This week we are moving north to where hip-hop got its start. Does that say Harlem World? Yea you’re reading that right. We’re talking about one of Harlem’s favorite sons, Killa Cam’ron Giles. Massively influential in the industry, we uncover how Cam got his start, his love of all things pink, and his obsession with international politics. Did you know Cam'ron is real life cape designer? Are you not following @mr_camron on the 'gram? All this and more on Rap of Ages.
Remember skits? Like that time you were listening to hot track after hot track only to be interrupted by a non-sequitur voicemail, radio call in show, or Method Man's torture chamber. Well we were trying to get our act together to record this week, but this was the best we could do. Enjoy.
This week, we examine Brian's favorite artist of 1998, DMX and yes, his dogs bite. Love him or hate him, DMX is always on message. But despite his whopping 25 arrests, did you know DMX has a softer side? He moonlights as a pastor and loves Zoolander. Join us this week as we stop, drop, shut 'em down, and open up shop.
Sick and tired of everyone telling you what to do? Put your hands up, get up stand up, fight for your rights, man I'm exhausted. Sit back and enjoy a quick run through hip-hop's history with audience engagement.
This week we are staying in the Dirty South were they make you say uhh!!! Master P is a renaissance man. Seriously. While building out his No Limit empire, he was also playing basketball in the NBA, wrestling in the WCW, acting, directing movies… you name it, P was 'bout it. Rap of Ages is 'bout it 'bout it.
This week we back, back, back it up to talk Juvenile, the Hot Boys, and teenage 'Lil Wayne and the smash hit "Back that Azz up". Did you know this song was only made because of fear of stand-up comedians? Or that "Back that Ass up" can't be trademarked? And what exactly is a Dick Bandit? This 1998 bounce classic still shapes hip-hop as we know it today. Report to the dance floor, and drop it like it's 400 degreez hot.
