Raw Deal

October 22, 1992
WPRB (103.3 FM)
Princeton, NJ, USA (Princeton University)

This show features G and DJ Kam, who’s back after a mysterious “fall” (Jay-Ski subbed for him the previous week). This is one of the rare unlabeled tapes that was easy to identify since G referred to a show “this coming Saturday October 24th”. The show featured a premiere of Ice Cube’s “Wicked” a week before the single hit stores and a bunch of great remixes. Super solid show all around and I didn’t cut anything from the show except ads. Blvd. Mosse rolls through for an interview. Lots of promotion for Mahorn’s upcoming show featuring Brothers Uv da Blackmarket and Mobb Deep for a “young adults night.”

Da Lench Mob were supposedly on their way to the studio, so there is likely more to this show on another unlabeled tape.
