DJ Aladdin & DJ Scratch – Da Shizznit L.A. Style

Tuesday, June 29th, 2010

This is dope and it might be interesting to most of you, if you haven’t heard it yet.

I don’t know which year exactly this came out, eventhough many info on the internet says 93, i am not so sure, cause in this mix is included one of Mackadelics track, Power Of A Playa, which came out in 96, but anyway, that is not so much important right now.

To celebrate The Halftime Show’s 12th Anniversary, DJ Eclipse had a crazy lineup of mc’s rhyming in the booth over beats from Krysis, DJ Babu, & DJ Scratch. MC’s included legendary Flavor Unit member Chill Rob G, Sadat X, Rhymefest, Torae, Skyzoo, Shabaam Sahdeeq, Tiye Phoenix, Smiley The Ghetto Child, Chace Infinite, Illa Ghee and many more. They also had DJ breaks with the legendary X-Men (aka The X-Ecutioners). For the people who were tuning in live, you were able to see the whole show on video being broadcasted through Ustream.. unfortunately they weren’t able to record it. They just posted the live recording from the radio a couple hours ago. Enjoy!

R.I.P. Apache

Friday, January 22nd, 2010

Flavor Unit emcee Apache, born Anthony Teaks, passed away after a protracted illness. Shakim Compere, CEO and Co-Founder of Flavor Unit Records, remembered Apache, “Without Apache there would have been no Queen Latifah, no Naughty By Nature, no Chill Rob G., no anything” Compere told “Apache was the string that tied all of Flavor Unit together. Without Apache none of this would be.”

MC Shan is Livin’ Large

Saturday, December 6th, 2008

Almost everyone from the Juice Crew switched label in the early 90’s. MC Shan went to Livin’ Large Records just like Roxanne Shante. He first released “Hip Hop Roughneck” with the b-side “Watchin’ My Style” in 1993. I really liked the instrumental that they used for it; it’s probably going to make your head nod. Next he released his second single “Penile Reunion“; a posse cut with Kool G Rap, Neek the Exotic, Diesel, and Snow. It was produced by Kool G Rap and The Large Professor. The B-side “Don’t Call It a Comeback” is produced by Mister Cee and it contains scratches by DJ Scratch.

I also have the CD Single for both of these releases so it’s probably the best quality you will ever get them in.
