Headland and Delowe

Atlanta journalist Dominick R. Brady has begun an amazing audio project documenting the city's hip hop history. Headland and Delowe: ATL Hip Hop from '79 til features interviews from DJ Jelly, Zapper, MC Shy D, Cee-lo, Senor Kaos, Talib Shabazz and plenty more, along with classic Atlanta tracks from the past and present. Listen to (or download) the whole 35 minutes here. While the city's hip hop history books often seem to begin and end with the Dungeon Family (for good reason), Mr. Brady has spent plenty of time researching pre-Laface Atlanta rap as well as presenting the work of some of the city's most exciting current artists. Seriously, run go listen. You'll be day-dreaming about banging out beats on the lunchroom table before you can say "That boom, that boom, ooooh I like that boom."
