On some real nerd stuff, I'm thinking Fly Ty's rapping debut was on Pumpkin's Here Comes that Beat! as part of the Profile All-Stars.

Pee-Wee Herman- Don't Drink and Drive, Duh!-

Red Alert also explains to Magic how they first met, which is a little fuzzy at first for Sir Juice. Awkarrrrd..? You be the judge!

Here's an Incredible video that I just recently caught on youtube. Looks like it was recently added, too. Thanks to Skratchworx for uploading this!
My personal highlight is the interview piece where Marley Marl is mentioning how Shante's Mom was making her do laundry during their attempts to record "Roxanne's Revenge."
Also we get some footage of a young Queen Latifah who is about to drop her debut record, "Princess of the Posse." What's up with 45 King's awkward hand gesture at 4:05? I can picture the people filming saying "act natural, like we're not even here."

I gotta of course say thank you to Eso for having me on the bill for both events, and definitely have to send a shout out to Beyonder for holding it down on the tables for my sets. He was killing it! At the end of Be Yourself Syndrome, Raheem and I just fell back and let him cut for mad long... he was in the zone. Which reminds me, I can't forget to give a shout out to Raheem Jamal and thank him for holding it down with me at all these shows. Do NOT sleep on Boombox / Project Move / Electric! It's truly a pleasure to be rocking on stage with him.

I was also thoroughly impressed that Beyonder didn't miss a beat when somebody handed him a beer on stage directly in the middle of hyping for Word Association with 7L & Esoteric. Anybody who knows that track has to know how important not missing a word is. Besides that, there were just a lot of great moments from each night. I think my personal highlight during my set was performing Losers and getting some great crown interaction / participation. There's nothing better than a good crowd. I'm regretting not filming this one (I seem to never use my video camera), but here's a couple more pictures...

09.06.1987- Grandmaster Flash Rap Attack Interview 1-
Although he is inquiring about the new album, you can tell Magic is hoping the original lineup of Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five will get back together. He in fact puts Flash on the spot when he straight up asks if they will, leading to a fun, albeit awkward interview. When all was said and done, I believe this would be Flash's last album before reuniting with the original Furious Five to release their On The Strength record.
I'm a fan of U Know What Time It Is, the track they're premiering during this interview. I especially like the Extended version Flash did for the single release.

I have to apologize if this post is written terribly. I'm sick as a dog and a little out of it.
