This is an Archive for the “Know Da Ledge” segments on “Drop Beats Not Bombs” streaming live every Monday Night between 8 – 10 with a replay every Saturday Night between 8 – 10 on WPVM .

The show’s purpose is to bring to light the underground and conscious Hip-Hop, not only in America but other countries as well like Japan, New Zealand, France, Germany, South Africa, Australia, Canada, Denmark, Sri Lanka, Trinidad & Tobago, UK, Mexico, Sudan, Jamaica, Samoa, Niue, The Netherlands and beyond in their effort to give listeners a broader view of how the genre has sprouted roots worldwide.

It’s hosted by my friends Molly and Lucia and every week, I call in for some “help out like shout” with hosting the “Know Da Ledge” segment. During the segment we play a snippet of classic song from an artist and then identify the Hip-Hop song (group) that sampled from it.

If you ever miss a show and want to listen to the original that was played and the song that was sampled for it that week, just drop by here and check any of them out. Oh and make sure to check out DBNB‘s Facebook group page here too!
