Raw Deal

October 24, 1991
WPRB (103.3 FM)
Princeton, NJ, USA (Princeton University)

This classic episode features an amazing Thursday Night Live lineup with 2 Black 2 Strong MMG, Tim Dog, Tony D, BeFyne/B-Fine, Baby Chill, and Mr. Law.

Fine commented that “This joint is hilarious! The funniest shit was that Tim Dog kept fuckin’ [up] & blaming it on the DJ. Me and my brother Borne (aka Chill aka #9 RIP) were in the back rollin!!!”

Another lesson learned on this episode: cheesesteaks didn’t agree with Tim Dog’s digestive system.

Back in ’91, 16-year-old me labeled this tape “Hype!” and I’d have to say that 40-something-year-old me agrees.
