The Mix Master Mike in question, and the DJ droppin skills for this notable tape, is Philly icon and local legend Mike Maserati [According to recent correspondence from Maserati, the former mayor ‘Nutter stole my name’]. As we initially thought this was Lady B and the ex-mayor was the one on the wheels, this is the kinda correction we enjoy here, cos we wanna be ‘teaching history, filled with straight up facts, no mystery’. Huge shouts and big respect to Mike and Mimi Brown who is on the mic.
Regrettably, there are a few pauses in the recording, but there’s almost an hour of truly classic Rap, and a few rare ones too. With the numerous pauses, the likelihood is that some of the recording is from Mimi [who hosted the Rap Digest] on WDAS [105.3] as well as Lady B on WUSL [98.9]. Regardless, indulge yourself and bask in the b-boy soundtrack to 1988!
