DJ Cummerbund is a mash-up artist supreme. He creates magic when he takes two things that shouldn’t go together to create a musical masterpiece. My favourite is when he took a hard rock song and turned it into a disco track. Can you imagine Ozzy Osbourne in Earth, Wind, and Fire? If not, press play and wait for it. It’s incredible!
TempoMental is one of my favourite local artists. He brings a soul to the microphone that not many rappers can pull off. He premieres a few songs from his new EP, Mellow Tones, and kicks it with me in the second half of the show.
They are both special guests in this edition of the show. Don’t delay. Press play. And enjoy!

Nine has been holding it down for 23 years. His distinct voice has captured our attention since we first heard him on “Whutcha Want” back in 1995.
We start out this edition of Word is Bond Rap Radio with a half hour mixset of his music. and then get in-depth with an exclusive interview.
Recorded live on 94.9 Radio Western, you can hear it anytime you want via the power of podcasting.

One of the lyrics in a song we played this week says, “Every show needs a DJ” and we couldn’t agree more. That’s why you get two hours of music mixed live by our very own Chase March on the radio every week here on Word is Bond Rap Radio. So please hire a DJ if you are putting on a rap concert. You need one!
Show some love to the DJ. When you are at a show and snapping pictures, make sure to get one of the DJ. If you are an MC, thank the DJ, by name, during your set. Hip-hop started with a DJ. Let’s remember and honour that.
Enjoy the show!

For episode 317 of Word is Bond Rap Radio, we get loud with two hours of great hip-hop tunes mixed live on the radio.
DJ Chase March was so into the mix that he forgot to run the bottom of the hour promos and mixed for one hour straight. It’s just nice to have one continuous wall of sound. You can certainly get lost in music. We hope you enjoy this show as much as we enjoy bringing it to you every week.
I Thought I Told You (Episode 317) features these songs . . .

Sareem Poems is a hip-hop veteran with over 20 years in the game. From his group, LA Symphony, to his work with various producers, to his solo tracks, he has been putting in work for a long time now.
It was a honour being able to chat with him this week live on the radio. We played world premiere joints from his forthcoming album “Mind Over Matter,” which is produced entirely by Ess Be. And we have a great discussion about hip-hop, youth outreach work, swearing in songs, the n-word, and much more.
Press play, download it and take it with you, and bump this loud. Enjoy!

Traffimatics loves coming on Word is Bond Rap Radio. It gives him the opportunity to showcase his freestyle skills and kick some rhymes live over the airwaves. This past Tuesday, he was even taken requests to perform some of his music live, and to include specific words into his freestyles. It was a lot of fun.
And of course, DJ Chase March spun two hours of great hip-hop music as well.
