I recently had the honour of hosting a one hour radio show with Emotionz, on 100.5FM, about the history of Vancouver hip-hop. We touched base on several topics including the rise of Battle Axe, The Krispy Bisket Show, F.W.U.H. The Rascalz, Q-Continuum, Dj Science and much much more. Although one single hour is not nearly enough time to cover all of Vancouver’s great hip-hop happenings, we tried our best, and I think we did a pretty solid job. I have received some good feed back and a bunch of questions about the music that was played and talked about. So, I decided to post the show up for Download with a detailed list of what was played and links to most of the stuff we talked about……Enjoy.
1. Blind Wid Da Science-The Rascalz
2. Endangered Species-Swollen Members
3. Push It Along-Moka Only
5. The Only One-Q-Continuum

The Krispy Bisket Show
The Krispy Bisket Show is definitely huge historically for Vancouver hip-hop, Airing every Saturday at midnight on 90.9FM Hosts DJ Kilocee and Incredible Ease go over hip-hop current events and spin great music for a solid two hours. you can check them out HERE>>>>>http://krispybisket.podomatic.com
unfortunately Incredible Ease has lymphoma cancer and is officially in the stem cell program in the United States. This has been a very long process for Incredible Ease and his family. Ease went through Cancer treatment in Canada but as he is an American citizen he was not covered by medical. His bills became too high, his family was not able to keep up as the cost of cancer treatment is very high, eventually Ease was cut off of treatment. Thus fundraising began. you can help this local legend through these hard time s by donating HERE>>>>>https://www.facebook.com/RaisingMoneyForEase
I still have the D.J. Science tape that was given to me at that Grizzlies game back in 95, It still works and i still bump it! this tape opened me up to a bunch of hip-hop that i may have not discovered myself for years. be sure to follow this dude https://twitter.com/dj_science
