"Can't Knock the Shuffle podcast (Stony Island Audio Network) "


          

As we are now steeped in the hip hop podcast renaissance...

Happy to announce I've launched a new show on Open Mike Eagle's Stony Island Audio network (home of his excellent Prince Paul interview series 'What Had Happened Was'.) The show is called 'Can't Knock the Shuffle' and the first episode premiered this week:

https://t.co/mZTVXWcWk5?amp=1

The concept is simple: Every song has a story, but some get lost in the shuffle. Each week, I sit with some of hip hop's most prolific artists, throw their catalog into a randomized playlist, and what ensues is a discussion about the songs that don't always get talked about.

This week's episode features the homie MURS, and we delve into some stories he's never told before behind seven randomly selected songs from his 600+ song catalog.

Anyway, thought I'd share here. Might post weekly updates with each new guest. Cheers!

a renaissance, indeed. I'm not familiar with MURS' work, but I'll definitely be checking for future guests.

also: 'Stony Island Audio Network,' huh? is Open Mike Eagle from Chicago?

Word. Thanks for checking it out. I think the format is definitely great for artists that the listener is aware of but I do also believe it’s still interesting if you don’t know their music either. Could be a cool gateway to get a taste of their catalog/story.

Yes he is!

2nd episode is up featuring the incomparable J-Live. He’s honestly one of my favorite *writers* and thus it was a joy to dive into his catalog on the show. Good mix of older songs that most fans are no doubt familiar with as well as some more recent material that may not be on everybody’s radar.

I'm still producing new episodes and trying to lock in a solid back half that I feel good about. So that said, I think it will fall somewhere between 8-12 depending on what I can make happen.

Not only a guest, but the man behind the podcast network itself. Mike and I not only explored the stories behind seven randomly selected songs from his catalog, but also had some good discussion about the plight of the indie artist trying to navigate a field that is becoming increasingly untenable.

Also some interesting insight on his Comedy Central show and how collaborations with MF DOOM, Lizzo, Method Man, etc. somehow didn't add up to the result that one might expect by looking at all those names on paper.

Appreciate the feedback everyone's been leaving here. In my most natural state in life I create things specifically aimed at the Lesson lol, so I'm glad that you guys dig.

Definitely the most musically technical episode yet. We got to talk about a lot of cool components of Rj's story and production process. He also was pretty candid about some subjects that many artists might be more inclined to shy away from.

I won't say more, but you should definitely check it out. Appreciate everybody's support and feedback on this season, definitely make sure to rate and subscribe if you are enjoying the show!

16. "Episode 05: Visitor Speaks on Homeboy Sandman"
In response to Reply # 0


          

Www.cantknocktheshuffle.com

After the past decade and change, rapper Homeboy Sandman has built a career that's been defined by marching to the beat of his own drum. He's released albums on labels like Stones Throw and Mellow Music Group, and has collaborated with artists for full projects such as Aesop Rock, Edan, and most recently Quelle Chris, who produced the entirety of Sandman's latest album 'Don't Feed the Monster.' The Ivy League-educated emcee also had a stint as a blogger, publishing a series of essays and think-pieces for Huffington Post and Gawker, which raised eyebrows and caught the attention of the blogosphere due to his strong opinions and provocative perspective. This episode is an interview with someone who identifies themselves as Visitor or Angel, but there is no one else in the world better equipped to dive into the stories behind Homeboy Sandman's songs.

Back at it again with Philly’s very own Bahamadia. As always, we talked the stories behind 7 randomly selected songs from her catalog. It’s a great conversation with one of hip hop’s most unique and esteemed great practitioners (and also one who doesn’t do many interviews!!!), and it’s available wherever you get podcasts.

Do you mean just this season because of timing, or are you saying you don't think that you'll ever be able to book him ?

And if it's the latter, why ?

I only ask out of curiosity. I'm just sort of interested in how podcasters book/land their desired guests, especially fledging/newer pods like yours.

I just have a finite ending to this first season and it doesn't look likely this time around. He's also does very few interviews/podcasts these days, so he would be a very "good get."

