DJ Phat Phillie:

Back in 2008., my brother Bizzo Bodega and myself invited almighty PETE ROCK to come and represent at one of our parties in Zagreb, Croatia. This is the Blackout Rap Show tape from Sept 2nd 2008. a few days before Pete came to town and the show was fully dedicated to P.R. Enjoy all 3 parts of the show, we go deep and play a lotta gemz from Pete’s incredible discography. Pete even phones in at some point thru out the show, but seems a little off lol like he was doing the last minute shopping before jumping on the flight to Croatia.

Check out the photo gallery here.

 Cassette Culture with Stretch Armstrong

Welcome to Cassette Culture, a column devoted to the content and context of audio cassette tapes.

First, let me introduce myself. I’m a born-and-raised New Yorker who fell in love with the sounds of the city at a young age. I went from The Beatles, Elton John and Fleetwood Mac to Queen, The Police, The Clash and Talking Heads to Chic, Stevie Wonder and Donna Summer to Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five, Black Uhuru, Kurtis Blow and Run-DMC and finally to the vast world of underground music, 12-inch vinyl and DJing.

DJ Eclipse:

Today (September 19th) marks 5 years since Roc Raida has passed away. It’s still fresh on my mind as if it was yesterday. I decided to dig into my files and pull some audio from Premier and I’s monthly party at APT where we saluted Raida. This was from September 21, 2009 on our Roc Raida tribute night. All proceeds from that night went straight to Raida’s family. It was such a sad loss, but such an incredible night of friends, family and industry insiders who came to pay their respects and celebrate the life and accomplishments that Raida left behind.

49 best rap albums of 94 nas illmatic The 50 Best Rap Albums Of 1994

What’s the greatest year in hip-hop history? ’88, the year of Public Enemy, Big Daddy Kane, and Boogie Down Productions? ’96, when ATLiens, Ironman, All Eyez On Me, and Reasonable Doubt dropped? What about 1994?

Things were in a state of healthy flux in ’94. Death Row was in full effect with Dre and Snoop’s classic debuts at their back while East Coast kingpins of the late 80’s gave way to a web of new groups like EPMD, Brand Nubian and A Tribe Called Quest. Rap-A-Lot was tightening their grip on the Southern market while acts like Crucial Conflict and Daytona Family began popping up from the Midwest. The hip-hop crescent was fertile with the changing of the tides.

So fertile, in fact, that we could easily double this list and still enjoy every album on it. From Common to Gang Starr, Bone Thugs to UGK, Spice 1 to Biggie Smalls, these are the 50 best rap albums of 1994.

Check out the list HERE.
