Live Convention

When buying one of these records in a local record store, the clerk commented “yeah man, Cold Crush bit all of their stuff from Jurassic 5…”. He was kidding of course, but these recordings did in fact represent a time when the 3 minute rule didn’t apply to rap yet. These were still the days when the MC was expected to be more of an accessory to a DJ, rather than a stand alone performer, so, expect to hear some lengthy demonstrations of MCing.

Not too sure where these were recorded , but, you will hear the likes of Theodore Cold Crush Brothers, Busy B Starski, Fantastic Freaks (pretty much half of the cast of Wild Style.)

Enjoy
