Funkmaster Flex - Radio 1 Rap Exchange (1995)

Flex links up with Westwood for the April '95 edition of the Rap Exchange. I rinsed this tape back in the day, mostly because for a while it was the only place I had the remix of 'Resurrection' which has pretty much solidified itself as my favourite beat of all time. Anyway, here's 50 mins (thanks to the lesser spotted 100 minute blank tape) of Funk Flex getting busy...


Lost Boyz 'Lifestyles Of The Rich And Shameless'
Tha Alkaholiks 'The Next Level'
Method Man ft Mary J Blige 'All I Need' remix
Jeru The Damaja 'The Frustrated Nigga'
Common Sense 'Resurrection' Extra P remix
Junior MAFIA ft Biggie 'Players Anthem'
Raekwon & Ghostface 'Can It Be All So Simple' remix
Biggie 'Who Shot Ya'
Mad Lion 'Own Destiny'
Doo Wop & The Bounce Squad 'Bounce Rock Skate Roll'
Funkmaster Flex ft Charlie Brown, ODB, Biz Markie & Kaotic Style 'Nuttin But Flava' remix

Shout out to Yams who hit me up yesterday requesting some 90s Flex tapes. Also shout to @jose3030 who came up on the source of the David Letterman drop that Flex uses. Skip to 5:50 (or watch the whole thing because Rosie Perez)

DJ Benny B - Early 80s Old School R&B Mix

Recent computer problems (yes, again) and insanely hot weather have meant I haven't posted for a while. Check Benny B's new mix of 80s classics whilst I prepare to resume normal service...

DJ Swing on Choice FM (1995)

45 minutes of the late DJ Swing of London's Boogie Bunch in the mix on Choice FM back in 1995. He kicks things off with some classic Juice Crew/Cold Chillin selection and then runs through some newer Hip Hop and R&B jams...


Swing sadly passed away in 2006. There's a good write up on him here.

Kay Slay & Cutmaster C - Get Down Or Lay Down (2002)

The Drama King teams with up with Cutmaster C for this one. Highlights include the Dipset freestyle and Big Noyd rapping over the Roc The Mic instrumental. Beef was in fashion back then so you also get KRS One dissing Nelly and Jermaine Dupri having a pop at Dre & Timbaland...