Yeah, it would be extremely interesting to hear him talk about his songs especially with the level of imagery in them. I was just thinking about it because his new album is out this Friday and he's one of my favorite emcees. In any case, Aes or not, I'll be listening to all of the new episodes!

Latest episode is up with the homie Blueprint! www.cantknocktheshuffle.com

Lots of great insight to seven randomly selected songs from his catalog (including work with Soul Position as well as his show-stealing verse on Aesop Rock's "Alchemy"), as well as a great reflective analysis of the emergence of the Midwest indie scene that he and his peers helped build in the late 90s/early 00s.

Enjoy! Thanks for all the great feedback on the show! Rate/subscribe/review/etc.

All the stuff about the corny critic backlash very much rings true. I've heard him talk about it before, but it bears repeating. One of the big reasons that the hip-hop scene in the mid '00s really annoyed me.

Yeah, it's wild (as we speak about) how the media almost immediately started rejecting what they'd built up in the years previous. I honestly could have talked just about that topic for another hour, but had to keep it moving...it just has always fascinated me.

They get pretty in-depth. Including mention of a Pitchfork review of the Def Jux 3 compilation that is actually pretty offensive.

Back at it with another episode of 'Can't Knock the Shuffle,' this time with the super talented Nikki Jean, who's had a pretty one of the more unique careers that I've ever heard of (from Roots affiliation to Lupe Fiasco, the Glow in the Dark tour, co-writing songs with Carole King and Lamont Dozier to name a few to now being on Rhymesayers). She's a singer-songwriter through the lens/aesthetic of hip hop.

This is a great conversation. Available wherever you get podcasts!

Wrapping up the first season with a discussion with Slug from Atmosphere. More than 20 years in the game and plenty of different phases/chapters in his career. Young upstart turned elder statesman. Great conversation in this episode.

Thanks for the support of the show. I look forward to bringing it back for a second season next year!

Back at it again with another season of Can't Knock the Shuffle on Stony Island Audio.

First up...Masta Ace.

Some great stories in this one from throughout his 30+ year career, including the origin of hip hop supergroup Crooklyn Dodgers, collaborations with producers like MF DOOM and Marco Polo, and so much more.

Get the whole thing wherever you get your podcasts, or visit www.cantknocktheshuffle.com


Full episode (YouTube):
https://youtu.be/awqdttLKu38

A couple clips here too...

Waiting (and almost giving up on) the MF DOOM verse that would end up on his MA_DOOM record:

For the second episode, I linked up with Fat Tony. He's been cranking out some uniquely original music for the better part of the last decade. We talked about his relationship and collaboration with Bun B, his songwriting approach, storytelling, songs about weed (and why they are kind of played out), and a lot more. Very thoughtful discussion.

I don't think I really need to provide much of an introduction to the man whose career was essentially propelled by this here corner of the Internet. Nic and I chopped it up over a variety of topics in this conversation, including the formative impact of D'Angelo's live shows circa the 'Voodoo' tour, working with a very young Wiz Khalifa on Nic's 2006 'Here' album, his working relationship with Phonte, the Hot at Nights, and much more.

Available wherever you get podcasts, at the link above, or:

Outside of talking about the songs, there's a lot here really worth checking out if you're an FE and Little Brother fan.

Thanks to everybody for the feedback on these here boards, which I still consider a formative training ground for basically everything cool that I've ever done in my life. Make sure you subscribe and leave a review on Apple Podcasts, it really helps!

This week I'm joined by Quelle Chris for a very casual and entertaining stroll through his catalog, including his instrumental work, collaborations with Hannibal Buress and his wife Jean Grae, and much more. We had some fun moments in this one. Available everywhere!

Teaser - Quelle talks about recording a drunk Hannibal Buress on his excellent collaborative album with Jean Grae, 'Everything's Fine':

This is the first of two parts (we talked for a long time!). Esthero has had a remarkable career and she was candid about her songwriting process and inspiration as well as the politics of the music industry. Some great stories about some of her collaborators as well, including a pretty interesting story about working with Andre 3000 in this first installment.

Making her third album 'Everything is Expensive':
