Radio 1 Rap Show

August 1995
BBC Radio 1 (97-99 FM)
London, England, UK

The tracklist for this isn't entirely dissimilar to this one that I posted last month so it's fair to say it's from the week before or after. Decided to post it up anyway because Tim goes into the Capital Rap Show archives not once but twice and pulls out an old Cash Money & Marvelous session and a freestyle by Chill Rob G, Queen Latifah and the Jungle Brothers, both of which I assume are from the late 80s or possibly 1990 in the case of the latter (which I posted on its own years ago). There's also a few exclusives like the Rakim track and Mobb Deep's 'We About To Get Hectic' which didn't see the light of day until 2014. Another gem that never made it to the shelves is the track by Passion, which apparently was intended for a Def Squad project that got shelved, which is pretty nice if you like that mid 90s G-Funk vibe. Oh, and you get the lesser spotted friday night intro (before the ODB 'Its friday...yes its friday' became the standard).
