Geo Dept 123: boom boom bap Impromptu Vol. 2

Written by on July 8, 2018

Just played some Jams. Some good beats, some of the early social hip hop songs ever from early 1980s from Brother D, Sweet T, and Toddy T, and some gang peace tracks by Ice Cube and Kam featuring more, and more magic squeezed in there from Kool Keith, Gravediggaz, E-40 and more.

When a ? comes up next to an artist on my show, that means that through my research I could not find where the artist is from. This is the geography department and the original intention of the show is to always try to provide that information the best I can where the artist grew up before age 18. Because I believe that geography and where an artist is from has a major connection to the music they made, especially in the hip hop genre. Without talking to the artist or families I can truly never know exact details.
