 Episode 82- Killah Priest: Rapper & Wu-Tang Killah Bee on Music, history & conspiracies | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

Today we are joined by the man, the myth, the legend Killah Priest. Brooklyn rapper Killah Priest has spent his lengthy, respected career making intensely spiritual music that connects Gnostic religious philosophy with the contemporary Black struggle. He made his first appearances on several Wu-Tang Clan side and solo projects, including albums by Gravediggaz, Ol' Dirty Bastard, and Genius/GZA, leading to the signing of his group Sunz of Man and the release of his acclaimed debut album, 1998's Heavy Mental. After leaving the major-label system, he went independent with 2001's Priesthood, and became an integral member of supergroups the HRSMN (aka the Four Horsemen) and Black Market Militia. He's continued releasing ambitious, metaphor-heavy solo albums such as 2007's The Offering and 2013's The Psychic World of Walter Reed, and produced some of the most experimental, spiritually advanced work of his career with later works such as 2020's Rocket to Nebula. Born in Brooklyn and raised in Bedford-Stuyvesant and Brownsville, Killah Priest (Walter Reed) became infatuated with hip-hop as a child, listening to old-school and new-school acts alike. He also was influenced by local figures Genius and Onyx's DJ Suave, who would often play local parties. Killah Priest began working on his rhyming and eventually earned a considerable reputation in his neighborhood, but instead of furthering his musical career, he took a sabbatical to educate himself, primarily about religion and history, which had a major impact on his songwriting. Priest made his return to rap in 1994, appearing on several Wu-Tang projects including Gravediggaz' 6 Feet Deep, Ol' Dirty Bastard's Return to the 36 Chambers, and Genius/GZA's seminal Liquid Swords. All of his cameos were noteworthy, but his role on Liquid Swords -- especially "B.I.B.L.E. (Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth)," essentially a Priest solo track -- earned special attention. By the end of 1996, his own group, Sunz of Man, was off the ground, having become the first act signed to Wu-Tang Records. In 1997, GZA suggested to Geffen that they should sign Priest, and the label took his advice. Priest worked on his debut solo album with True Master and 4th Disciple, two producers who were also associated with Wu-Tang. The resulting album, Heavy Mental, was dense with religious imagery and filled with evocative sounds. It received excellent reviews upon its March 1998 release and was a respectable commercial success, debuting at number 24 on the Billboard 200. Priest issued his second album, View from Masada, in May 2000, further bolstering his status as one of the most compelling solo artists in the extended Wu-Tang family (even though, at the time, he was disconnected from the crew). Although View from Masada was well-received, it failed to do well commercially, and he was dropped from his label. While many rappers let go from a major-label either vanish or take years to resurface, Priest wasted no time and established his own imprint. July 2001's Priesthood, involving no Wu-Tang input whatsoever, was produced by Luminati and Nirocist, and released on the MC's Proverbs imprint. July 2003's Black August, however, came out on Recon. Although he certainly wasn't silent after this -- Black Market Militia (featuring Tragedy Khadafi and Hell Razah), the HRSMN (featuring Ras Kass, Kurupt, and Canibus), and Sunz of Man were ongoing concerns -- a few years passed before Priest's next solo album. March 2007's The Offering appeared on the Traffic-distributed Good Hands Records. His release schedule picked up considerably -- Behind the Stained Glass, Black August Revisited, and Beautiful Minds, the latter a full-length collaboration with Chief Kamachi, were all released in 2008. The Exorcist, Elizabeth, and several mixtapes appeared in 2009. The 3 Day Theory, featuring guest appearances by several emcees including Cappadonna, Ill Bill, and the Last Emperor, was released by Man Bites Dog in 2010. Following several delays, Killah Priest returned in 2013 with the ambitious double-CD The Psychic World of Walter Reed, a reunion of sorts with the Wu-Tang family, featuring guest rhymes and production by GZA, RZA, Inspectah Deck, and Ghostface Killah, as well as an appearance by George Clinton. The more sci-fi-themed Planet of the Gods appeared in 2015, and Priest formed the group Moon Crickets with Toronto-based rapper Lord Fury and DJ Mercilless. The Infinite Universe, with Vendetta Kingz, was released in 2016, and the mixtapes Don't Sit on the Speakers, Vol. 1 (with 4th Disciple) and The Untold Story of Walter Reed, Pt. 2 appeared in 2017. A 2020 mixtape with frequent collaborator Jordan River Banks, Journey to the Planet of the Gods preceded one of Priest's deepest, most abstract releases, Rocket to Nebula, an often-beatless record filled with reversed samples and ambient textures. A proper album with Banks, The Third Eye in Technicolor, closed out the year. The cinematic Lord Sun Heavy Mental 1.1 appeared in March of 2021.

