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.

“I forward forward high punch and spit the flame like lui kang burnin your membranes when the wind change” red man and biggie ripped this song to shreds. this is when i loved redman. but every one rips this track to be honest and there has never been much publicity for this track since the movie was a dud.from the 1995 soundtrack “The panther”. It features the Notorious BIG, Coolio, Doodlebug (From the digable planets), Big Mike (From the Geto Boys), Buckshot (From Black moon/Boot camp clik), Redman, Ill al skratch, Rockness (from Heltah Skeltah/Boot camp clik), Bone thugs n harmony, Busta Rhymes, 5th ward and Jamal
