This week our #TapeOfTheWeek is from Dallas bred heavy hitters A.Dd+! It is titled DiveHiFlyLo: Every Man is King and it’s free! *Listen to our show here*

DiveHiFlyLo

I’m stupid excited to introduce a #TapeOfTheWeek for A.Dd+ as they are from my stomping grounds of Dallas/Ft.Worth, Texas! I’ve been on them for a while as my cousins link up with them sometimes. E-Yo be hatin not showin my city love but it’s cool though because he did this week *shrugs*. E-Yo once again killed the airwaves for two hours of pure, unadulterated, underground awesomeness.

We had a full house with Dj E-Yo and I. Dj Mars, whose new show airs before ours, dropped by, Dj Beeeaaamerrrr (gotta say it like Schoolboy Q would) who has a show on Saturday and Dj Ecclesiastes 5foot7, who is currently working on a DOPE comic book called #Ralfie&Rockwell also came by. They were all too scared to “get on the mic doe” Anyway, I’m not going to talk your ear off just listen to the show!

My City. Shout out to A.Dd+

For our #TapeOfTheWeek the homie Danny Brown dropped a new album by the name of “Old” on the Tuesday before our show last week! The album is riddled with DOPE beats and songs and a few features from current hip hop royalty. Black Hippy members Schoolboy Q and Ab-Soul both contributed to Dope Fiend Rental & Way Up Here respectively. 25 Bucks featuring Purity Ring is sick, Kush Coma is definitely a banger with A$ap Rocky & ZelooperzDubstepFloat On & Wonderbread are among the other standouts on an album that truly defines Danny Brown. He seems to have fused Danny from “Hybrid” with the dirty ODB-esque foul mouthed Danny from “XXX”

Hip Hop History is an event that goes down at the Smoke N Barrel Tavern where six to seven Dj’s play their favorite music from a certain era in hip hop. Usually at the end of the night there is some big finale such as a dual or triple Dj battle. E-Yo’s set was titled “The New Underground”

This week we tackled a lot of new hip hop as school starts next Monday. Earl Sweatshirt’s Doris dropped Tuesday and was our #TapeOfTheWeek. Sweatshirt is of Odd Future fame. We played everything from new Childish Gambino – Centipede to Rapsody – Jedi Code to Yasiin Bey – Black Jesus. Sadly, we reported that Jean Grae’s mother, the South African Songbird, passed and we played some Jean’s classic rhymes in honor of this.

In this show we address the Kendrick Lamar controversy! What a show it was, we even had a whole set dedicated to #RappersKendrickNamed and it was ON FIRE!

This show has a talk heavy segment because hip hop drama called for it. From what I was told by our fans out on Dickson Street last night, it was an engaging conversation. Head over the The Concrete Schoolyard to join the conversation.

El Barrrney AKA Sandy Beats’ own Bernard Oliver focuses on social media and media relations. 

Both Djs focus on the online presence of the Concrete Schoolyard in the form of 1 1/2 hour podcasts.
