Raw Deal

In 1987, after answering phones for a show on Princeton University’s WPRB, G connected with PRB club DJ Eazy M to form Club Krush (which later morphed into Raw Deal). Trenton-based MC/DJ/Producer Tony D joined the pair in the basement station and for the next six years brought the best in underground and local hip-hop to New Jersey and Philadelphia during a time period where Philadelphia radio was ignoring and even shunning hip-hop. The show broke groups like the Wu-Tang Clan and Poor Righteous Teachers and featured in-studio performances from everyone from YZ, BeFyne, Courageous Chief, and the Hillbillies to Tim Dog, Treach, and Rza during “Thursday Night Live” sessions. In the later years of the show, DJ Kam took Easy M’s place and DJ Jay-Ski made his radio premiere as a guest on Raw Deal.
