This past Sunday on the “Rap Is Outta Control” show, Dj Eclipse does an excellent Dj Premier & Large Professor medley mix, in honor of both legendary Djs/Producers’ birthdays (Preemo’s & Xtra P’s have the same birthday: March 21). Peep out the dope mix below!
Congratulations to our good friend Dj Eclipse for celebrating another milestone, the Halftime Show 17 Year Anniversary.
“On Wednesday March 4, 2015 The Halftime Show celebrated it’s 17th anniversary of being on 89.1FM WNYU. The episode focused on past WNYU radio show hosts and DJs as well as other legendary NYC radio veterans. P Fine & Lyvio G who held the first Hip Hop show on WNYU in 1986 and Martin Moor & Mayhem who started on WNYU in 1993 along with The Awesome Two who joined WHBI in 1982 all recreated what it was like to do their radio shows when they first started. So sit back relax and listen to some good music and good stories about the early beginnings of these contributors to Hip Hop.”
Summer of 1997, A young Common Sense stopped by Fat Beats NYC and dropped a freestyle over a Gang Starr classic “You Know My Steez”. Peace to Preemo and R.I.P to Guru. Make sure you check out Preemo, along with Mr. Choc and Icy Ice this Sunday 8/10 at the Yost Theater in Santa Ana. This video is courtesy of our friend Dj Eclipse.

In honor of The Word Of Mouth 2014 Reunion Tour, we had to post this video up of Dilated Peoples & Chali 2na of Jurassic 5, courtesy of our good friend Dj Eclipse of Halftime Radio Show/La Coka Nostra fame. This was shot at Fat Beats NYC during the 1st Word Of Mouth tour in 1999.
This is what Dj Eclipse had to say about the clip:
“Since Dilated & Jurassic are back on tour together and hitting NYC this weekend I figured I would post this clip from the last time they were on tour together back in 1999. This footage is from a Dilated Peoples in-store at Fat Beats NYC on the day that they were doing their New York stop on the “Word Of Mouth” tour. August 11, 1999. The bill was Dilated Peoples, Jurassic 5, Beat Junkies and me, DJ Eclipse. The venue was Tramps, home to some of the illest shows NYC had seen in the 90s. The interesting thing about this show was that it was the last show Tramps had before it closed down. Some footage from that night to come.”
Tonight (August 3rd, 2014) is the last show of The Word Of Mouth 2014 Tour at the House Of Blues Boston. Doors open at 7pm, show starts at 8pm sharp! Don’t miss this show….it might be a long time that you’ll get to see this whole line-up perform & tour together….don’t sleep!
