HTIKMM: Stretch & Bobbito with Primo on Hot 97

Home Taping Is Killing Music Month Presents… Stretch Armstong & Bobbito on Hot 97 with DJ Premier

Stretch & Primo

Since I’m on a Primo roll of one whole day, I thought I’d continue the theme…

Here’s Primo on the wheels as a guest of Stretch Armstrong & Bobbito on their Hot 97 show – I’m so anal I even have a date for this one – August 31, 1997. Ain’t it funny how sound quality wasn’t a factor ‘back in the days’ ™… listening to hissy tapes and scratchy vinyl was part of the game then, as opposed to now when we all want 320k quality mp3s to play on our Ipods and Itunes and Ithings. Kids nowadays… I remember when all this was trees…

Anyway, Primo drops a gang of shit on here that I don’t remember from anywhere else – some Common and Mos Def joints that aren’t familiar at all, as well as a ton of his other own produced stuff – Bumpy Knuckles, DITC, Brand Nubian, Rakim and other fun stuff. In addition, and in direct contradiction to my previous post, Primo’s skills are on point here, with his usual sloppiness replaced by efficient and clinically precise mixing and scratching. Tremendous.

  2. 9:38 is a song from 1997 called Under Da Sun by I-Power. My name is Melodious Funk aka Mo Fonk and I produced that beat back in December of 1995. We pressed up the 12″ in March of 1997. I got like 3 left. I’m thinking about re-releasing it. The be side is one of my favorite beats. Its caled the Madness. Check it out if you get a chance. One.
