Zoo York Mixtape

Growing up, Skateboarding and Hip-Hop went hand in hand.  From 95-98 you could catch a young Rev skating with a backpack full of mixtapes, paint markers, Krylon cans and a boombox/walkman damn near everyday.  So in 1998 when the Zoo York Mixtape hit the streets I was immediately blown away.  The film was extremely creative in the way it interwove east coast street skating with rare footage of some of Hip-Hops finest freestyling on WKCR’s 89.9 Stretch Armstrong & Bobbito radio show from the early 90’s. 

Looking back, this is the definition of nostalgia to people like me who skated and were fans of Hip-Hop.  Some highlights from the film include Ghostface spitting his verse from Criminology right off a loose sheet of paper, a very dope DJ Roc Raida set at the end, plus the always entertaining Harold Hunter.

Agent Orange – Cage

Cage released the underground classic Agent Orange produced by Necro back in 97.  Off the strength of that 12′ Cage eventually dropped Movies for the Blind(2002) on Eastern Conference, Hell’s Winter(2005) and earlier this month (7/7/09) Depart From Me on Definitive Jux.  Cage has undergone quite the evolution as an artist over the past decade as his newest effort Depart From Me sounds nothing like that of the old Cage.Download/Stream–>http://www.zshare.net/audio/632603652392aa6d/

Consequently Cage will be performing on the final leg of his Depart From Me tour this Friday on Brighton Ave in Allston at Harper’s Ferry with helpout from Yak Ballz and HHTT extended family members the Nite People.  If you are in the area this Friday make sure to check them out.

Bobbito.

Whether it’s Dj cucumber slice, make it happen, bag of tricks, the barber or kool rob love, Bobbito Garcia has been doing his thang for a hot minute now.  Along with DJ Stretch Armstrong on Columbia University’s WKCR 89.9FM they were voted best hip-hop radio show of all time by the source back when they were still credible in 98. 

Bobbito is also an accomplished ball player in his native New York, peep his Make it Happen the freestyle file
