Podcast 73: CYNE's Hip-Hop Experience

The music of CYNE (pronounced “sign,” and standing for "cultivating your new experience”) is all about hard-hitting beats and introspective lyrics concerned with socio-political issues, and the group cites everyone from Nas and Public Enemy to J Dilla and DJ Premier as an influence (as seen on last year's Pretty Dark Things).

When asked to fashion a podcast for XLR8R, the four-man hip-hop collective compiled 18 tracks by like-minded artists and created a virtual timeline of hip-hop and rap music, from old favorites like N.W.A. and Camden Crew to up-and-comers like eLZhi, and, appropriately, since February celebrates the anniversary of his death, an opening track from the late J Dilla.

"the group cites everyone from Nas and Public Enemy to J Dilla and DJ Premier as an influence "

So they're influenced by typical hip hop influencers?
