Tuesday 11/23/21 12am ET: Feature LP: Arrested Development – 3 Years, 5 Months and 2 Days in the Life Of… (1992)

3 Years, 5 Months and 2 Days in the Life Of… is the debut album by American hip hop group Arrested Development, released on March 24, 1992. The album’s chart success was the beginning of the popularization of Southern hip hop. 3 Years, 5 Months and 2 Days in the Life Of… stood in stark contrast to the gangsta rap that ruled the hip hop charts in 1992 (such as Dr. Dre’s The Chronic), in its focus on spirituality, peace and love. The album’s title refers to the length of time it took Arrested Development to get a record contract.

Feature Artist: Beck (Singles) 10pm ET

BeckBeck Hansen (born Bek David Campbell; July 8, 1970),[4] known by the stage name Beck, is an American singer-songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist. He rose to fame in the early 1990s with his lo-fi, sonically experimental style, and he became well known for creating musical collages of a wide range of styles. His later recordings encompass folk, funk, soul, hip hop, alternative rock, country, and psychedelia. He has released 12 studio albums, as well as several non-album singles and a book of sheet music.

Born in Los Angeles in 1970, Beck discovered hip hop and folk music in his teens and began to perform locally at coffeehouses and clubs. He moved to New York City in 1989 and became involved in the city’s small but intense anti-folk movement. After returning to his hometown in the early 1990s, he cut his breakthrough single “Loser”, which became a worldwide hit in 1994. His 1996 album Odelay produced hit singles, topped critic polls and won several awards. He released the stripped-down Mutations in 1998, and the funk-infused Midnite Vultures in 1999. The downcast, acoustic Sea Change (2002) showcased a more serious Beck, and 2005’s Guero returned to sample-based production. The Information (2006) was inspired by electro-funk and hip hop, and Modern Guilt (2008), likewise, by 1960s music. In February 2014, Beck released the album Morning Phase. It won Album of the Year at the 57th Grammy Awards on February 8, 2015. – Wikipedia
