So I was just on the radio in New York City again for DJ Eclipse's 9 Year Anniversary show on WNYU. In addition to Kool Bob Love showing up, to my surprise, my man MC Serch did as well. I have to get on a plane in a few minutes, so I'll keep ths brief for now, but let me just say that with these two chaps, it felt like it was 1990- the timing, the jokes, the fun. Safe to say, we could have taken up the whole show just talking smack, but there were beats and rhymes to be had kids!!! So we dipped, though I think Serch did spark the mic a bit. Thankfully, Bobbito did not. Incidentally, Serch was our guest on our second show ever on November 8, 1990! Additionally, Two Kings In A Cipher, fresh out of Howard University, showed up (do I have to explain?- just google it) and a live rhyme session ensued over old school break beats provided by yours truly (I wasn't even Stretch yet, haha!...DJ Adrian, Skinny Bonz, what's it gonna be???!!...whoa). Some very entertaining lines were spit and the energy was trumungous. The next day, as I sat at Def Jam, I played the tape over and over, just loud enough for anyone walking by to hear so I could explain that yes, finally, we were on the air. This tape will be posted...hmmm, just looked through the files...I take that back. I will have to find it, but I know it's here somewhere. In the meantime, get down with this- Serch a la 1986 doing his best Slick Rick/Dana Dane impression (but the flow is already impeccable). Shout to pioneer Tony D.

Aha! I found the freestyle (not the entire show unfortunately). I warned you about Bob's engineering prowess. This tape is mad distorted, the levels are bonkers, but it still sounds milk.
