    Take It Personal (Ep 147: Bangers & Mash)

    On episode 147, we're turning up the BPMs for some head smashers. You're going to call Safelite for a new windshield after this episode. 



    We've got bangers from Ghostface Killah, M.O.P, Nature, Smif N Wessun, Pete Rock, Juggaknots, Ras Kass, Non Phixon, Cali Agents, Darc Mind and Vakill.

    At the break, we discuss freestyle rappers. That's right, we talk Harry Mack all the way to J.U.I.C.E. and why we consider them the Harlem Globetrotters of Rap.



    We attempt to understand Dre's distain for certain battle rappers and white rappers and Kevlar does his best Aesop Rock impersonation. We also talk about some recent movies and shows like Tires and decide Midnight Marauders is the next album to get the 360-Treatment like Paul's Boutique. And now, let's start the show.

Loweski ,

A must have for any hip hop fan

Take it personal is one of the best hip hop podcasts on the planet. It reminds me of the college radio shows I grew up listening to religiously. The music selection is AMAZING, surprising and always bumping. The Mixing is impeccible and makes you rewind just to hear the beat blends. Best of all, it is clear that these guys are doing this out of pure love for the music. A MUST LISTEN for any hip hop fan.

Carlos WP ,

Dope show

A show focus on the era that I grew up in, my favorite times in hip-hop. Well curated.

Incredible podcast. Love the respect and the flavor these guys give to the gold age of growing up. You need to listen if you love real hip hop!
