6. Spectre (Wordsound Recordings), Self Jupiter (Freestyle Fellowship/Project Blowed)
In this episode we speak to Wordsound Recordings CEO Skiz Fernando and Self Jupiter of Freestyle Fellowship, and we share some essential listening recommendations. Skiz “Spectre” Fernando, AKA The Ill Saint, guides us through some rarely-told history, illuminating the vital connection between Jamaica and NYC, encompassing the dub reggae and early hip hop that would inform his unique approach to beat production and the dark, dusted aesthetics of his label, Wordsound Recordings. We go over the label’s roster including Prince Paul, MC Paul Barman, Sensational, Scotty Hard and Hawd Gankstuh Rappuhs MC’s Wid Ghatz. We also talk about Bill Laswell and the Jungle Brothers’ fated project Crazy Wisdom Masters. Finally, we discuss Skiz’s long-term relationship with Wu-Tang Clan and his forthcoming book, From The Streets of Shaolin: The Wu-Tang Saga. This month’s Patreon bonus episode features additional time with Skiz, as he details his early influences, explains how he became a writer for The Source, and shares some arcane knowledge! After that, it’s an exclusive hour-long Sensational mix by Supreme Low who dubs out a selection of some of the greatest, most fucked-up works (including some rare and unreleased tracks) by the self-proclaimed “freak styler”. Get this and all the past bonus episodes (including Anti-Pop Consortium, New Kingdom, Cambatta, Brzowski, and Tokyo Cigar) for just $3 via patreon.com/weirdrap. Guest correspondent Beverly Fre$h returns to break down Self Jupiter’s verbal and lyrical approach, from his work on Freestyle Fellowship’s Innercity Griots album through his latest releases with Kenny Segal, discussing the subconscious, finding hidden rhythms, leaving room for interpretation, and artworks as living entities. Jupiter also takes us back to the very first night of the infamous Good Life open mic, followed by the formation of Freestyle Fellowship, up through the subsequent years of Project Blowed, sharing how he regarded the growing underground hip hop scene of the late 90s which he and his peers had helped to birth. We recommend some new releases by Tracy Jones and Bilal Salaam, and an older one that deserves more attention: FLANCH. And we recommend a podcast, Rhythms Per Minute (hosted by Bloodmoney Perez), particularly an episode illuminating the brilliance of Bigg Jus. Weekly Weird Rap Discussion Gang at youtube.com/weirdrap.

5. Sunspot Jonz (Mystik Journeymen/Living Legends), Aaron Cartier
In this edition we speak to Sunspot Jonz (Mystik Journeymen/Living Legends) and Aaron Cartier, plus a salute to MF DOOM, a middle finger to year-end lists, new music recommendations, and more. Regardless of familiarity with Sunspot Jonz, any rap fan should be fascinated and inspired by his triumphant tale of overcoming the odds by pure grit. Underground hip hop culture as we know it was shaped to a large degree by this unsung hero, so we insist, no we demand, that everyone familiarize themselves. Sunspot (pka BFAP) walks us through the mid-thru-late 90s rise of Mystik Journeymen and Living Legends as they established themselves first in the Bay Area and then worldwide. We discuss how they built an indie rap music market from scratch and popularized the terms "underground hip hop" and "backpacker". We detail their forging of an international DIY hip hop tour circuit and their approach to self-marketing and distribution before the internet. Being some of the first bedroom hip hop producers and even creating the first consumer "beat tape", we look at their then-unique lo-fi and low-budget approach to recording and manufacturing. Sunspot also speaks about his early relationships with Del, Hieroglyphics, and Good Life/Project Blowed. Finally, he explains the importance of taking risks and believing in oneself. In a complete 180, we talk to newschool genre-hopping MC/producer Aaron Cartier, getting into the workings behind his noise-trap album Aaron Cartier Best Dog (co-produced by Dylan Brady of 100 Gecs fame) and more. We also pay tribute to the life and legacy of genius innovator MF DOOM, detail the harm and hubris of year-end lists, recommend the Media Roots Radio podcast (Soundcloud / Apple / Stitcher), and shout out some recent music releases (Spirejump: Granville 31, RAP Ferreira: Bob’s Son, and Moor Mother & billy woods: BRASS). Monthly bonus episodes (thus far including Anti-Pop Consortium, New Kingdom, Cambatta, and Brzowski) available $3/month via patreon.com/weirdrap.

In the late 90s Antipop Consortium took the experimental NYC hip hop scene by the neck.

While remaining true to their name, out of the limelight, APC grew a massive underground fanbase and remains celebrated worldwide to this day. Our in-depth conversations cover the group’s formation, creative approach, disbanding, solo iterations, and an announcement that will have fans elated.

1. Rob Sonic (Sonic Sum/Hail Mary Mallon)
For Weird Rap's first episode we're honored to speak with Rob Sonic, known for his solo works as well as collaborative projects Hail Mary Mallon (with Aesop Rock) and Sonic Sum. We discuss his early days, learning his first rap name, and he even raps some of his adolescent lyrics for us. We get deep into Rob's cryptic writing formulas, breaking down some of the lyrics for "Honeymoon Suite" from the Defriender album. He shares his feelings on contemporary early 2000s artists such as Saul Williams, the Ozone Music camp, and Anticon. He explains why Kool G Rap is considered one of rap's all-time greats, and talks about current artists that he admires. We also get into his working relationship with Aesop Rock and a possibly forthcoming Hail Mary Mallon album. And Rob gets candid about the struggles of being a unique independent artist, including thoughts of quitting the music business altogether. Curly Castro (of ShrapKnel, Wrecking Crew, BLUu Edwards and the Call Out Culture podcast) joins us to pay tribute to a classic and overlooked album: Skipp Coon's Miles Garvey. We also share some exclusive news about Skipp's forthcoming album, August: Radio Free Jafrica. Deep-thinking poet and MC Lil Ghostwriter explores the concept of schizophrenia as it applies to rap lyrics and the human psyche in general. He discusses society's schizophobia. And he relates all of this to the lyrics of the great R.A.P. Ferreira (AKA Milo, Scallops Hotel, etc. of Ruby Yacht). Finally, we do an overview of our favorite music releases throughout the year thus far: Zeroh's Blaqlyte, Cambatta's LSD: Lunar Solar Duality, The Koreatown Oddity's Little Dominiques Nosebleed, Armand Hammer's Shrines, Run The Jewels' RTJ4, Serengeti's Ajai, Dos Monos' Dos Siki, and others.
