On this episode of TCOHHL (The Chronicles of a Hip Hop Legend) Radio, D.D. Turner welcomes his older, Corey Turner, Esq. to the TCOHHL experience and together they kick it with celebrated DJ, Music Producer, Documentarian, Hip Hop purveyor/protector, and Host of the Fran Lover Show, Fran Lover. With a relationship that goes back more than 30 years [with origins firmly planted in the Linden Housing development located in the East New York section of Brooklyn – NYC], the discussion unfolds in a manner that proves familiar, insightful, nostalgic, and entertaining.

And regarding the playlist? Let’s just say we appropriately explore Hip Hop’s Rap music timeline through an unfiltered and undisturbed East New York lens.

Youthful expression in Hip Hop has always been fundamental to the culture. After all, the youth collectively are and have always been responsible for the long-term sustainability and progressiveness of the culture. In a recent conversation, I went on record saying that Hip Hop and I are twins; there are very few recollected moments in my life in which Hip Hop hasn’t been a major fixture.

In this regard, DJ Kool Flash and I are similar. Where we differ however is DJ Kool Flash’s ability to profess her support of the culture [at her present age] in a way that is extremely passionate, expressive, and masterful.

This week on TCOHHL (The Chronicles of a Hip Hop Legend) Radio (4/20/2016), D.D. Turner and C. Stats kick it with the talented future legend, DJ Kool Flash. During our time spent with DJ Kool Flash, we discuss her Hip Hop roots, her favorite Hip Hop artists, and equally as exciting and riveting, her introduction and ongoing skill development as a Turntablist. And regarding the playlist? Let’s just say it bridges the musical gap and effectively celebrates those Hip Hop artists that started out young…Like DJ Kool Flash.

Kendrick ‘K-Dot’ Lamar!

With 11 nominations, it was inevitable. But it’s no secret; Kendrick’s journey to this prestigious moment has been long, steady, and consistent. For those of us that have been fortunate enough to follow his exciting career, collectively we have bore witness to the maturation of a man; a man that overtly proclaims his love for the culture of Hip Hop while remaining aligned with its core principle of bringing awareness to social inequality and disparity. And never has he missed a step while engaging in the discipline of Emceeing.

So, to our revered and celebrated, Kendrick Lamar, The Chronicles of a Hip Hop Legend (#TCOHHL) congratulates you on your amazing accomplishment. Not only is it well deserved, it serves as a worthy testament of Hip Hop’s power and its ability to transcend cultural and socio-economic differences.

Kendrick ‘K-Dot’ Lamar, standing resolute in the shadow of the legendary, N.W.A., you are an appropriate victor.  Compton, California…Stand the f$@k up!! This is your moment.
