It was a super long day of running around the city and prepping new episodes of The Collective on NUVOtv but once I got home it time to find new records and gems to air on the radio show at midnight. It as then I found out the passing of the Godfather Of House music Frankie Knuckles had passed away. It was a pretty heavy moment for a lot of us but I sat there not really believing it. In celebration of his life the final hour of the show is dedicated to his music. It’s also a free download! I hope you enjoy it as much as the opening track from Brazil’s Karol Conka! Also new Machine Drum, Curtis Mayfield X Circle Research, Mo Kolours, Fat Freddy’s Drop, Grace Jones X Ximeno and an exclusive listen of the new Speak record featuring LA songstress Nikko Gray.

This week’s guest on the podcast is emcee Waldo. Waldo caught my attention with his unique style and various rhyming patterns but also his production via Sango. When the two work together on a track I think it’s fair to say there is nothing like it. Waldo is able to set a mood during the first few bars of any song and have been the soundtrack during some of my long drives and travels. Listen in as he discusses life in Grand Rapids, growing up in a religious home and what currently inspires him.

First! Let me state, this is not the end all be all of the next generation of emcees! These are a few off the top of my head. I always try to distance myself from musical purists and folks who live in the past by stating “It’s not like the old days”. I love what’s new and aways pride myself by embracing the new. I love where music is going across the musical spectrum and I love this shift in Rap today. The next generation of creatives are not only mastering the art of rhyme but the hustle of social media, beat making and producing content to push their brand. These are a few examples. Let me know what you think! Hit me on twitter at @AnthonyValadez and send me your list of emcees, artists who are making moves.

Only 17 years old, Bishop Nehru sounds like an experience veteran storyteller on the mic. We got to chop it up at SXSW where saw first hand his shyness when around new energy but after minutes of hanging he begins to get excited when talking about new projects. I found myself at the Mass Appeal jump off in Austin and was super excited for him when NAS brought him on stage and proclaimed him the future of rap music. Grab his latest, Nehruvia here.

Clear Soul Forces remind me of something you might have listened to in the Summer of 94. Get No Better was my first introduction to the group’s style. I love the rhymes and specifically their beat selection and word play with each other’s cadences. Go cop their latest album entitled Gold PP7!

Chester Watson delivers with his monotone style. Phantom popped up on my radar at SXSW via word of mouth. There will never be another Guru however it’s great to see a young emcee deliver in the same form and still execute such passion. Grab his latest free release here.

Waldo plays with a simple vocal delivery that could easily land him a record deal on the majors and commercial radio but then hits you up aside the head with a metaphor that might be too heavy for them. Waldo also has some of the best beats in the game that match his flow perfectly. Easily one of my faves!

Gagle hails out of Japan on the Jazzysport label. They have been sending me some quality music for a minute and through this relationship I have been able to discover a lot of their sounds. It’s obvious I can’t understand a single word from Gagle but I still sense the passion and skills behind the mic.

Super good to be back on LA’s airwaves after a 2 week break thank in part to musical adventures across the country. Nothing beats being at home with my pup, eating at my local eateries and being back in the basement on Monday nights. New gems from Waldo with the Sango revision plus cuts from Jay Electronica, Oscar Key Sung, Jazzanova on the remix tip. On the young rap front, cuts from Nia Keturah, Chester Watson and Bishop Nehru who I saw at SXSW and kilt it to the point Nas had to come out and give this young emcee the co/sign. Speaking of Nas I dropped One Love in honor of the 20 year Anniversary of Illmatic. Personal favorites include the new Metronomy, BadBadNotGood and Schoolboy Q. Everything else is just fire! Hope you dig!
