Breakdown FM: Going In & Knockin’ Heads #37 on All day Play Radio

Click HERE to Peep podcast

This is a dope show where we started off with new music from one of my favorite groups people need to watch for Canary Sing. This Seattle duo initially linked up during ¬†Youth Speaks/ Brave New Voices slam. They liked the way each vibed and decided to combine forces. Over the years they made it a point to focus on being tight lyricists… a quick listen to their songs shows mission accomplished. These women are no joke…

As you can tell from the playlist we decided to take folks on a musical journey back through time with special emphasis on songs that address the issue of police terrorism. We kicked off the set with a classic from Schoolly D called ‘Its Krack’, we overlaid that beat with a speech from the late Kwame Toure who was then known as Stokely Carmichael who headed SNCC. He’s talking at a Free Huey Newton Rally in 1968 about white supremacy and American oppression and how it impacted ¬†people all over the world. We followed it up with several songs from Bay Area rappers Paris and Sellassie .

A couple of other cuts to check for include Kool G Rap‘s ‘On the Run‘, MC Shan‘s ‘Freedom‘ and Trouble Funk Express‘ ‘Trouble Funk Express which is a Go Go version of the B-Boy classic Trans-europe Express
