Lord Sear Special


The Lord Sear Special was a short lived show after the CM Famalam Show ended, and before the Squeeze Radio Show began. Lord Sear was the host and J-Love was the DJ, although I remember DJ Evil Dee and Boogie Blind coming up a few times also. Pretty sure this tape is from 2003.

Dujeous - Cinematics



This track is from a hip hop band called Dujeous. If you listened to Stretch & Bobbito circa 1996 this song should be familiar to you. I remember being really impressed when I saw these guys perform this song live at the Wetlands back in the day. Enjoy..

Gambler tracks

So I've been watching parts of the World Series of Poker this year, and it got me thinking about what I might listen to in my Ipod if I was playing. It's hard to imagine having to grind through hours of a tournament like that without listening to some music. Hip hop always makes for a good playlist at the poker table, or even when playing video poker. Here are a few tracks with a gambling/poker theme that you might want to play at your next game.

Ghostface Killah - Pokerface


Money Boss Players - crap game


Kool G Rap - 4, 5, 6

Stretch & Bobbito 10-10-1996



Here's another Stretch & Bobbito show from around the 6 year anniversary. Bobbito is in the studio solo playing the best freestyles from 1995-1996, along with some live performances, demos, and other exclusive treats. You get about 2 hours on this one. Peace to Greg T.

Big City Records, NJ



I usually don't hype events, releases or stores, but I definitely want to see this store stay in business...

Big City Records has been around since November of last year. Not sure if there is an affiliation with the Big City Records in NY, but the store is kind of like the NJ version. They have a good amount of Rock, Soul, Jazz, Disco and Hip Hop, and not a bullshit selection. 



I stopped by the store for the first time this Saturday. I didn't get a chance to go through all of the boxes thoroughly, but I breezed through the hip hop crates and caught a 'What's Next' Extra P remix for $3 and the 'Kaught in the AK'  Premier remix for $1. New Jersey does not have a good amount of record stores surviving, so if you are in the NJ area check these guys out.

DJ Eclipse Interview





DJ Eclipse...
Fat Beats, Rock Steady Crew, Halftime Radio, Rap is Outta Control, Wild Pitch Records, Non-Phixion, Heavy Metal Kings need I say more??






Few DJ's can match Eclipse's dedication to the music and longevity in the game. His work at Fat Beats (the go-to source for underground NY hip hop since 1994), and his work on numerous radio shows, has brought him world-wide recognition, but has kept him down to earth and in touch with his fans. I took the opportunity to interview DJ Eclipse about his work over the years. For those of you who aren't familiar with DJ Eclipse, this track should explain his steez...
