Brand new on The Zro Hour

THE ZRO HOUR- New Podcast Up

Yes you read that right. THE ZRO HOUR returns after a long hiatus to bring you that food for your ears. We are winding down to our last few shows before we officially sign off. Due to outside projects, we will be stepping away from doing the podcasts. This may not be permanent and if the demand is there we will return. The site will continue to be updated and the shows will always be available for repeat listening. Its a crazy archive of some of the best in independent and classic hip hop delivered to you and hosted by yours truly and Alexie F. The 4th anniversary show is still dropping and the next slew of shows will not disappoint. Since we were on hiatus, Barack Obama became the President-Elect of The United States. So you know we had to share our thoughts about that. The music industry is gearing up for their final releases of the year and we present a round of heaters old and new. The show features new joints from ICE CUBE, Q-TIP, COMMON, C RAYZ WALZ & KOSHA DILLZ, B.o.B, VAST AIRE, JAY ELECTRONICA and GODHEAD THE GENERAL over an exclusive EDAYE and DJ AMBUSH track from his street LP "Introducing...The Mixtape!".

In honor of The Universal Zulu Nation's 35th anniversary, I bring you a classic BUSY BEE track, "SUICIDE". I also drop songs from MC THERAPY (The Smile Rays), THE GAME and a new freestyle from our fam KID NOVICE. Upcoming shows will showcase a NICE & SMOOTH tribute and the long awaited ROOTS OF HIP HOP: REGGAE. Stay tuned..

YES WE DID!!!!!!

Well we as a country did it. I couldn't really sleep all night. I am still in shock. I was tearing up this morning as I told my baby boy about who his new president is. I wanted to be the first one to see his face this morning.
I am still answering text messages from last night. It appears that I had friends trying to call me last night from NYC and the phone lines were tied up.
I am still sad that my parents & grandparents were not alive to see this day. But am grateful that I did.
So my son Raymond got 2 sets of good news from election day. He is The school treasurer & Barack is the 44th President of our country

Tomorrow was just a Dream

November 3, 2008
Well tomorrow is slightly bitter sweet for me. You see, I would have loved for my father to have seen this day come. Something that he fought hard for, for much of his life. His generations were fighters and survivors. They knew what entitlement was.

A Southern man from North Carolina, who was drafted while in college in a segregated army during the Korean War. Would he have ever thought that a black man would actually be officially running for president? When Barack Accepted the nomination I literally got choked up. At that time I wasn't sure who I was supporting yet at that time, but to hear his official acceptence was so surreal.

So now my father, my grandfathers & my great-grandfathers will see history being made, through the eyes of their legacy my 2 sons.
