Funkmaster Flex - Capital Rap Show (1994)

Flex in the mix on what was the final 'Rap Exchange' show on Capital FM before Westwood made the move to the BBC and went national (Capital only broadcast to London and surrounding areas).
This is around the time when 'Shook Ones pt 2' and 'Supastar' were just blowing up


Mobb Deep ‘Shook Ones pt 2’
Craig Mack ‘Get Down’ (Q Tip remix)
Group Home ‘Supastar’
Kamikaze ‘Spread It’
World Reknown ‘How Nice I Am’
Ice Cube ‘What Can I Do’ (remix)
Fuschnickens ‘Breakdown’
Unknown party break
Da Youngstas ‘Mad Props’
Rayvon ‘Pretty’
Nas ‘One Love’
KRS One, Scarface & MC Serch freestyle
Keith Murray & 50 Grand freestyle
Unknown (Sah B? Paula Perry?)
Heather B ‘All Glocks Down’
Notorious BIG ‘Warning’
Artifacts 'Cummin Thru Ya Block'
Tim Dog ‘Bitch With A Perm’

I must have recorded this back then as I've previously posted the KRS One, Scarface & MC Serch freestyle that appears on the b-side. I dont have the full show though so shout out to Mr Lawson for the original tape.


  1. nice mix there thanks really like that unknown one cant think who it is dont think its paula perry dont say nothing on discogs for sah-b but it does sound like her a bit would be nice to just have that as a track thanks alot again for the mix.

  2. I really want the Capital show with Flex where he plays that Doug E. Fresh promo joint over the Before I Let Go break.

  3. i was after that Doug E Fresh thing for ages after taping it off a Flex mix. I dont have the tape anymore but did find out that the track is called 'Back In The Days'.
    it was on the b-side of the 'If I Was Your Man' 12" that he dropped when he was signed to Hammer's label Bust It

    get at me on the email if you want the MP3

  4. Damm. Excellent detective work, Step.

  5. wow. amazing to hear this again. This is what got me into DJing - big up yaself and Lawson...

  6. A real long-shot but... Anyone remember a track that came out around 95' on the Funkmaster Flex Radio Show called "Locked Down"? Sounded like Wu, or a couple of Wu members... I've been looking for it for years!

  7. I dont have it but was it this?

  8. Oh my god I used to listen to this when I was like 14. Thanks for sharing
