From '93 'Til Infinty


What's sup kiddies? I had to dip out of town again, and the files that I wanted to post are too big to take with me and even attempt to post from a hotel room. Served up for your listening pleasure are parts 1 and 2 of a slamingo KCR episode from June 6th, 1993, a little more than 14 years ago. By this point in time, Black Moon had already come out as a new group to take seriously. I regret not having shown up to the video shoot for "Who Got The Props?", especially since they bigged up me (and Bob) at the end of the record. That bugged me out, for real- to hear my name on wax! (You laptop serato youngsters don't know how easy you have it.) Anyway, it would be cool to go to youtube on my new iphone and watch "Who Got The Props" with my cameo...but it just ain't so. So...on this show Black Moon was scheduled to come up, and they were bringing Smiff-M-Wessun who we hadn't known yet. But they left an indelible mark on my ears after ripping shit lovely that night. This had me amped. You'll also enjoy it when I threw on LL Cool J "Back Seat of My Jeep," probably to annoy Bobbito. There's another live appearance by a group named N-Tense of which I have no recollection. On Part 2, you hear a funny musical episode that was recorded in my bedroom on a hot summer day, featuring muddy, echoed-out vocals by Reef, Ghetto Communicator, Bonz Malone and Cage. 4, 5, 6 and Justice League was in effect, and the sound of the bong is real. And so is the static.

This was early enough in our radio "career" to actually worry about profanity. Haha- that's funny.

For some reason this is the show I remember the most. I mean even the order of the records,I knew what was comin up next every time.I remember the exact night I listened and what I was doing. I still to this day play that Jeru, Diamond and Fat Joe shit in that very same order in tribute to this episode. I had hundreds of tapes even from the skinny bones days, but like I said this to me is the epitome of a great night of Stretch and Bobbito.Keep posting these shows Stretch we need this shit especially with what is going on in "hip hop" now Peace. DJ C Reality (myndcrukz) hopefully you remember the night we paid your show a visit! Id like to hear that episode.
