Reup: Freak Thing

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

This was one of my first drops back in 2007 but I'm re-upping for those that might have missed it.. unreleased joint from LL Cool J on the freak nasty tip, talking about sneaking into girls bedrooms and sipping St. Ides from a high heeled shoe. Nice. I'm guessing this track was done sometime around the '14 shots to the dome album' in the early 90's..

Diezzle Don & Tha Govna

Here's an early track from Newark's own Diezzle Don and The Govna. I took this one off a 1993 Stretch & Bobbito show. Not sure if this saw any kind of release on vinyl or LP. I've been trying to find out where it came from, so if anyone knows let me know. Enjoy..

Rahzel & Powerrule Freestyles Hot 97 1998

Stretch and Bobbito would often double/triple book different artists on the same night. If they shared the same air time, you might hear an odd combination of MC's but it usually worked out well. This session from 'Boogie and the Barber' on June 14, 1998 features Rahzel of the Roots and Powerule.

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..

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...

Halftime Show 11th Anniversary

This was posted on UGHH, along with many other Halftime shows you can find in their archives... wanted to run it by here for those who might have missed it. This is the Halftime Show 11 year anniversary on March 4, 2009.

DJ Eclipse sets it off with some unreleased treats, DJ A-Trak cuts up some Hip Hop, DJ JS-1 kills it with non-stop OG breaks, DJ Premier takes you on a journey through some of his production, Tony Touch gives you some B-boy breaks, and finally Evil Dee and Mr. Walt jump on the tables for the last 15 minutes with some old/new hip hop. A legendary line-up of DJ's and a nice variety of music...

Stretch & Bobbito B-Side

The B-Side was a show Stretch, & Bobbito had on Hot 97 in 1996, that ran quadra-monthly. Episodes include guests ATCQ and Consequence promoting the 'Beats Rhymes and Life' Lp, Jeru the Damaja and DJ Premier promiting the 'Wrath of the Math' Lp, and Redman promoting the 'Muddy Waters' Lp.

Here are all 3 B-Side episodes.
The first is one I found online (peace to the original uploader)

The B Side (featuring Redman)

words from Bobbito on the B-Side...

"The B-side show, if I remember correctly, only happened these three times. It was sort of an experiment to get me and Stretch on more prime time, during Angie's weekday evening slot. It went over well with everyone. It was kind of like a showcase of anticipated albums from artists who were known from our corner of the world. I think that'd be like 8pm to 9pm? I don't really remember (the time slot). Our Sunday, 'Boogie and the Barber', show on hot was from 11pm to 1am.

Another thing you may want to search for is me and Stretch doing the subbing for Ed Lover and Dr. Dre's morning show on January 1, 1997. I can't remember why they couldn't do it, but people were absolutely buggin' to hear us that early (started at 5am i think until 8am) on prime time. We were just ourselves, acting stupid, snapping, all that. I can't remember, but I don't think stretch dj'ed, the station just played their regular playlist and we talked a lot. I don't have a recording though . . ."
