Listen to The 40 Oz Show, bitches!

It seems like I’ve been MIA a little more than usual this summer, so the show’s hasn’t gone down as planed a few times. The reason for the last two weeks of silence: 40 Oz Studios has moved from SF to The O, and my little “lab” has been boxed until recently.

Despite the move, things won’t change — You can still catch The 40 Oz Show every Friday at 4 p.m. on 93.7 FM SF CA, and on WestAddRadio.com; and the podcast will be updated on the weekends at GurpCity.com and WestAddRadio.com.

Here’s the newest playlist. You know the drill for downloading…

  • UGK, “Chrome Plated Woman,” Underground Kingz (Jive)
  • Tash, “Nightfall,” Rap Life (Sony/Columbia)
