The Most Interesting Man? You Decide...

Whether the man is the most interesting ever, there's no doubt that Royce is one hell of a beast on the mic when he gets to doing what he does...

Check it out... You may hear something from this tape on the June 10th show...
(if I can get my mitts on a version without Whoo Kid on it lol)

Sha Stimula, Murda Mook, & Nemisis Round Table Cypher

Don't know why I haven't posted this before... Give Ice a #latepass... This is one of my favorite cyphers ever... Sha & Mook just both dropped mixtapes recently... Both are problems... If anyone knows where to get more of Nem's music, leave some info in the comment box...
Watch towards the end... Trust me...


R.I.P. Big L

RIP to one of the greatest to ever do it... I don't know whose in your "Top Ten" but I know Big L is in mine...

Dude would've been 36 today, so celebrate by living life the way he would've... Drinking, smoking, living the fast life etc...

Oh, and you know he wouldn't last a day without listening to some dope music, so honor the man by bumping this 53 track tribute done E.R.O.C. back in '03...

Entire month of may mega update

The phatroot team has been hard at work searching for worthy news sources of the latest in politics and hip hop related news. However, nothing has happened in the month of may (it's not at all that we have been lazy in updating this, no not at all)

To tide you over though, i found some older clips to hold you down. obama makes a great point about hip hop, followed by damu the fudgemunk playing beats out the mpc. yessir...

Obama on hip hop - interviewer asks great questions too... well done

Damu the fudgemunk. beats are ridiculous. PEEP !
