Stretch & Bobbito footage from November 29, 1990 [Post #1000]

Co-Founder of Zoo York Eli Morgan Gessner, has started upping some interesting clips on a YT channel.

The 1st one features a very early piece of footage from the WKCR days of the Stretch Armstrong & Bobbito Show feat the god Bonz Malone in the studio along with the late NYC skate-great Beasley in front of the mic stand.

The 2nd, from 1987 includes Bones Brigade clothing and the soundtrack from a ghetto-blaster playing a tape of Mr Magic dropping Juice Crew All-Stars/ World premiere of Nobody Beats the Biz [around the 5 minute mark]…

Shouts to Eli for his vision in capturing these candid and intimate moments…

DJ Stretch Armstrong Show featuring Bobbito the Barber on WKCR [Undaground Flavas] – 1995

Found another old Stretch and Bobb cassette to add to the ever-increasing list of shows from the WKCR days

The exquisitly and tastefully designed cover looks like it was drawn up by someone with plegic issues, or some stumped up Jeremy Beadle type, and I have no clue why the date was scribbled out either

Wyclef and Pras are in the studio as well as an MC by the name of Mischief [along with his mate, 10 men/ Tin-Man?]. It’s one of the booty tapes that was sold outta one of the many vinyl stores in London at the time, Handspun Records I think. It’s a decent selection of tunes, no demo exclsuives to talk of, and Wyclef waffles on a bit [durin the freestyle as well as the chat with Bobb and Bones] some things never change eh, and sadly, there’s no Krunchtime. If anyone knows the origins of, erm, Undaground Flavas outta downtown Hounslow, then let us know. Shouts to Krisch for helpin out with the tracks

DJ Stretch Armstrong Show featuring Bobbito the Barber on WKCR – 28 September 1995 [5th Anniversary show]

Stretch Armstrong Show featuring Bobbito the Barber on WKCR – 5th Anniversary Show segment –
September 28th, 1995 [Feat Kool G Rap & The Grim Reaper/ MF Grimm]

This Fat Beats distributed tape features a segment of the 5th Anniversary celebrations, this may have been heard before but I thought I’d throw this up as its a top tape; Top choice tracklisting, G Rap Freestyles, there are 2 random mixes that Stretch did himself, and ostensibly cos it just looks cool as fuck . The thin coloured card cover with the 2 authenticating super-rockin inked stamps is sick [I wonder how many they did of each of these tapes], and the upside down label on the cassette just adds to the whole thing. I think this was bought at Footwork. Nine-cinco sickness. Simple as. Big shouts to Serch and Verge over at Philaflava.

DJ Stretch Armstrong Show featuring Bobbito the Barber on WKCR – 26 October 1995 [presented by DJ Roc Raida]

Aside from the sibilance of Side B compared to Side A, it’s a pretty good quality tape. I didnt edit any of it, its exactly as the original Fat Beats cassette, but there are chops in there… not guilty. There’s no Stretch in the studio and pretty much all the vinyl is dropped by Roc Raida, naturally he tore it up…
