Radio 1 Rap Show 14.12.01
with Kay Slay and Swizz Beatz



'Super Ugly' has just dropped so all the talk on this show is centered around the Nas - Jay Z beef. I'd suggest skipping that and heading for the beginning of part two where Kay Slay drops 45 minutes of mostly dis tracks by The LOX, Cam'ron, Mobb Deep and Beanie Sigel. That Rocafella - D Block beef served up considerably better musical results than Nas and Jay managed.

Double D on Radio X 96FM (1997)



Some German rap radio that was in the batch of tapes Tobes donated. Think it's been paused-butoned a but but you do get a Guru freestyle at 25 mins. Shout to my Deutsche connect for the info on this one...

DJ Riz - 5 Minutes Of Funk (2017)



DJ Riz being disgustingly good at DJing for 20 minutes. This is very good and well worth a watch.

Funkmaster Flex on the Radio 1 Rap Show (1999)



3 hours of Flex here and he's actually in the UK, hyping things up for Tim's jam the following night. He kicks things off cutting up some breaks, throws on some new bits (Jay Z, Nas, Nore, Mobb Deep etc) and then into some 90s classics in part 2.



Looks like I have the tape of the live broadcast from The Temple the night after this so I'll post that up at some point too.

DJ 279 on Choice FM (2004)



Some 2004 Friday Night Flavas for you, with a few Wu Tang members on the phone and tunes by Jadakiss, Masta Ace, Masta Killa and Lloyd Banks, as well as 'Cry' by Swiss which must be the best So Solid Crew related track by some distance.

Liking this Love Unlimited sampling track 15 minutes in. Thought I recognised the rapper but turns out it's someone I've never heard of.

Black Rob - Future Flavas freestyle (1998)



Always happy to come across a Black Rob freestyle I haven't heard before and that's exactly what happened on my drive to work this morning when he popped up in the middle of a Future Flavas show from 1998. Shout out to DJ Diablo for hooking me up with this and a bunch of other FF shows.
