    I'll save the long description because you just need to hit that play button!

    What you're about to listen to is one of the greatest (if not the greatest) years in hip-hop. We all know '88 is the blueprint with It Takes A Nation of Millions, Critical Beatdown, Straight Outta Compton, Great Adventures of Slick Rick, Follow The Leader, Long Live The Kane, Straight Out The Jungle, By All Means Necessary and Strictly Business.

    But do you really listen to more music from 1988 than 1994? That's the difference and we plan to make the case starting with our 1994 Tribute. In the meantime, here are 6 simple steps we ask from you.

    1. Hit play.

    2. Grab some old Source magazines from '94 to read while listening.

    3. If you're streaming on Spotify or iTunes, please rate and review our show.

    Take It Personal (Ep 106: Head Bangers)

    Episode 106 is going to leave most of you in neck braces. After spending the last few episodes on Kanye West, we're taking it back to the essence of Take It Personal Radio. We've got head bangers from M.O.P., Ghostface Killah, Gang Starr, The Beatnuts, Xzibit, Dilated Peoples, Mobb Deep, Big Pun, Non Phixion and Onyx to name a few. 

    At the break, we discuss the classic indie record The Future Is Now. Ill Bill and Sabac catches some shrapnel in the discussion, but it's all love. We also discuss Black Star's No Fear of Time and Kweli gets annihilated, ain't no love. Other topics include David Chappelle, Onyx, Supreme and we ask where do the biggest supporters of hip-hop reside. This episode is what TIP is all about - plenty of laughs, good discussion and even better music!
