Radio 1 Rap Show (August 1995)

Don't have an exact date for this one but it's a friday, the week after a Rap Exchange, Lennox Lewis is on the following night and Tim mentions Carnival is coming up so it's almost certainly August. Only 60 minutes long but there's a classic 7 minute Ultramagetic MCs freestyle (with Tim Dog) from 1989.  I posted that on it's own years ago, but here it is again if you missed it. If anyone can ID the 2 party breaks for me that'd be great. Always liked the 'What about Uptown in the house?!' one over Bring The Pain. That RBX track dissing Dr Dre is pretty terrible btw.

Redman & Method Man - How High
Doug E Fresh - Where's The Party At
'Is New York In The House' party break
Raekwon - Knowledge God
Redman ft Roz - I Get Down Like That
Erick Sermon & Keith Murray - It's My Thing
Ultramagnetic MCs - Capital Rap Show freestyle (1989)
'What about Uptown in the house' party break
South Central Cartel ft Jayo Felony, MC Eiht, Spice 1 & Treach - So What Cha Sayin
Raekwon - Ice Cream
Kool G Rap - Its A Shame
A Tribe Called Quest - Glamour & Glitz
LL Cool J - Papa Luv It

Think I got this tape off Rich (hope it's all going well in Russia mate, assuming Putin hasn't blocked OB4ZL out there).
Reminder that I try to avoid posting too many Westwood shows in a row so occasionally post some on the Mixcloud page that might not make it to  the blog, as well as reposting other shows other people have uploaded on there. So keep an eye on it is what I'm saying. That and the Hip Hop Radio Archive. Got some other things lined up for here but been short of time recently. I do still have a ton of Westwood tapes from 99-02 to get through but I'll try and mix it up with some other bits.
