Radio Show #10: The Breakup Mixtape

May 6, 2010 by

Everyone has to go through it at some point—that one breakup that changes you forever. You lie, cheat, and by the end want to bludgeon each other with bricks or something. Even if you don’t want to believe it, it gets better, and as they say, time heals all wounds. In our 1 hour tribute […]

Radio Show #7: Pioneers of Sound

The theme of the show this week was the firsts of the firsts. It took a whole lot of work to compile the playlist, and even more work to judge whether or not something truly was the first of it’s kind, but in the end T and I were pretty happy with the result. If […]

Big ups to Casanova Superfly for covering the show this week. The theme for this weeks show was hip-hop that sampled or was thematically similar to Library, a.k.a. Production, music. For those who are unfamiliar with what production music is: “Production music is the name given to the music owned by production music libraries and […]

Third show down, and subject wise perhaps my favorite show (which isn’t hard when you only have three shows to pick from). This week T and I were joined by Gonzo, who among other things, doesn’t appreciate Nas’ lyrical skills—¡que triste! But to each his own I guess. Regardless, if you didn’t get a chance […]

Eventually we decided that it would be fun to look for records where the subject matter is the rapper, either the artist themselves or another rapper. This of course included […]

Ever since Horace first called out his man Virgil in the propempticon Odes 1.3, the proverbial “shout out” to contemporaries has been a thematic staple amongst the artistically gifted. Authors Ernest Hemingway, Jack Kerouac, and Hunter S. Thompson often posited both themselves and their colleagues as main characters in their novels or short-stories. Bob Dylan […]

First Show over, Weezy too Hott to handle

After much obsessing, running around, and song editing, the BreakBeat Axiom Radio show went on the air yesterday (or perhaps today, depending on where you put midnight to 1 am). The entire day was plagued by technical issues (Murphy’s Law for the win), ever since I started editing Q-tip’s Won’t Trade for radio use. I’m […]
