The Ave Podcast – The Greatest Two Weeks In Hip Hop. Ever.

The Ave Podcast with Cal Cee. Episode 57: The Greatest Two Weeks In Hip Hop. Ever.

Today on The Ave Podcast, we take you back down memory lane to discuss the greatest two week stretch in Hip Hop history. On Nov. 9, 1993, two iconic albums were released on the same day, A Tribe Called Quest’s 3rd album Midnight Marauders, and Wu-Tang Clan’s debut album Enter The Wu-Tang: 36 Chambers. Both albums went on help usher in a new era, and became two of the most influential bodies of work in the genre. If that wasn’t enough, exactly two weeks later Snoop Doggy Dogg released his debut album Doggystyle, which followed the same path as the two albums before it, and launched Snoop into superstardom.

I invite DJ Chris Nice (Grooves & Rhythms Mixshow, Fridays from 2 – 4PM on MyLime Radio) & Dennis Barham (Actor) as we discuss these three albums, the peak of Hip Hop’s Golden Era, how the ’93-’94 stretch may have represented the best 2-year period that ever existed in the genre, plus a ton more. Please enjoy.

#TheStoop: “It Was All A (Club) Dream”…

Today on #TheStoop: A Mini-Podcast Series, in the spirit of Flashback Friday, we take you back to the 2003-2004 era when Chocolate City* had one of the biggest clubs for the culture. I invite Andrew Mambo (ESPN’s 30 For 30 Podcast), and Headley (past contributor to South Shore Ave), as we take you back down memory lane and discuss “Club Dream”, one of the greatest entertainment night clubs in the DC-Maryland-Virginia (aka The “DMV”), as well as being the biggest club on the East Coast. We break down the atmosphere, the vibe, and share stories from our experience(s) of the legendary nightclub. If you missed out… that’s okay. We accept your apology.

* “Chocolate City” is the nickname for Washington, D.C., and if you’re only now learning this, I’m glad that I was able to help you understand what that term meant. And also…… really?
