hiphopradioarchive.org / In the 1980s and 1990s, hip-hop radio was an essential element in the spread of hip-hop music. This collection aims to document the history of that spread in the US and worldwide on commercial stations and small college stations alike.

What do we have here then? Oh just some insanely early WKCR action from back when the show was in it's infant stages and Stretch was still going by the name of DJ Skinny Bones... (quality isn't great for the first few minutes but settles down by the time the music starts) Although tons of tapes from the duo's 8 year run have been posted online these sessions from 1990 have proved hard to come by. Even Stretch and Bob themselves have been asking for them, so this was quite a find.  Shout out to...

This classic Raw Deal episode comes shortly after the name transition from Club Krush. The Tommy Boy crew rolls massive into the studio including Naughty By Nature before their first album (as NBN) hit the shelves. Along with them is Prince Rakeem who, of course, later became Wu-Tang Clan's Rza. Interestingly, while he mentions his "Wu-Tang Slang style," the Wu-Tang crew had not yet been formed by that name. Instead, he was down with the DMD ("Dick 'Em Down") Posse. He...

This classic is a 34 year old recording of the Frankie Crocker breakfast show on WBLS!  Just like Grace Jones' The Apple Stretching, this is a beautiful snapshot of early morning early 80s New York, this time, from 1983. There may only be one Rap tune on this tape, but the recording is about much more than just one track, it's an illustration to younger generations, of how things used to be, as well as bein' a throwback to simpler times for the older listeners. In 2017, so many people are all...

RRR are extremely pleased to offer another previously unheard* Stretch & Bobbito Show from 1991. This is a full 90 minute tape, tweaked and remastered to make that compressed FM vibe, sound as bumpin as poss. Filled with treats from the time, all expertly mixed, blended and cut the f**k up by one of the finest DJs on the planet.

from http://www.normalbias.org/2015/02/20/raw-deal-april-30-1992/ This tape was labeled only “post-Rodney King,” which leads me to believe it aired the day after the April 29, 2002 “not guilty” verdict came in for the LAPD officers in their beating of Rodney King in March of the previous year.

This is not just another old school radio show. The operating room shows from Dr. Dre are very hard to find. And this one is imo very special. It contains an interview with KRS and Scott La Rock (6 months before his death) about the bridge wars, one of the important chapters of hip hop history. Scott is dissing Mr Magic, Shan and the Juice Crew and KRS is talking about The bridge and the reason to write 'the bridge is over'. This is like a time capsule back to 1987. - Dutch

The UndaGround Sound Mix Show broadcast on WXDU 88.7 out of Durham, NC. It was hosted by DJ Samps and Mike Nice and I believe David J also had some involvement with the show. Samps  is  still spinning on WXDU  every Friday night. He can also be found on Twitter  @deejaysamps . I remember communicating with Samps back in the day, as he was one of the few hip-hop DJs (college radio or otherwise) that was on the Internet back in ’94.

I was particularly pleased to find this treat on there though: Guru stops by the show to do a quick interview (just before Moment Of Truth came out) and then drops a few verses alongside a relatively unknown Eminem, before Defari steps up to the mic and then the Beatnuts get involved.

If you are from outside of the UK, this may be the first time youve heard of the UK Fresh 86 shows.

Following the Fresh Fest template on offer in the US from the previous year, and with only 16000 people witnessing what became a pivotal performance of iconic 80s artists, this has arguably become the largest and most important LIVE event in old school UK Hip Hop history, and was part of...

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......

Philadelphia’s Q102 was Power 99’s main competition during the early 90s in the urban contemporary market. While Power 99 tried to distance itself from hip-hop during that time with their infamous “No Rap Workday,” Q102 embraced hip-hop a little more fully. Don’t get me wrong – they still played their fair share of crappy R&B, but at least they had a show featuring Zulu the One Man Gang (now known as  Zxulu ) and  Jay-Ski , the Maestro of Funk. The show was titled “The Q102...

Always nice to hear a bit of Flex rocking on the radio, and being that it's from 1995 means the selection is suitably on point. - DJ Step One

I was surprised to come across this gem from Philly’s WDAS 105.3 FM in early 1989 (I’m guessing this is an episode of the “Rap Digest,” but I’m not 100% sure). I usually listened to DAS for classic soul, but when they did hip-hop, they did it well. Parrish Smith from EPMD calls in on a snowy winter day to discuss a show with Superlover Cee & Casanova Rud the following night in Philly, EPMD’s travels in that  country called Africa , and the upcoming album. They say to expect the...

On March 12, 1992–a week after doing an extended six-hour episode of Raw Deal that featured The Genius–G did a full 11 hour show (and then some since DJ X didn’t show up, either) starting at 1pm and going until midnight. Eazy’s car broke down in Philly, so G was running the show for the entire set. A Tribe Called Quest is supposed to roll into the studio, but it doesn’t seem to happen. Features lots of bugging out, particularly as the night nears an end and the studio is full.  Big...

The tracklist for this isn't entirely dissimilar to this one posted earlier so it's fair to say it's from the week before or after. Decided to post it up anyway because Tim goes into the Capital Rap Show archives not once but twice and pulls out an old Cash Money & Marvelous session and a freestyle by Chill Rob G, Queen Latifah and the Jungle Brothers, both of which I assume are from the late 80s or possibly 1990 in the case of the latter ( which I posted on its own years ago ). There's...
