This is some truly rare and classic footage. Un-earthed by DJ Iran from his storage unit, this is a recording of HARD TO THE LEFT Rap Party, which was an Elektra Records Artist Showcase at Kilimanjaro’s in Long Island, NY. This went down in October of 1990.
In the video above watch an unedited clip of Funkmaster Flex, Lyor Cohen, De La Soul, Ali Shaheed, Pete Rock & CL Smooth, Dante Ross, DJ Clark Kent, Dres, Zev Luv X aka MF DOOM (without the mask), etc. giving shout outs to Video Music Box.
