Showbiz & AG - Stand Strong

I consider Showbiz & AG's 'Goodfellas' a top ten hip hop album. You never really hear this LP mentioned when people talk about favorites, but for me it is's definitely up there. The production sound Showbiz had during this time was so unique. It was a departure from the jazzy, funky stuff they were doing on 'Runaway Slave' to a more cryptic, grimy sound.

I picked up this 'Unreleased Shit' a while back for 'Under Pressure,' which was an incredible track I thought needed a spot on the LP. Going back to it recently, I forgot about this track 'Stand Strong,' which was equally as dope. You had AG at his best, Lord Finesse on the hook, and Showbiz with the gutter beats that matched the rest of the album. The way he throws the samples in and out at the end is pretty fresh too.

20 years of DJing

It was around this time 20 years ago, in 1994, when I got my first DJ set-up. A pair of Technics 1210s and a Gemini Scratchmaster mixer. I don't often do editorial pieces on my blog, but seeing this year marks my 20th year of DJ'ing, I wanted to write up a little piece to mark this occasion.
