of my fav’s is the revolutionary cut from Yo Yo called Girls Got a Gun.. It reminded me of just how hard people came during the Afrocentric era in Hip Hop.. Keep in mind there are literally hundreds of records to choose from.. I wanted to get a mixture of old and new and some b-side cuts that might make people perk up a bit..

Below is a link to the Black History Month show…

  1. I just wanted to set the record straight that the song “Just a Minstrel” was the brainchild of Idasa Tariq who in my opinion is one of the next MCs to blow up coming out of Pittsburgh by way of Upstate New York. Idasa not only produced the track but also spits the second verse and the song’s hook. Just a Minstrel also feature’s another one of Pittsburgh’s finest coming out of Philly named Living Proofe who raps first. Thanks again Davey for providing a outlet to MCs like us to get across our message!

Let us know what u think..
