Before Sirius Satellite Radio, New York Reality Check 101, Crooklyn Cuts Mixtape… Around the time of Hard To Earn, DJ Premier was mixing in live on WBLS. He would air every friday nights playing the dopest records that were out as well as dropping exclusives.
Recently, a Japanese website started selling cd-r’s of original recordings of the show ranging from a collection of 6 volumes. The quality of the shows were top notch and rips started to hit up the T.R.O.Y. forums. Five of the volumes were ripped by serch4beatz while the only one missing came out to be vol.1. Two Months after the original post, T.R.O.Y. member Illest came through and uploaded vol.1.
Below you find all the tracks that DJ Premier mixed during the first session. The date is 3/04/1994.
