A mix of a few hip-hop album-only classics, all from original vinyl. Which means, they all sound crunchy and old and kinda rough. But hopefully also fun.
Tracklisting: Freddie Foxxx, Jungle Brothers, Organized Konfusion, Yo-Yo, LLCoolJ, 3rd Bass, EPMD, Above the Law, Del the Funkee Homosapien, Gang Starr, MC Lyte, Big Daddy Kane, Ice Cube, Black Sheep.
I thought I’d dedicate a few jazz selections from all-time Tribe songs with especially classic Phife verses to the one and only Funky Diabetic. Tribe’s music is forever, and changed my life forever. Styles upon styles upon styles. Rest in Power Phife Dawg.
Latest Pullin from the Stacks episodes:
Another couple months, another five episodes of Pullin from the Stacks. Thanks to everyone for the continued support! Check out Soundcloud and iTunes for tracklistings and regular updates.
Sorry for the lag in web updates – for those who don’t know, I’m more frequently updating social media – Soundcloud, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr – than this website, which remains a “home base” but I don’t always have time to keep up with.
As 2015 winds down, here’s the last few episodes of Pullin from the Stacks. It’s been a very busy fall season and I haven’t had the time to put together and finish several other projects I’ve been working on, but hopefully in the new year there’ll be a few cool treats in addition to the ongoing podcast series. Many thanks to all that continue to listen and support the podcast though! Much appreciated.
Hope everyone is well.
Two more recent episodes for you all the check – first, I was able to go to Cuba last month for work-related reasons, and get a little bit of digging in. So I put together a mix of some of my favorites from that trip. Next, I’ve recently been grabbing some long sought-after pieces the past couple months, and wanted to play a few on the latest episode, along with some other eclectic selections. Be sure to check out that new Sly 5th Avenue record, available from my people at Kooyman Records: http://kooymanrecords.bandcamp.com.
Thanks for everyone’s support on this podcast the past year! More to come.

An update for everyone on the latest podcasts and such. Life has been busy, but look for some upcoming things this fall – a couple new mixes and some production on a joint or two. The Pullin from the Stacks podcast will continue for now…but it might be a little more sporadic in the future.
Most Pullin from the Stacks episodes continue to be available on Soundcloud – http://soundcloud.com/djianhead – and all episodes are available on iTunes. Folks looking for tracklists might want to check out my Instagram account for clues or feel free to email or leave comments with any questions.
