Blackout Top News

backlive

Ya’ll definitely gotta check this out. I was pleasantly surprised when I heard this few days ago. There’s also a video for this track I thought of postin’ but at one point volume goes down on the video and the audio is pretty raw, which ain’t that bad in this case.
Here’s a link in case you wanna check it out.

Backlive was an underground Hip Hop group from Miami, Florida in the mid 1990s. The group consisted of rappers G Boy, Dekwan and DJ / Producer Mellow D.

G Boy (Gil Green) also directed the video. 1000 MCs was G Boy’s thesis film project while attending NYU’s Tisch School Of The Arts. The video debuted the Amount Boyz dancers from Fiorello H. La Guardia high school.

This video aired on the last recorded episode of Yo! MTV Raps, BET’s Rap City, and The Box. 1000 MCs (Vinyl, 12″) was released on Backlive Records in 1996.

Produced by G Boy and Mellow D.

DJ Eclipse:

There’s no way I’m going to remember all of the Dirty Dozen, but shout out to Mecca and Bishop Lord who were part of the crew and held it down when Kevin Keith was not there. KK&TDD came on from 1am-2am right after The Awesome Two and this particular show was from the same night as my last A2 upload. Kev’s show was based more on guests and the newest music they could find which meant not really mixing records, but playing joints straight off cassettes.

Their guests on this episode were Da King & I (Izzy Ice & DJ Majesty) who also brought up Duo Die (Free & Sid) who now go by Duo Live (veterans of selling cds in front of Fat Beats). Funny enough, Izzy also shouts out Strictly Roots who were in the place obviously late from missing their spot on The Awesome Two’s show. Lots of dope joints from the live Hiero performance (6:12) to the commercials promoting “Mad Wednesdays” (22:17) and a Dooable Arts event (25:09) to Da King & I interview (26:34) and freestyle with Iz & Free (52:18).

Soul Supreme:

The original production by Joc Max and Spinna is really top notch so when approaching to remix this one I knew I can’t really compete, but I do hope I took it to a different place than the original.
