    Take It Personal (Ep 58: A Homage to Collabos Pt. 2) with Ras Kass

    The passing of Kobe Bryant have gutted so many of us. The last few days have been joyless and while we recorded this show prior to his death, we felt a last minute edit was in necessary to properly pay respects.

    On Episode 58, we continue with Part 2 our Homage to Collabos special. We’re joined by one of the greatest lyricists to bless the mic, Ras Kass. We discuss collaborating with Xzibit, DJ Premier, Dr. Dre and Saafir. We learn about his relationship with Coolio and the initial concerns with appearing on Chino XL’s Riiot. We find out 2Pac once requested 50 tickets to his show and learned what happened with The Horseman.

    We got music by Big L, Tha Alkaholiks. Mic Geronimo, Fat Joe, Lord Finesse, Mobb Deep, DMX, Noreaga, The Roots, Organized Konfusion, Ras Kass and we show extra love to The Abstract.

    RIP Kobe

    Take It Personal (Ep 57: A Homage to Collabos) with Spice 1

    The art of collaborating is nothing new. It’s actually more prominent than ever, but mainly to mask the lack of talent these days. Guest spots can offer important co-signs, sometimes a necessary one. Whether it’s initiated by the label or the artist, “the collabo” was a beautiful thing in the 90s. There’s an unwritten rule that if you gave a verse, you’d later receive a verse. The “friends and favors” card was often used back then. Collabos helped gain exposure, the ability to cross-sell and increased your album sales. Sometimes, you jumped started your career off a guest appearance, like Busta Rhymes on ATCQ’s Scenario. If you had the pull, the budget or just wanted to put on someone from your own camp, you did that. Classic collabos helped launch the careers of Nas, Big L, Redman, Keith Murray, AZ and Snoop Doggy Dogg. You had memorable collabos verses from Kid Hood (Scenario Remix), LL Cool J (Rampage), Biggie (Flava In Ya Ear Remix), Inspectah Deck (Above The Clouds), Capadonna (Winter Warz), R.A. The Rugged Man (Uncommon Valor), Foxy Brown (I Shot Ya Remix), Kendrick Lamar (Control) and just about every Big Pun, Jadakiss, Andre 3000, Black Thought and Canibus verse.

    A Homage To Collabos features some of favorites, some remixes and some really obscure collabos. It’s also sequenced in a 6 degrees of Kevin Bacon kind away to help with the flow. We’ll be releasing A Homage To Collabos Pt. 2 with Ras Kass next week to show you 2020, we ain’t playing no more!

Do yourself a favour

DJ Premier tribute was too good! Quality mixes and some education for those of us that came in just after the golden era of hip hop

chapter thrive ,

Philaflava was the jump off!

Used to find a lot of great music and discussion through the message boards! Love seeing this continuation of the concept and pushing the underground rap side! Keep it up!
