Writer, actor, A&R, sneaker addict and all-around amazing story-teller, Bonz Malone joins Take It Personal on our Prodigy tribute show. There are people in this world that talk about it and then there are those who live it. Bonz Malone does both. After 3+ decades of contributions, Bonz has been apart of some of the greatest hip-hop stories, movements and even movies. Whether it was his time penning acclaimed features in The Source, Vibe and Spin, appearing in the movies Whiteboyz, Brooklyn Babylon, Life, consulting for Juice or even winning the Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival for his own movie Slam, Bonz has done more than most people. In this interview, he entertains, informs and shares some great stories about Wu-Tang, the time he lost the chance to sign Biggie over a friendly dice game, and of course, signing Mobb Deep to their first record deal.

On November 2, 2016 The "Take It Personal" Podcast was launched as the Golden Era and boom-bap-focused podcast to beat all Podcasts. Broadcasting all the way live from Del Boca Vista and brought to you by the Philaflava crew, who founded one of Complex Magazine's "Top 10 Most Influential Hip-Hop Message Boards," well as authoritative subject matter blogs, T.R.O.Y and "Steady Bloggin'," the show and its brand of witty nuance and authentic reverence is here to fill the nostalgia void in your heart, and, as Chino XL once said, "Here To Save You All." Come to where Exit 33 meets Memory Lane at the Honeycomb Hideout, as DJ 360 and co-hosts Jason Gloss, Aaron Wade, Roger the Announcer and Kevlar take you on a sonic voyage from past to present and back again!
