About the show

Playing tracks by

Kool G Rap, Pete Rock and CL Smooth, Redman, Nine, Gangstarr and more.

Yes, we know ... you have heard these tracks before, but that doesn't mean they are not pure dope on plastic. We all evolved, know whats IN and we like dubspeppy and bling bling ish, but sometimes it's good to remember where all this sh*t comes from and why we started keeping these Sony tapes wrote with Rotrings 0.5 in that Jordan V's box.

DVIII brilliantly coined the descriptive term "trompetilla of 94" to define those years that some have called Golden Era of Hip Hop, these classic bangers produced by RZA and Premier or Pete Rock and Prince Paul or Large Pro that never fail and you make you scream POU POU POU and go gunfingering and still sound jazzy and ruckus , a filtered bass and a trumpet with delay, as a good rap song has to sound.

Push play, go back in time and remembers a time when you clould match your bagpack with a New Era...