 Episode 81- Micah Nelson aka Particle Kid, Psychedelics, his art, Hemp as the future | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

Today we are joined by Los Angeles-based musician and visual artist Micah Nelson. Micah, a prolific artist and musician of many disciplines, performs and releases under the name ‘Particle Kid’. Particle Kid’s new sprawling epic double-LP, ‘Time Capsule’, released April 22, ‘22 via Overseas Artists Records, pulls listeners down the rabbit hole to experience the music he’s been making over the past five years. His self-described “experimental future-folk solo project” takes listeners on a nearly two-hour trip through various genres, ideas and sounds. An eclectic palette of sonic colors, both familiar and exploratory feelings painted together like a collage, as if 90s alt, 60s psych, 70s electric jazz, and some abstract future were all magazines—chopped up and somehow cohesively glued together by Micah’s voice and lyrics as well as guest spots from Margo Price, J Mascis and Sean Ono Lennon, among others. Micah Nelson’s diverse releases as Particle Kid have taken an exploratory bent, combining lo-fi loops and strange textural elements with more straight forward Folk and Indie Rock songwriting. Micah, youngest son of country music icon Willie Nelson and occasional member of brother Lukas Nelson’s band, ‘Promise of the Real’, has been performing since his live debut at the age of 3, playing harmonica on stage with his dad. You can learn more about Micah’s artwork and music via his official website particlekid.com, His instagram @particlekid, Bandcamp, Spotify and Apple Music.

 Episode 76- Loren Fjord- Strength, Parkour traceur and natural movement coach | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

Today we are once again joined by our friend Loren Fjord. If you haven't caught our last episode with Loren, Loren’s time as a youth wasn’t spent playing team sports, but rather filled my days (and nights) vaulting fences, climbing trees, running from neighborhood dogs, jumping off rooftops, and getting into that which would, on the surface, be considered “mischief.” Parkour provided Fjord with a legitimate framework to pursue and foster his natural human abilities to walk, run, jump, crawl, roll, climb, and balance outside of conventional sports. Movement helped Fjord build a sense of self-confidence and a unique and tangible relationship with my capabilities based on truth rather than frivolous and arbitrary metrics so commonly applied today. Loren works with hundreds of amazing humans from children as young as 6 to adults in their 70s, from all backgrounds and walks of life, testing varied approaches to reverse movement dysfunction and gain strength, flexibility and new skills to improve overall physical literacy. Fjord also holds a B.S. in Kinesiology and Nutrition from Oregon State University. Loren owns and operates HumanWild. HumanWild is an education platform designed to help you achieve movement freedom. The cross discipline program is woven together to help anyone bring their body into balance for optimal strength, range and skill development. Loren is offering a free 30 min coaching consult and 25% off your first month to any listeners of the RMP if you mention our show when you contact and sign up for Loren’s training programs.

 Episode 75- It's a Fireside Chat Baby! Rik's scared of Justin Trudeau + cheap Russian oil futures | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

Oh shit it’s another Fireside Chat!! Rik and Jon are loose and ready to riff. Rik spent the last week in New York City, Jon had a very interesting week, Rik is scared of Justin Trudeau, Jon says ‘Fuck NATO’ with his whole chest and Rik gets us all a tight discount on Russian oil futures. Buckle up kiddos. We as a podcast also wanted to say something about all of the hate that people have been levying at average everyday Russians. Facebook has announced recently that they will ‘temporarily allow‘ any kind of hateful posts and content directed at Russia and Russian people. This is ABHORRENT. We are completely disgusted by this. Average Russians have nothing to do with the actions of their government, just the same as Americans have little to do with the actions of the American government. Hate on Vladimir Putin. Hate on the Russian and American oligarchs. Hate on NATO. Those are your enemies. Those are the people who are escalating this war. Fight for peace ON ALL FRONTS. Don’t trust the media and don’t trust what the American government and NATO are telling you. Don’t be a fucking moron.
