G.Huff called in to the show last week to talk about his new single “Rakim Meets the DOC” and kick it with Chase March live on the radio. We’ve been trying to make this happen for a while and glad it finally worked out.

Striving to make power moves, Word is Bond Rap Radio has been rocking the airwaves for close to seven years now. And we are not about to slow down. Today’s show features 90 minutes of great hip-hop music and then Chase March closes off the show by looking at songs that strategically use rests (moments of silence) in their songs.

Cayoz hails from Oceanside, California and is not be confused with the Canadian emcee K-os, although both rappers pronounce their name “Chaos.”
If you are a regular listener of this show, you will have heard this man before. He makes great songs and even has a few Canadian connections. It was nice to finally kick it with him and talk about music and life.

Alex Kuchma, called in to Word is Bond Rap Radio to talk about all things hip-hop. He even brought in some music that you might not have heard before.
He is writing a book of the rich history we have in this country when it comes to hip-hop music and culture.
Kuchma is tackling this subject with passion and has already interviewed dozens of rap musicians who were active in the 1990s. He is going to the source to collect hard to find albums, singles, mixtapes, and stories.
He would love to hear from you, if you had anything to do in the Canadian hip-hop scene and can be contacted via email or Twitter.
Canada has a rich hip-hop history and it is great to see it being celebrated in such a big way.

We start out the show with 30 minutes of great Lee Reed music, and then talk to the man himself in this special edition of Word is Bond Rap Radio.
Lee Reed is an amazing artist and veteran of the Hamilton music scene. Right now, he is fighting a battle against an unfair system that threatens to displace people from the homes. You can support the rent strike efforts by copping his new EP from Bandcamp.

We pay tribute to the Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin, who passed away last week in this edition of Word is Bond Rap Radio.
We start out with a story about her iconic version of “Respect” and the history behind the tune. Then work our way through 30 minutes of tunes that sampled her music, and close out the show with some new and classic hip-hop.

Branded Moore was the special guest on Word is Bond Rap Radio last week. He took over the program to promote the release of “Low Fidelity Broadcast,” a project he did with DJ Over.
We played some tunes from the new project, premiered a few tracks from the vaults that have never been heard before, talked to a live caller, and had an in-depth discussion about all things hip-hop.
Branded Moore has an incredible stage presence and energy and puts on one of the best live shows you will ever see. Do yourself a favour and catch him in concert if you get the chance.
“Low Fidelity Broadcast” is out now wherever you get your music.

This is Episode 78 of Know Your History and features music by Grandmaster Flash and the Furious 5, an interview with the first hip-hop promoter (it isn’t who you think) and a song by Akala that gets us thinking about how far back this genre of music actually goes.
