Raw Deal

April 9, 1992
WPRB (103.3 FM)
Princeton, NJ, USA (Princeton University)

This one's from April 9, 1992. Eazy M's out and G holds it down. This episode pairs well with an earlier one from January 23rd, where Mike Elliot first discusses his upcoming book that's released the day after this episode.

The episode also features a demo from a kid-group from Trenton called Youth of Noble Birth (they apparently also have a track called "Living in the Projects," which is not in this first part of the show). Side B and C feature what may be DJ Jay-Ski's first appearance on Raw Deal. Kam steps up for a bit and then the Krown Rulers (!!) make a surprise appearance at the very end of the show.
