Here’s Season 1, Episode 17 of 90’s popular police drama New York Undercover. Starring Malik Yoba as Det. J.C. Williams & Michael DeLorenzo as Det. Eddie Torres, NYU is notable for being the first police drama on American television to feature two people of color in the starring roles. Det. Torres Â and Williams are two undercover detectives in New York City’s 4th Precinct who are assigned to investigate various crimes and gang-related cases. The program is also known for its hip-hop oriented targeted audience as it normally would feature a hip-hop soundtrack.
Aired on February 9, 1995, “You Get No Respect” focuses on the murder of a rapper killed at his group’s show, when after all, his partner might be behind the murder. This episode is mainly known for its major hip-hop appearances of Sticky Fingaz, Treach, Notorious Big, MC Lyte, Yo-Yo, Doctor Dre & Ed Lover. Notorious Big performs his 1994 hit “Juicy” at the end of the episode. The episode also features a new unheard track from Sticky Fingaz(as Khalil) titled “You Get No Respect”. It’s played throughout the episode but it hasn’t been released anywhere else. I’d like to hear a full version at it sounds like a track that could have been on “All We Got Is Us”. I love the part when when Sticky is rhyming!
