Playing tracks by
DJ Scientist, Supa-Rap, January 20, Jocko, Ken C and more.
This is a mix I did in March 2008 for Rap History Berlin that solely contains rap tracks from 1983 with the topic being about “Money" or generally “Hard Times”. The mix was done live with 2 turntables, whereas some edits as well as the intro scratches have been added later. Here is the old info for the mix:
“DJ Scientist, creator of the RapHistory.net database, offers something real sweet for old school nerds as well as something that anyone can relate to: A 28-minute rap mix about money, social problems & hard times. 10 nice tracks solely out of the year 1983 to keep you grooving. Obscure lyrics like those of an M.C. called January 20 (a scarce record out of Ohio) and Mr. Supa-Rap’s “Bills” will definitely put a smile on your face. On the other hand, kid rapper Ken “C” complains about the school system, the Hit And Run crew (with a rare track featured on the German label Metrovynil) worries about getting jailed, and Run-D.M.C. provides us with their classic joint “Hard Times”.”
