On March 20th, I had the pleasure of being a guest on WKCR 89.9 FM’s OffBeat Show. For those not familiar, WKCR is Columbia University’s radio station in New York City. It’s best known for being the former home of Stretch & Bobbito’s legendary hip-hop radio show.
Resident host Zach “Storm” Wyche played both volumes of the Trapped in the 90’s series along with some new beats. During the set, I was lucky enough to get interviewed for my first time live on the radio. Some great questions came up like what equipment I use, where I get my records, sampling, and the Searching for Joey Badass video.
In addition, I did a live set of about 50 drum breaks – some well known, others from my secret stash. I will warn you, the mix is a little sloppy. The turntables had rubber slip mats, needles that I couldn’t scratch on, and the last time I DJ’d live was probably 15 years ago. Either way I made it work, so check it out!
Thanks again to Zach, Columbia University, and WKCR (especially for the bottles of water and powdered doughnuts. No, that’s not slang for coke, they literally bought me powdered doughnuts and they were awesome haha). Make sure to follow the Offbeat show on Twitter – @WKCRHipHop.
