December 12, Underground Railroad July December 7, Stone Alliance. I haven't heard all three of their albums, but I know this album, and Steve Grossman's solo work, has some good sounds. Mighty Mi plays a mix of late 80's hip hop and joints. Peace to StretchBobbitoand Greg T. Getting rid of some breaks and hip hop on ebay for those interested, check here Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Email This.
Mannish was also in the studio. One of the few shows I have 3 hours for, the Phracyde freestyle is pretty nice and pretty lengthy. Broadway was also Mason - Exceeder / Follow Me in the studio.
November 16, Drum Crazy November 7, Underground Railroad The show rocked for an extra hour because of the time shift, so you get 3 hours instead of 2. Underground Railroad I'm pretty sure this freestyle is floating around somewhere but here you get the whole show. Check out the Halftime Show on Wednesdays pm-1am on You get a full unpaused 2 hours on this one.
October 26, Westwood Rap Exchange. He's given me permission to share this one, so all of you out there get blessed with some classic UK hip hop radio. Being from New Jersey, I was obviously never able to tune in and listen to the show live, but listening 20 years later they still sound fresh! You'll hear a young Tragedy Intelligent Hoodlum on the mic dropping some rhymes and also the Fat Boys with a little freestyle session and album promotion.
The show began in February, and was called 'Boogie and the Barber. Stay tuned the following two Sunday nights for the next two. This Surrounded (Instrumental) - Dutchmin - Get Your Swerve On / Surrounded the very first 'Boogie and the Barber' show.
Unfortunately the sound isn't all that great in the beginning but it gets better He uses only records with Spinna production. The tape opens with a live performance from the Masterdon Committeecirca early 80's. Not sure if I taped that from somewhere else but it's fresh. Unfortunately, I only had a 60 minute tape for this one. Special guests in the studio also include Talib Kweli and Medina Green.
October 14, Squeeze Radio last show Unfortunately, tonight will be the last broadcast for the Squeeze Radio Show on 89tek9 WKCRso make sure and tune incall in, and show support. This is the first 2 hours or so of the show, uncut. The interviews on this show are pretty funny, Bobbito asks Camp Lo 'what's going on? Greg Nyce gives a little history of his career The Way You Look Tonight - Warne Marsh - A Good One then kicks a freestyle and a beatbox.
Track Listing. October 10, Missin' Linx Freestyles. This next tape has to be, hands down, one of my all time favorite tapes. There is literally treat after treat on this one. This one features Hari Bol (Kirtan) - Hari Om Sharan & Nandini Sharan - Gun-Gaan cutting it up and an appearance from a group called 'True to This' that I'm not familiar with. DJ Mighty Mi was also in the studio holding down the wheels for the freestyle session.
I'm forgetting who produced that Genius 'Labels' remix on here, but it's pretty bangin' Also you get a Rawcotiks demo on there. This one's going 15 years back to the day! Fat Beats NYC. September 12, Radio Promos. Every good hip hop radio show has a promo. Some are made by the show's hosts themselves while others are made by artsists who appear on the show. Some promos are played only a handful.
Regardless, these old radio drops usually had original production and lyrics, and they can be considered unreleased gems from the.
September 1, Getting rid of some tapes Side A Side B. This is another goodie from my boy Greg T 's collection, ripped by Stretch. I'd just like to send a taste of Cadbury out to my girl, know what I'm sayin?
I was going through some old cassettes I and found some material from the 'Drum Show'. I found a promo from the show done by O. Peep it August 15, Halftime Show - June This one's almost a full un-paused 2 hours. July 26, July 16, Goldmine. Here's a mix of early 90's hip hop and samples. I left off a track list so you can be surprised when the joints come in, but if anyone needs a track ID just ask. Feel free to pass this along and enjoy! Essential Elements.
For those of you who check The Essential Elements blog as regularly as I do and are wondering where it has disappeared to, The Supreme Unknown Surrounded (Instrumental) - Dutchmin - Get Your Swerve On / Surrounded blog's moderator has informed me that it has been shut down due to file sharing violations.
He is currently working on a replacement blog, The Essential Elements 2. July 6, Pookah. I just copped this one on the bay for a decent price. The joint featured here, 'Merlin's Party,' might have been sampled as I've heard it on a break mix, but I couldn't tell you by who if anyone knows let me know.
Anyway, the singer has a real scratchy voice and some bad acid trip lyrics. There's some nice bass, drum, guitar and organ sounds all throughout this LP, definitely gets a DW thumbs up.
June 22, Native Tongues. I'm re-posting this video material since blogger now has the option to 'full screen' videos bottom right If Id Sinned - Tina Dickow And Sheriff - Fuel and in case you missed them the first time they were posted.
These are two native tongue interviews from Yo! June 9, 3 years and running That's right folks, this month Dirty Waters hits the 3 year mark.

Speaking of Jersey, I just received word that the Artifacts are back in effect with plans to make a reunion album. This is long overdue and I'm excited to see what they have planned. I'm not sure about the details release dates, production, etc. My boy Kes received word from El directly that there are plans for this reunion but as of right now nothing has been set in motion.
Jersey stand up! June 1, Lord Finesse Freestyle Here's another Stretch Armstrong Show with Bobbito holding down the wheels solo. There is some ringing feedback on this one, but still a good 90 minute mix from the good old days.
Halftime One of the perks of doing a blog like this is when I'll occasionally get in touch with the artists featured here. Sometimes the artists lose their own A Handful Of Memries - Van Lynn And His Orchestra - Escape and it's always a treat to be able to give it back to them.
I knew acrhiving ridiculous amounts of cassettes over the years would come in handy one day. I recently got in contact with Ce-Style from the group Total Pack and took the opportunity to do an interview. Ce Style shed some light on what went down with Total Pack and the current projects he is working on under his new name, Corey Drumz.
Another set from Stretch on Hot 97 from September,
