When this episode first aired I didn’t realize what a musical gem and part of history it would be. In that era there was a very high bar that you expected anyone who put on the moniker of MC to attain. Of course back then there was not such a thing as a Blackberry but even if there was no one would have used one. But certainly they had things known as paper and pencils and I didn’t see any of those either.

Also, if you have not copped that 80’s-90’s Hip Hop mix from DJ Phaze make sure you get it for your collection.
