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.

In this exclusive episode, B-Gyrl, Hip Hop activist and founder of HandsUpDontShoot.com reveals how the movement for social justice, from Ferguson to Baltimore, was exploited and co-opted by outside forces. During the first part of the show, she describes the tension in the streets of Ferguson the first few hours following Mike Brown’s murder. B-Gyrl then shares insight into how this grassroots movement against police abuse is being hijacked and funded by wealthy donors and special interest groups in order to shift the movement’s original goals. This is a revealing discussion that explores who the key players are and what they aim to gain from destabilizing the movement. Think mainstream media’s been telling you the truth? Think again! This show is so jam-packed with information we didn’t play any music this time around. So find a quiet place to yourself and tune in for almost 90 minutes of eye-opening information.

Welcome to the first episode of Take No Prisoners Radio hosted by Camille H & myself. In this episode, we discuss Ferguson, Police Brutality, misogyny, white supremacy and racism, and the state of Hip Hop. For the Hot Seat segment, we’re joined by an anonymous music industry executive who believes that the music industry should NOT be held accountable for the type of rap music it promotes. The conversation gets pretty heated! Also, check out music from J Cole, Pharoahe Monch, Rah Digga, ZotheJerk, and Rapsody. For info or feedback email SebastienElkouby@gmail.com. Peace.
