    Take It Personal (Ep 72: 1995 Tribute)

    Episode 72 is our 1st installment of our 1995 Tribute. We're about to make one hell of a convincing case as to why 1995 was the greatest year in hip-hop. Why it had the best production, the best singles, the best remixes and some of the best replay value in hip-hop history. And this is all coming from few guys who didn't even pick 1995, when we did our favorite years episode a few years back. We've got an awful lot to cover, so stay tuned as we plan on creating several 1995 episodes. For now, crack the 40, roll that blunt and let's take a trip down memory lane.

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
