Working on a radio-mix-putting-up-backlog and holy shit. It’s a recent WVFS Underground Railroad mix. Ain’t had one of those in a looooooooooooooong time, so when I actually remembered to hit record before I started beating up these Audio Technicas (stop laughing – that’s really what I mix on at V89) I figured I’d actually go to the next step, and share it with y’all. Let me know what you think.
Public Enemy frontman, Chuck D, came to FAMU to speak at a conference against violence. As well as giving a masterful speech, Chuck took time to speak to me, Stess, J.See, Slickgrease, Willdabeast and LQ. This is the 3rd Chuck D interview featured on this site – we’re collecting them like Pokemon!
It’s been ages since I tossed a WVFS mix up here, so I figured I’d take care of that little issue by now only upping this week’s mix, but the entire show! The reason? A whole first hour of UK Hiphop, centered around the appearance of my homie Insane Macbeth for a dope phone interview direct from London. As well as that, the usual great music in the mix broken up by disses to the entire city of Chicago, studio vomiting, and much hilarity at the plight of the Miami Hurricanes. (I see you Big Lo.)

My homie J.See just dropped his new mixtape ‘Magnum For Verbal Intercourse’. The project features 15 tracks from the West Coast emcee and features guest appearances by C-Red, E&J, and M.E.R.C. It’s also mixed for your steering pleasure by my good self. Hit the links below to download, and make sure you check out J.See, me, and my homie Dermo every Saturday on V89’s Underground Railroad.
Slightly out of sequence (the Blazin’ mixes right below are newer) but I’m sure you’ll forgive me. Here’s the last episode of lunacy from WVFS. Moi on the mix, with Jay-C and the Reverend Slickgrease ably assisting on the talking tip.

The Underground Railroad, live on WVFS 89.7 (01/08/11)
Why the Kobe pic? Well, about halfway through this mix I dropped the legendary 5 mic-classic “K.O.B.E.” by Mr Bryant, which features Tyra Banks on the hook. This being the Underground Railroad, and all, its important to let the listeners hear what a runaway train crashing into the buffers actually sounds like.
Back in the saddle at V89 after a few weeks of laziness, with an hour long mix of mostly new music. Proper. If you’re an artist, and have music that you think I need to play – drop a comment here, or hit me on twitter (@AtotheL)
