Tim Westwood with Jay Z on Radio 1 (2000)

Jay Z passes through Westwood's Radio 1 Rap Show to promote his 'Volume 3' album that had dropped a couple of months earlier.

Boom-Bap purists beware: Side A of this tape is very heavy on the Ruff Ryders-Cash Money-Bad Boy side of things, including a Puff Daddy & Shyne freestyle and that Murder Inc joint that uses the Rocky theme tune. It also features the very dope 'Queens Day' by Run DMC, Nas & Prodigy which is one of those things Nas should've snapped up for his own album (do you know anyone that bought 'Crown Royal'?).
The Jay Z stuff is all on the B side and includes the freestyle he did for Marley Marl using some old Juice Crew beats. I posted that an eternity ago so if you want it on its own GO HERE


  1. do you have the show with puff & shyne?

  2. no, afraid not. I'll keep an eye out for it though

  3. Big thanks fella - Cheers for this
