We've taken the instrumentals from Real Live's 1996 underground classic 'The Turnaround' and got our blend on with some acapellas to give the album a new lease of life. As dope as the original album is, Larry O wasn't quite at the top level of New York rappers back then, but now you can hear the likes of Biggie, Kool G Rap, AZ, Raekwon, OC, Camp Lo and Lord Finesse do their thing over K-Def's beats.
On this episode of the Sum'n To Say podcast we are joined by the incomparable DJ Wally Sparks to talk about his roots here in Atlanta and his epic R&B party The Groove. Wally also opines about the nature of "fickle" music fans. Is NYC still the mecca of hip-hop? Can meccas move? We dive into that topic as well. Also, Soulja Boy is a political activist (not really, but kinda?)
