On The Beat Podcast #001: Tribute to The Beatnuts
Welcome to On The Beat Podcast #001. In this episode, we pay tribute to Hip Hop’s unsung champions… The Beatnuts: Psycho Les, Juju, and former member Fashion (aka Cool Ass Fash, who later became Al Tariq after leaving the group.) The Beatnuts have provided classic material with lyrics and production since the early Nineties, but their Hip Hop lineage goes back way further than that. Formerly known as the Beat Kings, they found themselves becoming DJs because of their love of Hip Hop. While digging, The Beatnuts ran into Afrika Bambaataa (one of the founders of Hip Hop.) Bambaataa introduced The Beatnuts to the Native Tongues (De La Soul, A Tribe Called Quest, Jungle Brothers, Monie Love) and their career took off. The Beatnuts started their production credits with such artists as Stereo MCs, Common (sense), Fat Joe, Chi Ali and Monie love. Their beatmaking evolved into creating production for their own vocals. Their music, their contribution, their part in Hip Hop history is very import, so On The Beat would like to show how much we love them with our podcast tribute. This episode is mixed by DJ Excel of the Skratch Makaniks with commentary and discussion by mighty FlipSide Esq and Tisha Tuch… Enjoy.
