Radio 1 Rap Show 08.02.03
with Rah Digga & Phi Life Cipher

This one starts off with In Da Club and the first of many remixes that would follow. I still love the Budden/Paul Cain/Fab version that's played here (and would appreciate a CDQ if anyone can hook that up) but Bubba Sparxxx 'In The Mud' wasn't bad either I guess. This show must also be one of the first times Dipset Anthem gets a spin so that's a Big Moment for The Culture right here.
Rah Digga is the studio followed by Phi Life Cipher right at the end and Tim goes in the archives and airs the legendary Wu Tang appearance from '97 where Meth, ODB and RZA take over the phones, which you've probably heard before but is some straight radio gold every time.

Mothership Connection on 2SER, Sydney (1998)

Straight late 90s jiggy free underground flavours on this show, broadcast on community station 2SER in Sydney, Australia. If  anyone has any more info on these hit us up.

Tobes in Argentina provided the tapes, I ripped them in the UK and then passed them over to The Hip Hop Radio Archive in the US where you can stream or download them. F an international friendly, we're fully World Cup knockout stages over here.

DJ Rectangle - The Six Million Dollar Hand (2004)

Found this Rectangle CD that I haven't posted yet. It's from 2004 so we're on the fringes of classic territory and there's definitely some bullshit on here but Rec stitches it together so nicely and switches it up so often that you don't really have time to get too annoyed by anything. If you're in the UK the sun's out and it's a 3 day weekend so an appropriate opportunity to throw this on may well present itself at some point.

Radio 1 Rap Show 06.01.96

I posted the Top 10 at 10 part of this years ago but it was only at 128kbps so here's the full 90 mins of that tape in better quality. Mobb Deep were in between albums and Prodigy still managed to be on 3 songs in the Top 10. Salaam Remi was on fire around that time too, with production on the Greg Nice and Fugees tracks (one an obscure indie 12", the other the lead single for The Score) and his dope remix of Fast Life for G Rap and Nas. Liking that Clark Kent remix of The Natural too...


Supernatural & KRS One - WKCR freestyle
Mic Geronimo - The Natural (Clark Kent's Ghetto mix)
Special Ed - Freaky Flow (DJ Premier remix)
Greg Nice - Set It Off
GZA ft Inspectah Deck - Cold World
LL Cool J ft Keith Murray, Prodigy, Fat Joe & Foxy Brown - I Shot Ya (remix)
Goodie Mob - Cell Therapy
Big Noyd ft Prodigy - Recognize And Realize
Jamal - Fades Em All (Pete Rock remix)
Kool G Rap ft Nas - Fast Life (Norfside remix)
Das EFX & Mobb Deep - Microphone Master (remix)
Busta Rhymes - Everything Remains Raw
Fugees - Fugee La
Akinyele & Sadat X - Loud Hangover

Don't have time for much more than ripping the rest of these Westwood tapes at the moment but I'll see what else I can dig up.
