Halftime Big Playback

This is a treat for all you fans of the older (80's and early 90's) hip hop. The Halftime Show used to do Ego Trip nights dedicated to the older stuff, and this might be the second or third installment of those shows. You get a nice blend of old school gems along with a little history lesson in the mix.

You'll hear a good 60 minutes from DJ Riz and DJ Eclipse with special guests including the writers of the 'Ego Trip's Big Book of Rap Lists', promoting the book which just came out in stores (a really good book). Also in the studio they had MC Mitch-ski who put out 'Brooklyn Blew up the Bridge' a record dissing MC Shan and Marley Marl during the KRS-One Vs MC Shan battle that was going on back then. During their live interview Mitch-Ski explains how the record came about and follows with a freestyle. Enjoy...
