Fresh Out the Box Radio

Cities Aviv

James Goodmane

In the YouTube age radio is a medium that is often overlooked (no pun intended). From a personal standpoint I’ve had a love of radio since childhood. It was where I’d hear new music, interviews with my favorite artists and what I’d blast driving around town. There’s an artistry and personality that comes through radio that is timeless.

I was invited by the homies Geng-Grizzly and Note D to the BBOX Radio booth for their last episode of Fresh Out the Box. It was a great experience chopping it up on live radio with them and hearing new rap tunes that fall outside the usual mainstream suspects. Also notable on the show was the interview with Memphis rapper Cities Aviv and his manager James Goodmane. They are both extremely gracious people and they dropped ample knowledge of the Memphis rap scene.

If you are at all a hip-hop fan Fresh Out the Box is must-hear material. You can download the latest archived episode HERE. You can tune in live on BBOX Radio every Thursday from 7:30 to 9:30PM. If you liked this feature I recommend checking out  style profile I did with Note D. Look out for more collaborations with me and the Fresh Out the Box Crew in the next few weeks.
