WBRN Radio – Episode 15: THE VAULT ‘Tae Bern’



THE VAULT is a series of classic episodes from my previous podcast “The 3rd Degree” that I’ve decide to bring back. The first of these is ‘Tae Bern,’ a workout mix I made featuring old school Hip Hop. This is the perfect upbeat funky dope mix you gym rats and IG fitness fanatics need to push you through the hour on the elliptical or the last rep on the squat rack. I started listening to this regularly recently because I’ve been in the gym heavy (there will be a different post for that), so sweat it out with me! Note: After the 41 minute mark, there are three cool down songs. The first two, are from famous 80s movies. Do you know which ones?

Sir Mix-a-Lot – ‘Baby Got Back’

Ice-T – ‘New Jack Hustler’
Leaders of the New School – ‘Case of the P.T.A.’
Public Enemy – ‘Fight The Power’
N.W.A. – ‘Straight Outta Compton’
LL Cool J – ‘Mama Said Knock You Out’
Lords of the Underground – ‘Chief Rocka’

WBRN Radio – Episode 12: The Fat Tape Part 1



Back in the 90s through the early 2000s, Hip Hop enthusiasts used to scramble to the news stand / grocery store to grab their favorite Hip Hop magazine. From the dope articles to the album ratings, another jewel was the “Fat Tape” section, where the magazine picked a few of their favorite joints for you to put on a cassette and make your very own mixtape. I wanted to bring that feeling back with this episode. Vibe out to this mix!
