Nas - Represent (Original Version)

As the story goes, the album version of Represent on Nas' Illmatic is a remix. After Premier heard all the work going into the album, and all the beats that were getting placed, Premier was inspired to remix the track. If you haven't heard, peep it...



Just caught the Drink Champs with Pete Rock and Premier, some great stories behind some of their best records included on there..

Stretch & Bobbito 6-29-1995

Bobbito fills in for Stretch on this show, playing a mix of old school, demos, promos, a live Cold Crush show from 1981, and on the second half goes into a Kool G Rap tribute. Good show. Unfortunately not the full 4 hours, but most of it. Pretty sure this was an Aleph upload, so big shout.

Stretch & Bobbito 1991 (w/Percee P & DMX)

This one is a request from Irish Craig. This was one from Stretch's short-lived blog konstant kontact. It's one of the earliest available Stretch Armstrong shows from 1991, featuring Percee P, and a then unknown DMX. As you can hear he claims 'the original author of spellbound.'

This is an unreleased track from the 'Sittin' on Chrome' LP. It came out as a B-side on the test pressing of the Sittin' on Chrome 12". Pretty sure it's Digga production as well.
