Mr Magic & Mister Cee – Classic Showcase HOT97 – Late 1997

This is a Classic Showcase tape with Big Daddy Kanes’ DJ, and Mr Magic. You only need to look at the tracklist to know this is a quality show. It’s loose, it’s tight, there aint too many doubles, Cee is TIGHT on the mix, and with advertising like The Tunnel opener [Free champagne] an’ the Mic Geronimo LP ads voiced by Angie Martinez, as well as some shitty reception, it all adds to the late 90s authenticity LOL !

Seriously, how many Rap radio show DJs rocked Prince & MC Lyte backtoback?

DJ Premier & Fatman Scoop [HOT97 Mixmasters Weekend] – 24 November 1995

Today in 1995, New York witnessed DJ Premier broadcasting live as part of an all-star line-up on a classic HOT97 Mixmasters Weekend.

As well as undertaking his first mic control duties on-air, Primo got seriously busy on the decks with some truly epic productions of his own as well as some monster indy tunes from the period. For those that heard it live on air, consider those of us in the UK that had to wait for booty copies like the one below. For those that remember, Underground Flavas out of West London had a habit of cutting corners on the cost of design and quality, just look at the J-Card. Forgetfully, they even dropped mixtapes with only one side of music on em.

Fatman Scoop was in charge of the presentation, all 326 ‘soaking wet’ pounds of him. Check the TL on the SC page.
