ElZhi from the bleak city of Detroit makes the most vibrant colorful music - as does Chuuwee from Sacramento -
Avatar 7:16pm Billy Jam:

IMO this Craig G track kills it in a true hip-hop love letter a la Common's "I Used To Love H.E.R."

all this (mostly new) music on today's show enriches my hip-hop sou; and makes me never want to quit rap…..I just can't - even if I tried…..next week is last week of this show for the season - two weeks is another installment of WFMU goes to Spain to Prima Vera Fest in Barcelona…..Hope to return for the summer season in this same time slot - if so will be doing series of Bay shows live remotes with Marcel M running shit back in NJ at WFMU studios

Great show tonight, as always. Thanks Billy!
Avatar 7:47pm Cheri Pi:

Are you going to Spain?
Avatar 7:50pm Billy Jam:

return of POWERULE -with Large Pro -in a killer sick track that is autobiographical and honest and real - and even cross references older early nineties hit "Smooth"
Avatar 7:52pm Billy Jam:

"smooth but I don't get upset" - hey BLACK POPE _ so good to have you here….Yes and No Cheri - will not be at Prima Vera Spain but will be at the Prima Vera deli in North Oakland near Oakland Tech eating a $2.50 cheese sandwich listening to FMU online
