Shabaam Sahdeeq

I could have sworn Shabaam Sadheeq was representing Teaneck, NJ, or Jersey City, but the internet says Brooklyn. I was listening to a Stretch show from 1997 and this track came up. I did a little research to see this wasn't on any of the Rawkus 12"s or any of his 12"s that came out around this time. Probably due to sample clearance? I liked the flip of Bobby Hutcherson's 'Montara,' and I'm thinking Nick Wiz did the beat on this, because it sounds like his drum kit. If anyone knows if this was white labeled, or anything else about it, please let me know. I'm calling it 'On a Mission,' because I don't know the title.

Stretch & Bobbito 8-31-1995

Shout to DJ Eclipse, posting this treat. DJ Riz puts down a two hour set of treats, Bobbito runs through the demo corner, and then Eclipse plays the beats for the freestyle session featuring Fat Joe, Big Pun, Armageddon, Keith Nut, and Rated R. I remember hearing this one live and having my tape run out halfway through the freestyles. Still, it was one of the most memorable shows. As Bobbito has said, this was the first time anyone heard Big Pun outside of the Terror Squad, his first radio appearance. He would have been 44 today, R.I.P. Big Pun.
