Capital Rap Show

June 10, 1994
(95.8 FM)
London, England, UK

Ed O.G. from Boston and legends of Rap radio, the Awesome 2 from NY join Westwood in the studio.

As well as Ed O.G. in interview with Tim, Special K [& Teddy Tedd] of the Awesome 2 discuss their history, club-hopping and playing Latin Quarters & Danceteria. They talk about producing EPMD's "It’s My Thing" along with them, while Tim for some reason mentions Sleeping Dog Records before dropping 2 Pacs’ name like a hot potato. The Awesome 2 have some brought some special ‘dubby-dub’ blends with them, so Tim plays a few, they are DJ Fashion [of the Zulu Nation] dubplates. NB: The Cold Crush/KRS blend is truly outta here, do NOT miss!

In the weekly Source Magazine update, Jay the Sultan [Shecky Green] offers further indication that these updates were the listeners Internet back in the mid-90s. During the phone report he speaks on [then 24 year old] Lisa Left Eye Lopes’ fiery attitude 2 nights previous in Atlanta.  He informs the listeners that authorities had ‘issued a warrant for her arrest’ and that she was up on charges of suspected ‘arson and criminal damage’ of her Superbowl champion boyfriends’ $860,000 home, and vehicles at the property. Allegedly, they’d had an argument after Lisa discovered her lover had bought a grip of sneakers and not picked up any for her. After she set fire to the kicks in a bath, the fire got outta control and couldn’t be contained.

After the report, Westwood drops 5 tracks from what sounds like a pre-recorded mix/or maybe even a section from one of the Awesome 2’s shows. 

Westwood not only plays classics during this show, he mistakenly refers to Craig as Greg Mack and the guests on the Shyheim posse cut, as Rubber Banks and [Pop Da Brown Hornet as] Pop Da Brown Homer.

AHOOOOOOOOGA props to Special K & Teddy Tedd.
