57.  Starving Artists Crew Shout Outs

This was a special mix that I did for DJ Benny Ben’s Cultural Vibe show on WDBM Impact 89FM, Michigan State University college radio in East Lansing.  I spent a couple of weeks working on the mix for the radio show.

I decided to divide it up into three parts.  The first part was dedicated to the newer Rap music that I had been buying lately.  The second part was dedicated to the more obscure old school Rap stuff that I grew up on (but didn’t own back when I made my “Old School Hip Hop” and “Electro Kingdom” mixtapes).  The third part was a condensed version of an early 1990’s golden era Rap set that I had been rockin’ for years.

Here’s a picture of DJ Benny Ben in control:

Almost everyone associated with the Starving Artists Crew was at the station that night.  First, Benny Ben talked with the Starving Artists Crew about their album, “Up Pops The SAC“, and followed the interview with some live on-air freestyles before turning the show over to me.  For more on the Starving Artists Crew, check out my “Old School Hip Hop“, “SAC Lunch: Up Pops The Mega-Mix“, “SP – Movin’ Along“, and “Starving Artists Crew – Efil4cas” posts!

Pictured below are the main members of the Starving Artists Crew: SP (left), Brainstorm (middle), and IQ (right)

Starving Artists Crew DJ’s Tekay One (left) and Eduardo Scizzahandz (right) were also at the station that night.  Massey Love (a.k.a. Eduardo Scizzahandz) killed it with his freestyle!

SelfSays in the hizzy!

While the on-air light was on, it was quiet on the set.  But whenever we all got together, there was always a lot of joking and laughter going, so most of us had to hang out in the green room:

Shanrock (left) was also representin’ that night:
