CHALLENGE!

Okay, party people….the time has come! The first ever (and possibly only) TBT Posse Lip Sync Challenge is underway! Many entries were received, but Bill and Jamie sifted through them all and came up with 8 for your viewing pleasure. Watch all of the videos, because these guys and girls put in the time and effort to bring them to you. Once you are done, cast your vote below. The voting starts now and runs through August 28th at noon Eastern.

The winner of this challenge will receive a Limited Edition Yo! MTV Raps 30th Anniversary Experience poster. There was no merchandise available at this concert of a lifetime, this was acquired from “behind the scenes” at the Barclays Center…..so it’s quite rare. BUT….The Mr. Throwback Thursday podcast goes above and beyond for the Posse, and we have one for our winner! So let the fun begin!

 

 

Entry 1  She’s Got it Made

Entry 2  Frednilla Ice

Entry 3  Sally….That Girl

Entry 4  MCA-hieu

Entry 5  Jeff A No Joke

Entry 6  What a Brother Know

Episode 233 – Keeping it FRESH

Happy Throwback Thursday, everyone! While half of the show hosts are away, we bring you a slice of fried gold from the past. Normally, only our Patrons get super secret squirrel shit…but this week, you ALL get something special. A few months back (we’re talking football season “few”), I had the honor of spending some time with the one and only DJ Bee at the Fresh Radio studios. When two similar hip hop minds get together with no script, no time constraints, and no idea what is going to happen…. you get this! Special appearance by Disco Stu! Check it out, you won’t be disappointed.

Happy Throwback Thursday, everyone! The shows never have a title before we start. Often, they don’t have a title until I’ve finished editing. This week, a simple (easily edited) miscue on Bill’s part becomes a show title. Why would he even be talking about Barenaked Ladies? Let’s listen.

Episode 230 – Part Deux

Happy Throwback Thursday, everyone! This week, one of your hosts is away from Headquarters, so you don’t get the standard show menu. A few weeks ago we gave you Jamie’s rundown of the Yo! MTV Raps 30th Anniversary Experience. THIS week, Jamie hooks up with Fox from Def Rugs, and they both give you their review of the evening. You find that when you have left the moment, you tend to forget some things that happen. When you have someone else who was there with you, you tend to remember more….so that’s what we did for you. We brought Fox in to help fill in some of the gaps that we left you with. Come and join us, welcome Fox to the show, and check out Def Rugs! Now let’s get started with Yo! Part Deux!
