    Take It Personal (Ep 90: 1993 Tribute Pt. 1)

    Episode 90 is our 1st installment of our 1993 Tribute. Last year we put together a strong case as to why we thought 1995 was one of the greatest years. This time around we're paying homage to 1993, my favorite year in hip-hop.

    We'll got the classics, the commercial jawns, the remixes and in typical TIP fashion, the obscure records as well. We aren't sure how deep this tribute will get, but all we'll give you everything we've got! At the break, we discuss our favorite '93 albums, the sleepers, the wack, the  guilty pleasures and at the 2nd break its all about the WU!

    Enjoy episode 90 as we intertwine some memorable movie scene with very memorable music. This is your 1993 time capsule and it's brought to you by your friends at Take It Personal Radio.

    Take It Personal (Peter Rosenberg Interview)

    Take It Personal (Peter Rosenberg Interview)

    We're joined by radio and TV personality, Peter Rosenberg. Whether you know him from HOT 97, ESPN or WWE Wrestling, you know Peter is never short of opinions or great stories.

    We get into his new album "Real Late" and we chop it up about HOT 97, WWE and all things hip-hop. This interview was a lot of fun. It was funny, nerdy, insightful and as usual, Peter shares some great stories about icon legends such as Q-Tip, Ric Flair and Mike Tyson. We also hear about his least favorite on-air guests, we talk MF DOOM, Roc Marciano, Randy "Macho Man" Savage and the thin line between white and hate in hip-hop.  You definitely don't want to miss this discussion!

So Beyond Any Expectation

Just completely blown away by this podcast. The level of curation and effort that’s put into this is really impressive. It’s like they’re making each episode just for me.

Take it personal show

Yo, I’ve been following philaflava for a long time. In my opinion one of the only podcasts that deliver the rawest hip hop music out here right now. Reminds me of The stretch and bobbito and Sway and Tech days. I’m an artist so when I get in my mood for some art I bang to “Take it personal” podcast to inspire me. Keep up the goodness. Love ya’ll. Peace
