When are we getting some new Iller Than Theirs? Haven't heard anything for a while.
  4:49pm BAJE:

sorry for the sloppiness yall, this is some real off the cuff, tangled wires business, plus Probe just spilled mad beer on my living room floor
  4:49pm johnnyNYC:

straight bonkers
  4:50pm Scott Thorough:

Kray, come through
  4:50pm Ike:

@Joe D: yeah, you heard me. All I heard there was lame-ass rhymes about AKs, money, drugs, guns, etc. Mainstream horseshit. Any of these underground rappers Billy usually plays have 100000% more creativity than Biggie at least in that track.
  4:52pm Radioman:

Ah, you rescued KUSF, didn't you?
  4:52pm Sam Morris (Lesson Six):

@Ike @Joe D - These are the reasons I started lessonsix.com. I quickly ran out of patience for all that mainstream shit. Let's just hope guys like Modern Shark and others are here to keep that Cliché-Free Hip-Hop alive.
  4:53pm Carmichael:

OK, thank you Billy and your friends. Mr. Hamilton is kickin' it sufficiently!
  4:54pm Radioman:

Sam Morris, I think you are right again. Therefore I am listening to WFMU!
  4:56pm johnnyNYC:

the albee square market is going to be some sort of food market now I've heard. get your door knockers and fronts elsewhere.
  4:57pm djspidermanc:

@ Radioman ,deffo geeza.
off the cuff was cool as fuck BAJE, thanks for lettin us in your house. i allways find a sock is good at soakin up the house beer ponds.
mainstream = drainsdream . long live WFMfuckinU
  4:58pm Ike:

Thanks Sam! Looks good....
  4:58pm BAJE:

@Johnny, I will email you back about that shirt after the show.
  4:59pm BAJE:

  5:27pm djspidermanc:

thanks to Amanda for board-op'ing at WFMU studios. thanks to Baje One for opening up his home to WFMU. thanks to all the fine talented folks with Modern Shark + all the local NYC artists affiliated with them that they played on the air today. Thanks to Brooklyn NY and to Foxy Brown for the suggestion that we should do a show in every NYC boro - I agree and now want to do that. Have done Manhattan already but never the Boogie Down or Queens or Staten Island. Next week will be back in the WFMU Jersey City studios. May 6th, 13th, and 20th will be in San Francisco studios of the KUSF in Exile DJs doing three live shows with sets from a musically diverse range of KUSF in Exile DJs
