    Height Zone World 60. My guest this week is Matt Greenfield. He recently directed Destroy Cleveland, a documentary about the Cleveland hardcore scene in the 80’s. Matt has spent years making music as MC Homeless and as Peaks, Ohio. We first met when our tours crossed paths in Pittsburgh in 2005, and I was amped to get the scoop on his whole career.

    He tells me about his early years playing hip-hop shows in the rust belt, and the surprise success of his debut full-length. We discuss the brutality of DIY touring, and his indefinite hiatus from the rap game. We talk about him switching gears to new forms of creativity, and the process of putting this new documentary together.

    Mike Riley’s art this week is an homage to Schoolly D’s Smoke Some Kill. This episode is hosted by splicetoday.com.

    Height Zone World 59. My guest this week is the legendary Sha-Rock, of Funky Four Plus One. They were one of the biggest hip-hop groups in the era before rap records, and they went on to release classic singles in the late 70’s and early 80’s. She was the first female MC in hip-hop, and they were the first hip-hop group to play on Saturday Night Live. She’s one of my favorite MC’s in the history of rap, and it was honor to have her on the show.

    She talks about her initial entrance into hip-hop as a B-girl, and her pioneering use of the echo chamber (which Run-DMC would later cite as an influence). We talk about their journey from packed shows in the Bronx to a sold-out nationwide tour with Grandmaster Flash and The Furious Five, Sequence, Sugarhill Gang and more. She explains their role in bringing rap shows to the punk rock world for the first time, and the influence they had on groups like The Beastie Boys. This episode is hosted by splicetoday.com.
