The Ave Podcast – 25th Anniversary of Above The Rim

The Ave Podcast with Cal Cee. Episode 69: 25th Anniversary of Above The Rim

In the spirit of #FlashbackFriday, we take it all the way back to March 1994* where we celebrate and pay tribute, to one of the more impactful movies in pop-black culture. Twenty five years ago, New Line Cinemas & director Jeff Pollack released Above The Rim, a movie about a New York City HS Basketball star and his relationship with two people: one is a drug dealer, and the other one is a former basketball star fighting his own personal demons. Both of these men impact his life at a critical period in his life on his pursuit of playing NCAA basketball.

So today on The Ave Podcast, I invite Dennis Barham (Actor) & 1st time guest Peter-John Kerr (Director/Producer; Founder of Swooplay), as we have a conversation 25 years later about Above The Rim. We discuss the influence this movie had on basketball players from our generation, Tupac’s impact and his untapped potential as an actor, question the existence of Tommy Shepherd, review the legendary soundtrack, and much more.

* Technically, this movie debuted on March 23, 1994. However, the decision was made to air this podcast a week later so that it didn’t get lost during the 1st weekend of March Madness. You’re welcome basketball fans….

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: The 20th Anniversary of Vol. 2… Hard Knock Life

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 (September 29, 1998), Jay-Z released his 3rd studio album, “Vol. 2… Hard Knock Life”. The album & the single (of the same name) exploded across the Hip Hop industry, and sent Jay-Z into pole position as the best rapper of the game. It sold over 5 million albums, & became the foundational piece that set up the Rocafella Records era into the new millenium.

I invite Shawn Adonis (Past contributor to South Shore Ave) as we discuss the Top 5 songs from the album, where this album ranks among the other albums in the Jay-Z catalogue, the impact the album had on Rocafella records, and much more.
