New York Live May 1996 (Das Efx, Natural Elements)

Dug up this dusty, 89.1 WNYU, New York Live Show from sometime around April/May of 1996.

DJ Mayhem, A-Butta and L-Swift were fresh back from their trip to London, recording joints with the Creators as 2-Face. The rip starts off with Mayhem debuting an unmixed version of 'Hey, Hey, Hey' and then flows into a freestyle session with diggy Das Efx promoting 'Hold it Down.'

They close it out with a long freestyle session featuring A-Butta, L-Swift, AL Skills, and Quiz. This was Natural Elements off the top, at their best, flowing off the last word in each other's lines.
