We share a few tracks as well. A few from Ohga's back catalog, a couple from Flat Stanley's new project, "If Not Now, When?" and also a track from the new Gangstarr album. You know the vibes.

Tokyo Mega Late Show

Japanese emcee, Ohga, has had a long and amazing career. He first found hip-hop culture while growing up in New York but right around adulthood he would return back to his parents home country of Japan. In both places hes felt somewhat outside of each culture but it also provided him with a unique outlook on both.We talk a lot about his personal life experiences in both the states and here, writing raps in Japanese and English, how the languages differ grammatically and how poetic devices in English differ from Japanese. We talk about his early love of Biggie and a bunch of other stuff.The big homie, Shux Wun of Music & Strength, also joins in as guest co-host. He and Ohga have been friends and working together for several years. Check this episode out and make sure you tune in to part 2. Drops on Tuesday. On that we listen to some of Ohgas music and much more.@megalateshow on everything

MLS #62: The Shux Wun Episode

Tokyo Mega Late Show

Yo peace, you! Another long and action packed episode fo dat azz. Rank these MCs: Del, Inspectah Deck and Big Boi!!!! Yeah we asked the homie Shux the same question. There is a correct answer and it is not information. Joining us today iShux Wun. Hes is kinda of a Tokyo Hiphop scene OG. Not in the sense that hes been working in the hiphop scene for decades or is super well known in the scene but in the sense that he was trying to expose the tokyo scene for american audiences way back in the aughts. Its difficult to find anyone else that was really doing it at his level of success. He also used to rock with The Breakdown in Shibuya. BING! Shux was working with a now defunct hiphop media outlet, IAMHIPHOP DOT COM, interviewing major artists, following tours, and eventually ended in Tokyo working on his project, The Shux Files. He was interviewing and documenting the scene out here in Tokyo way back in the aughts. He probably wouldnt suggest it but you can find a bunch of those videos on Youtube and theyre dope.. We talked to Shux about his life in hiphop culture and some of his experiences interviewing major artists. Working in the tokyo scene with locals and other gaijin mfers. Also we just talked shit about whatever per usual. Shout out to the Breakdown!!! Shux brought super OG Huntley Nicholas with him. Huntley is a walking history book and did the sound work for the the 1983 documentary, Breakin N Enterin. Which detailed the then newly emerging west coast b-boy poppin and lockin scene. Huntley didnt speak much but were hoping to have him back on the show. The super elusive mega late show member, D Dahlinger, was also here as usual. This episode also includes our new segment. An ongoing project to rank and debate the greatest and not so great albums since 2010. Zoom in on that. Shout out to O-side California, Digital Mozart, and Mike Larry Draw! Weather Report - Mike Larry Draw - Kami Noketo ( a currently unreleased track from upcoming album dropping in February) Bobby Sessions - RVLTN BREAKIN N ENTERIN: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GFkgObeA8AU&index=11&list=LLDMlgoPQeNXeX24Vq2SOCzg&t=122s ***LINKS**** Megalateshow /on twitter, Facebook and Instagram faturl.com/megalateshow/?selected=0 paypal.me/megalateshow Weather Forecast calendar of upcoming dope culture shows going on in Tokyo! ↓↓↓↓↓↓↓↓ goo.gl/SmRW9u If you want your show in the Weather Forecast make sure to hit us at: mlsweatherforecast@gmail.com
