Rhymes & Reasons Interviews Speech About the Hip Hop Songs that Changed His Life

Rhymes & Reasons presents a recent gem in our series of interviews with hip-hop heads on the songs that matter most to them: Speech of Arrested Development.

In 1993, A.D. was named Band of the Year by Rolling Stone and won two Grammy awards. Their singles “Tennessee,” “Everyday People,” and “Mr. Wendal” are landmarks in the history of real, radio-friendly conscious hip-hop. Maybe the Atlanta-based group was ahead of its time.

Speech talks about Public Enemy’s “Rebel without a Pause,” De La Soul’s “3 Is the Magic Number,” and what KRS-One had to say on his voicemail ten years later


Check out the interview below:


The Hip Hop world has suffered a great loss.

Heavy D passed away today, at the age of 44.

No word on the cause of death, but this is definitely shocking  and tragic news.

We all have our favorite Heavy D tracks, but “Nuttin’ But Love” is definitely my personal fave.
