On this week’s SP Radio local rappers Jay Moses and Young Blu stop by the studio to talk about the Champaign-Urbana rap scene, recording and producing rap locally, and more. The two rappers join forces on the recent Green Tea X Green Trees album, and we talk with them about the writing and recording process, how the material translates to the stage for live shows, and more. Moses also fills us in on his work with The Struggle, while Young Blu gives us some details on his recent talks with Epic Records.
The end of the podcast also includes two tracks from the collaboration album, “Weight (Hold Up)” and “You Obviously Lack Originality.” Big thanks to both for letting us include them here and you can check out the full album at the link above.
