I never thought I’d see the day when Ice Cube was quiet and John Legend was loud.

Snobs. Swag.

After we broke down the power of Cali crew Odd Future, the legendary UK DJ AllyAl was inspired to bless us with a guest DJ mix for our The Music Snobs In The Mix series. Al’s mix serves as a graduate lesson in all things OFWGKTA, spanning the L.A. supergroup’s hip-hop, soul and remix projects, well worthy of Snobs everywhere.

Episode 027

For the seminally smooth band Sade, the combination of impenetrable cool and mainstream dominance is a daily operation. The Music Snobs wonder: How has this ultra-lowkey singer and group sold 60 million records while remaining so beautifully enigmatic? Next up, in a segment dedicated to a legend, Jehan, Arthur, Scoop, and Isaac ask What If Frankie Knuckles had never moved to Chicago? And for the hoop fan in you, the Snobs take a look at the marriage, and quiet divorce, of the NBA and hip-hop. Finally, during a painful Roundtable, the crew spill some liquor for the loss of their most treasured pieces of music.

Episode 026

Are the Roots still legendary? The Music Snobs and guest-Snob Nicholas Payton take time out to examine the late night tenure of Hip-Hop’s favorite band and wonder out loud if Questlove and crew have overstayed—and maybe even begun to fade. Then TMS gets technological by asking: What If the iPod had never been invented? Next, the Snobs + Nic anoint Donald Byrd the godfather of ’soul jazz’… almost. Lastly, a new TMS round table gives each Snob a chance to build the ultimate emcee by plucking individual skills from legends—and creating an icon.
