#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.

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).

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.
