There's no playlist for this show, its a bit different from tha other shows I have done....more like a mixtape and more stream-of-consciousness.



In late 2009 legendary NYC radio DJ Stretch Armstrong played an entire two hour show of demo tapes he received during his time working on WKCR and Hot 97 FM and being one of NYC's most respected hip-hop DJs. His access to and knowledge of unreleased and demo music from hip-hop elites like Notorious B.I.G., Jay-Z, Organized Konfusion and others made for an incredible show; it inspired Son of Raw's DJ Sake One to complile some demos that he has collected and unearthed over tha years and do a similar show.

Tha sound quality on these recordings varies -- some are studio masters, others are dubs of dubs recorded from cassette tapes that were played hundreds of time (especially tha Wu-Tang demos -- background vocals done by MC HISSSSSSSSSSSsssss); together they present a unique view inside tha songs and music ideas that led to classic hip-hop records in tha 1980s and 1990s.
