Episode 79 sets off our 5th season of Take It Personal Radio. On this episode, we're bringing you our Year In Review and since there was a lot of dope material that dropped in 2020, we're making the Year In Review a 2-parter. We're playing some of our favorites, your favorites and some of the hidden gems of 2020 on these shows. We've got music from Black Thought, Roc Marciano, Th1rt3en, The LOX, Griselda, Busta Rhymes, Sa-Roc, Elzhi, The Starting 5ive, MC Eiht and much more.

We're also starting off the year right with special guest Pharoahe Monch. Making this his 3rd appearance on TIP, we discuss the forthcoming album A Magnificent Day For An Exorcism. Pharoahe breaks down the making of this album and what Th1rt3en is all about. He also shares the reaction some rappers like Nas and Black Thought had when hearing the record. We got some Spitkicker stories. We got MF DOOM stories. We got everything from Trump talk to the NY Mets, all the way to The Mandalorian. We got Pharoah f*ckin' Monch in the building!
