My old mate Big Knucks [Slick Rick Thorne] put together a series of pause tapes for me durin the mid-90s, featuring bits takin from Westwood shows. I used to hang with Knucks and my old pal Boost Forsythe AKA The White Frank White AKA 2Bucks.
This one from July 95 features World Premieres from Tribe Called Quest and Rakim, dope cuts you can only listen to if ya sportin an Eastpak or a Jansport, underground one hit wonders produced by KRS, and an entire side full of freestyles from the NY Lugz Rap exchange, with Funkmaster Flex behind the 2s and 1s. All remastered, ‘waxed buffed and simonized’ with that crunchy megabass ! Shouts to Knuckles, wherever you is, get@me Dunny !
