Here's a full 3 hours of Westwood on this date 21 (!) years ago. A strange combo of guests as before Souls of Mischief pass through Prince Naseem is in the house. Shame the latter gets a bit more airtime than the Souls but we still get a freestyle from them at the end. Tracklist below

RIP Earl. This is taken from a Westwood show in October '99 but the tracks are all circa Its Dark and Hell Is Hot. I think this is in New York and it sounds like Big Kap introducing him at the start. The crowd are hyped for this and X run's through a 25 minute set with all his early bangers and brings out The LOX for Money Power Respect and Redman and Method Man for 4,3,2,1. I never saw him live but he sounds like a great performer. If you somehow still haven't seen the video of him at Woodstock '99 go find that.
If you're in the mood for more DMX today, go back and check this tape I posted back in 2016 with a bunch of freestyles from 1996.
There's also this tape of him guesting on Westwood's show in June 2000
It looks like Black Rob is in a bad way too, let's hope he pulls through. This remix of Mic Geronimo's track featuring Rob and X is dope and somewhat slept on.
