Time to start a new series here at UntitledType. I’m going to call this, for lack of a better title, “The iPod Five” and I hope to do this often. I’m sometimes surprised by the random shit I find on the iPods of people close to me who work in this industry. And I think what a person listens to in their spare time can be very indicative of their personality. Who knows what they have hiding on there! So, I’m going to start asking random people I encounter what’s on their iPod…and as a bonus I might throw some dl links or old, classic music videos your way just to spice things up a little. So let’s get familiar with some people, shall we?
I wanted to kick this series off right and show some love to a rare breed of person – the female Hip Hop head. So allow me to introduce you to the lovely Yaya Martinez, by way of Phoenix and a DJ on Power 98.3 FM, and her just-as-lovely iPod:
1. “Feelin It” – Jay-z (off Reasonable Doubt) [download]
2. “Heatwave” – Ras Kass & Dj Rhettmatic (off A.D.I.D.A.S.) [download]
3. “So Cool” – Rah Digga(off Dirty Harriet)
4. “Lazer Gunne Funke” – J Dilla (off Jay Stay Paid)
5. “We Fight/We Love” – Q -Tip (off The Renaissance) [download]
Looks like we have quite the Hip Hop purist on our hands. No wonder her radio show is so damn good! You can follow Yaya on twitter: @yayamartinez and catch her live on “The Pulse” via Power 98.3 every Saturday 1-4am.
