Two tribute shows in two weeks. Damn, this is crazy!

Rest in Peace, Black Rob. Your music spoke to a lot of people and you will truly be missed.

I thought he was making a bit of a comeback. He appeared recently on projects by Diamond D and Cormega. You will hear those tonight, along with a few of his classics.

After the tribute set, I had the chance to interview author and hip-hop historian, Jeff Chang. He just released an updated version of his classic “Can’t Stop Won’t Stop” that every hip-hop fan should read.

Plus, I keep it moving with some great hip-hop. And we even hear DMX and Black Rob on a track together tonight. They will both be missed.
