Day 1 Radio | Jarren Benton [12/4]

Jarren Benton is crazy as hell. Yeah, I said it. On Thursday, we had the Funk Volume rapper come up to the ABL studio and he had us all in stitches for the bulk of the evening. And he’s a dope emcee, so of course we touched on his upcoming projects including one special EP dedicated to his former manager who passed just over a year ago. Continue reading

Mad Fresh 5 | Runway Richy

Anyone who knows me, knows that I love the eastside of Atlanta. I. Love. Decatur. With that said, it was only right that I meet up with one of the up and comers from the Dec behind a small barbershop off Candler Road for a Mad Fresh 5. Me & Runway Richy talked about everything from career hiccups to signing on with DJ Holiday‘s Commission. Listen close.

Day 1 Radio | Joi & Darryl Cobbin [Thanksgiving 2014]

A couple weeks back while you guys were getting the turkey ready, Day 1 sat with advertising mastermind Darryl Cobbin and one Tennessee Slim Kitty. Continue reading

Mad Fresh 5 | Translee on ‘Culture Junky’ Mixtape

For those of you familiar with Day 1 Radio and what Maurice, B and myself do over there, you already may have heard the Mad Fresh 5 segment I knock out from time to time. If so, then kudos to you! If not, I’ll be wrapping them all and placing them here for your listening pleasure.  Continue reading

Day 1 Radio | Raheem Devaughn [11/21]

2014-11-23 17.48.08

The guys like seeing me soften up over at Day 1. All good. Last week’s session with R&B/soul, hip-hop tinged Raheem Devaughn marked a moment they won’t be seeing again anytime soon.   Continue reading

A couple weeks back Day 1 had an episode chockful of info and dope stories. Continue reading

Day 1 Radio | DJ Jelly [11/7]

Years ago I met DJ Jelly in passing. Out of a crew of Northerners in the A, I was the only one who recognized him from his avid work in Atlanta’s hip-hop scene, even after moving here in the tail end of the ’90s — the very last year actually.

The thing is: his work reputation precedes him, a great quality.  I think all three of us learned something new this week from Jellybean. Continue reading

Day 1 Radio | Master P [10/21]

Perhaps the biggest part of this interview is the fact that Mr. Percy Miller of the ’90s powerhouse No Limit, referred to me as ‘sista’ at least twice. Twice. LOL. Continue reading

Day 1 Radio | Big Gipp [9/26]

Who else you gon’ run with? The truth is us. Yup. Pretty much.

Back in September, Day 1 Radio got with one of the A-Town’s most outspoken Dungeon Family artists — Big Gipp of Goodie Mob. The ‘Shine Like Gold’ creator was so forthcoming with so many knowledgable points.

From the Goodie Mob beginnings to his upcoming studio LP, Zagga, this was really a great conversation above all. Take a listen.

Day 1 Radio | Rittz [9/19]

Shouts to the homie Rittz who swung by the Day 1 Radio studio recently. Me, Reese and B couldn’t stop laughing as he told many a tale about roaches on tour buses and getting drunk before the BET Hip Hop Awards. Continue reading
