Westwood – Capital Rap Show – 19 August 1994

Scroll down to content

As we’re in the run up to the Carnival here in London, we’ve transferred the first of our Notting Hill Carnival themed tapes…

This one’s a pre-carnival gem from August 1994. No freestyles/ interviews or any exclusives, just Timmy playing segments of Ron G – Its On #2 [In enviably good quality] along with a bunch of bangin good music !

Listening to the Capital Rap Show allowed a lot of listeners to catch segments of mixtapes that would’ve gone unheard if it hadn’t been for Westwood, and this one of the many tapes that took peoples hair-lines back an inch or 3; Ron G feat Raekwon/ KRS/ OC & Biggie on an intro was heavy on the rewind for months. The Method Man ‘improv’ is listeners doing impressions of Meth to win Wu-Tang tickets in a competition prize, not a freestyle with a posh name. And in the Source Magazine update, Jon [Jay the Sultan] Shecter comes off with some interesting points in the Source update regarding regional sales reports and how Biggie ‘was NYs best hope to blow up nationally’ in 1994.
