Best Hip-Hop Albums of 2012 by DJ E-Yo

Theophilus London
To kick off AiMT 2012, I got some help from the homey DJ E-Yo, who hosts KXUA's The Concrete Schoolyard. That's a hip-hop show I created around 10 years ago. I held it down for four years (tops), but E-Yo has kept the name going for an additional six. By all accounts, the show is his now, and he owns it like I never owned it. Check it out on the KXUA stream every Thursday night from 8 until 10 pm (Central), and/or watch the KXUA blog for podcasts.

People have been grilling me about year-end features, and I appreciate the interest. I wanted to start rolling them out before the New Year, but travel, snow storms, power outages, and 60-hour work weeks have stalled me quite a bit. Luckily I have all the features done and will be posting one per day over the next week or so. Thanks for your patience!

Full list after the jump.

Baby Armie, Mandelhog and DJ E-Yo at JR's tomorrow



Just a quick heads up that I'll be DJing alongside Mandelhog (Messy Sparkles' DJ alias) and The Concrete Schoolyard's DJ E-Yo. It will be a highly eclectic night. No telling what we'll end up playing.

Here are a couple of goodies in the meantime, including an unfinished remix for Architecture in Helsinki I got commissioned to do back in '07.

Messy Sparkles - "Thank God"
