The Tunnel? You already know how that spot used to go down on Sunday nights. That was the house Flex built. I remember one night King Sun and I left Hot 97 after Sun performed on the Furious Five show that used to come on after Street Soldiers at 10pm. Sun,me and a few of my friends went to the Tunnel right after. The line used to be bananas outside. This is when Wu just came out and Ol' Dirty was out front wilding out. LL was there, Smooth B, Busta Rhymes etc. To get in the Tunnel you had to take off your boots or sneakers, empty your pocket and the bouncer used to look in your mouth for razors. Females had their weaves violated by female bouncers looking for razors in their tracks! lol That's how crazy it used to be in there. Sun had a little issue with Busta over some 5% business. As soon as we walk in we see Busta who was wearing the same black and white coat he had on in the Who Haa video, talking to a few females. Sun immediately walks up to him EXCUSES the girls and starts talking to Busta. LOL. They work out whatever the issue was and everything is cool. During the night we split up in the spot and me and my friends were upstairs in the lounge area over looking the main bar and dance floor. Sun was downstairs and that dude is so tall we could see him from upstairs. All of a sudden Sun motions for us to come down. When I get down he tells me " We gotta bounce . I got beef in here with LES" I said " The producer cat??" He says " Nahh the Lower East Side!" As soon as he says that I see cats starting to make their way towards us. Sun says " walk ahead of me and get the car if anything I can hold it down! He didn't have to tell me twice.lol Luckily their were wild cops outside and when we got out we were all able to walk to the car and the cats that were following Sun couldn't make a move. Shit was crazy but a good memory. Shouts to Sun Doolah! Enjoy

S&S SIDE A
CRAIG G SIDE B
S&;S is just as known for his screaming as he is for his classic tapes. He is my favorite mixtape dj's of all time. Him and Craig G were probably the first Dj's to make the switch to cd's from tapes. Damm I miss the good ol days! RIP Harlem Music Hut and all the tape dealers on 125th.
This tape has been reissued numerous times. Biz Markie goes in with some R&B classics. Biz is nice on the 1 and 2's and if you have ever been to one of his parties you already know. Enjoy
THEORY OF OLD SCHOOL
This is a Pete Rock mix from 1992 I believe on WBLS. There are no drops and the tape was not labeled. I believe he is cutting on 3 turntables. Some classic Krs One, Naughty, Cypress Hill etc. Check it out.

The Kid at his best! Cutting up classic breakbeats. This was one of those tapes that spread through the city like wild fire. Kid Capri is my favorite party DJ and if you ever seen him live you will know why! Shouts to the Lords of Funk and the KBT Crew.....Thanks for the towel!! LOL
This is a rare classic that any hip hop head MUST have. This was broadcast live on WBLS on Mr.Magic's Rap Attack show in 1986. This is when Run Dmc was at their prime. Please comment on what you think about this one! RIP JAM MASTER JAY....
RUN DMC LIVE @ THE APOLLO 1986

This is cd is hot. Everything from Ludacris to Al Green to Led Zeppelin. Neil was Jay Z's tour DJ for the Heart of the City Tour. This is one to hear straight through. My man Angel put me up on two other Neil joints that I will post later. Peace
Not only is this man nasty on the mic , he is just as good on the wheels. This is a mixtape that was released exclusively in Japan. Finesse cuts up classic breakbeats from the Staxx record label and other classic joints. This is a must ad to the ipod ( just like everything else Im posting!) Big shout to Martini & Joparelli on the link.
Lord Finesse Staxx mixtape
Mr. Magic & Marley Marl were down the dial from Red & Chuck on WBLS 107.5. Magic is a legendary radio host who went on to form the Juice Crew. Marley was one hell of a DJ and later went on to host the show with Pete Rock. Another classic must have.
Mr. Magic's Rap Attack 1986
Chuck Chillout was on Friday nights in the 80's. Him and Red Alert had 98.7 on lock with the hip hop shows. Chuck is still doing his thing in NY and is rocking the Shadows (home of the fat broads! lol) My man Sha produced a record or two for him too. Sha did you ever get that?? LOL ENJOY
Chuck Chillout 98.7 Kiss 1986
This is a particularly good set from 8/12/89. Old dancehall joints and classic hip hop at its best. Red Alert used to have the city on smash on Saturday nights. Respect to the Propmaster!
Red Alert 98.7 1989
The Legendary Cold Crush Brohers live Christmas 1981 and the classic Wild Style performance from the Dixie that was featured in the movie Wild Style. This is something you need in your life!
Cold Crush Live Xmas 1981 & WildStyle performance
Basketball scene from Wildsty;e
All I can say about this is that it makes me miss the 80's. The Latin Rascals go in on this 50 minute mastermix with no commercials. Everything from the Fat Boys, Whodini, Run DMC etc. This is before Serato and Cd turntables with all the cool little features but if you listen to it it is way ahead of its time. Shouts to DeKalb Ave in the Bronx on this one! If you were out there in the 80's you know what I'm talking about!
98.7 Kiss FM Mastermix (no commercials)
If you never been to a Lovebug Starski party, this is the closest you will get. This is the orignal S&S. This was recorded live at Willies Lounge Uptown NY early 90's. Quality is not the best as it is from a cassette and there is dead space at the start of the mix.This is part one. I will post part 2 soon.

