#TheStoop: Black On Both Sides #20Years

Today on #TheStoop: A Mini-Podcast series, we take you back to the musical Golden Era of 90’s music, and celebrate one of the Greatest albums of the decade. Twenty years ago tomorrow (October 12, 1999), Mos Def (now Yaasin Bey) launched his debut album, Black On Both Sides. Fresh off the success of the Black Starr collaboration album with Talib Kweli one year earlier, Mos dropped a critically acclaimed and underrated masterpiece, where he discussed his socially conscious views for the masses. This album achieved Gold status in the process. I invite actor Dennis Barham and producer Justis from Beats By Bruises as we break down our Top 4 songs off the album, his career, & a lot more.

#TheStoop: 30 Years of Doin’ The Right Thing…

Today on the Season 3 premiere of #TheStoop: A Mini-Podcast Summer Series, in the spirit of Flashback Friday, we take you back to one of the greatest movies ever made. Thirty years ago last week, Spike Lee launched his 3rd cinematic movie “Do The Right Thing”, a movie that perfectly captured the racial tensions of one hot summer day in Brooklyn (Bed-Stuy to be exact). I invite DJ/Producer DJ Keo, ESPN’s 30 for 30 Podcast producer Andrew Mambo, and SSA Family Member Kevin W as we discuss how this movie affected our generation, how it relates to the culture the last 5 years, how this movie & Public Enemy’s “Fight The Power” elevated each other, if Radio Raheem is actually underrated, plus a lot more.

The Ave Podcast – The 30th Anniversary of Coming To America

The Ave Podcast with Cal Cee. Episode 51: The 30th Anniversary of Coming To America

In the spirit of #FlashbackFriday, we take it all the way back to 1988 where we celebrate and pay tribute, to one of the most successful movies in pop-black culture. Thirty years ago today, Paramount Pictures, Eddie Murphy, and Director John Landis released Coming To America, a movie about an African prince from the country of Zamunda (fictional, obviously) who travels to Queens, NY in an attempt to find his Queen. We discuss Eddie Murphy’s genius, his career arc that dominated the 80s, the star-studded cast that was in the movie, the pop-black cultural similarities between ’88 & ’18, our favorite scenes and moments, plus a whole lot more. Oh! What a feeling…..
