Straight from the borough of Brookyln, here is a look at key members of the Boot Camp Click collective who would eventually rise to form their own unique identities and career. Ruck, Rock, Tek, Steele and DJ Evil Dee take a break for an interview during recording studio sessions for their mid 90’s hip hop classics, Heltah Skeltah’s Nocturnal and Smif ‘N Wessun’s Dah Shinin’.
This is one studio session you should witness from a group of individuals who brought their own vibe of sound in using the raw elements of hip hop, which is very evident in listening to some of the earliest BCC albums. Check out Evil Dee at the control board and SP1200 while working with an engineer at D&D Studios on Smif N Wessun’s Stand Strong.
