Tim Westwood - Capital Rap Show (1994)
Ah, June 94: I'd just finished my exams and discovered getting stoned. 'Illmatic' had just dropped and Westwood's show was still a must on the weekends.
Theres some good stuff on this tape - 'Cuz Its Wrong' by Slick Rick for one, as I'd completely forgotten how much I liked that track. Also, theres LL's elusive (although allegedly dropping soon) 'Year Of The Hip Hop', Nice N Smooth, Rampage, Guttersnypes, OC and Kurious. Side 2 is more smoothed out with some Snoop, Warren G, Blackstreet and Hi-Five.
Thanks to Mr Lawson for the tape.