i hate to read which is why I think audio books rule. With the election 14 days away and Obama about to make history , I thought I would post this so you can get a better idea of who Obama is in his own words. Put this on your IPOD and take an hour a day to get familiar with our next President. BTW, the republicans have been taking excerpts from this book out of context and have been trying to paint a different picture of Obama. Just listen for yourself and VOTE!
Shout out to my man Mike aka MKAY. He and his brothers grew up in my building on 660 Nereid Ave in the Bronx.They wrote MKAY , CAVS & KEY. They got me into graf even though I sucked! lol If you remember the 70's and 80'S you remember how the trains used to be. That was HIP HOP along with breakdancing and rap music. The younger generation does not respect these 3 elements and its partially the older generations fault for nit keeping the values like we should have. I dedicate this post to the original b boy's who paved the way for the LIl Wayne's of today's world. Read the article on MK and check out a legendary writer from the Bronx...Cope 2. This is a classic video 2 parts
Another classic video! This one was shot down in Village on Great Jones St. It was raining like crazy that day. Diamond had an RV trailer that we were hanging out in during breaks in filming. Me , my man Sha who was a hype man and producer, his brother KX who was Diamonds DJ and Whiz who is featured on Stunts , Blunts and Hip Hop were in the trailer with Sadat X and Lord Jamar. This is around the time Diamond produced Punks Jump Up to Get Beat Down for the Nubians. We were all in the trailer smoking and listening to the Nubians album. This is the first time I heard Pass the Gat off that album and it really stood out and stuck in my head. That shit was hard! Fat Joe showed up and walked in the trailer. He pulled up in a 7 series BMW with this bad ass spanish chick. This will tell you Joe's mind state back in those days. He actually made the girl wait outside the RV next to a pay phone while he went inside the RV. Joe sat down and since he didn't smoke just nodded his head to the music. About 10 minutes later I start feeling that heat you feel on your face when someone is staring at you for a long time...lol. I look over and Joe is just ice grilling me like a motherfucker. Mind you dude was about to shoot my ass at the Fuck What ya Heard video shoot.LOL I'm thinking ' Shit you got on the boat like you wanted, whats the problem!!?" 5 more minutes have passed and he still staring at me with his upper lip all to one side. I tap my man Sha and say ' I don't think this dude likes me too much man!' Sha tells me that Joe is diabetic and his lip does that unvoluntarily.In my head I;m thinking ' Yeah aiight! This dude aint feeling me!' LOL Eventually he gets in a conversation with Diamond and like 30 minutes later we here a little knock on the door. The poor girl had been standing out in the pouring rain for like an hour and was knocking to see if he could pass her the keys to the car so she could wait in it. LMAO He barks on her for knocking and throws her an umbrella and says : Just wait there B!"
We leave to go back to filming in this downstairs club they rented for the shoot. Chris Lighty is there and I think Red Alert was there too. Fat Joe just got his deal with Relativity and Chris Lighty was managing him. I remember Joe telling Chris " Yo B! I'm ready to go platinum yo! I'm telling you Chris!' Chris told him that shit was not that easy and if he went gold he would be happy. Joe wasnt trying to hear that! Represent turned out to be a classic even though it did not go platinum. That same day Naughty by Nature was filming a scene for Hip Hop Hooray right around the corner. During a break we went over and checked it out. We got to get in a shot of the large crowd scene towards the end of the video. Man I miss the 90's man! Thank God for the memories Shout out to my man Sha Eaze and his brother DJ KX who you see riding in the old school red GTI in the video
This classic video was shot on the Hudson River on a boat called the Frying Pan. We had to take a little boat from the 79th street boat basin to the Frying Pan. The boat only held 4 people and made one trip every 30 minutes. On the first trip it was the old man driving the boat, Fat Joe , me and my man Chris. Fat Joe was mad nervous to get on the boat and kept saying " I aint gonna drown B! I ain't drowning!" Fat Joe never drank, at least back then but he threw back a 40oz of Old English to calm his nerves. lol We made it to the Frying Pan in one piece. The whole DITC was there along with Sadat X and Lord Jamar. The boat had this old mini helicopter that didnt work but was used as a prop for the video. During a break in filming, we were all outside on the deck next too the helicopter. I remember Fat Joe fucking with cats from the crew like BuckWild and Big L (rip). Joe was like " Yo Buck, are you really BUCKWILD?? You live like that B?". Then he turned to Big L " Yo L, you really the devils son B?. Back then Joe was nothing like he is now. He was not to be fucked with and was straight off the block. L and Buck just laughed it off knowing how Joe was. I remember Lord Finesse just laying in the cut reading the newspaper not even paying mind to what was going on. Joe was just being Joe.
Later on that day when I was about to leave, I went downstairs to say peace to everyone. Joe asked me " Yo the boats here?" I told him yeah but only 3 people could go on this trip and me, my man Chris and this chick from Def Jam were going to bounce. Joe was like ' Yo B WE OUT SON!" Joe tapped his man Pete and was like " We getting on the boat!" We all walked to the plank and the driver said " only 3 people can go out" I told Joe we were waiting for like 30 minutes already and we had to go. Joe said " Yo we out! I gotta bounce" His man Pete pulls out an unloaded Glock with red tape on the handle that they were using for the video and said " Yo Joe pass me that clip man! ' Joe said " Chill Pete" with a sneaky smirk on his face while passing him the clip. lol Seeing where this was going and realizing it was not worth it I said " Yo its not that serious..We will wait on the next boat" Of course the chick from Def Jam started mouthing off like " Thats fucked up!! We was here waiting!!! While ya'll acting like that!!' My man Chris just tapped her and said " They got a gun in their hand. let them go!' The old white boat driver looked like he just shit in his pants! LOL So Joe and his man Pete got on the boat and sailed away waving to us laughing. At the time we were feeling like suckers or whatever but I think we played are cards right. Besides the old man came back like in 15 minutes and took us back! Crazy day but one I will never forget.
