Take No Prisoners Radio is a monthly podcast about Hip Hop culture and social justice. Recorded at the Home Grown Radio studios in Inglewood, CA, and hosted by Camille H and Seb, TNP Radio doesn’t hold back when it comes to tackling the music industry, Hip Hop, current events, racism, corrupt politics, wack rappers, and everything in between. If it’s hot in the news or social media, TNP Radio is probably talking about it! And in the midst of it all, TNP Radio plays the best in new Hip Hop. Past guests include Paul Porter, founder of RapRehab and former BET program director, legendary Hip Hop artist Masta Ace, and Ferguson community activist B-Gyrl.

But the show isn’t free to produce. While we have had sponsors to cover the cost of studio time, it’s difficult to find reliable sponsors who can advertise month after month. This is where you come in! If you value thought-provoking discussions about Hip Hop culture and the state of the world, we need your help.  Your donations, small or large, will help us keep the show going, whether or not we get sponsors every episode. Anything from $5 to a million (doesn’t hurt to aim high!!) will allow TNP Radio to continue giving listeners what they’ve come to expect: unapologetic social commentary, humor, and dope Hip Hop music!

All donors will be shouted out on the show (unless they choose to remain anonymous) and will contribute to keeping independent media alive and free from corporate dollars.

When was the last time you got to see EPMD, Slick Rick, Doug E. Fresh, Big Daddy Kane, Rakim, Biz Markie, Naughty By Nature, DMX, and more together on stage? Kicking off this July, the show will hopefully make its way to your city soon.

2. Chuck D Interview on the Combat Show

This is possibly one of the best interviews I’ve heard in a long time. Listen to Chuck and Keith Shocklee from the Bomb Squad share insight about Hip Hop culture, the origins of Public Enemy, the music industry, their work with other artists, and everything else you’d imagine the perfect 3 1/2 hour Chuck D interview to sound like!

 

3. Interview with Bob Power, the man behind the sound of A Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, The Roots, Erykah Badu, and more.

Legendary recording engineer Bob Power talks about how he helped create the sound that some of Hip Hop’s most iconic artists are known for. If you’re into what goes on behind the scenes, this interview is a must!

5. Jay Electronica at The Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival

The always anticipated Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival celebrated its 10th anniversary with many performers including Jay Electronica who repped the Nation of Islam to the fullest and surprised the audience by bringing Jay Z on stage to do an almost 15-minute set. I wasn’t there but here’s the video.
