Classic old radio freestyles.


Anyone that grew up in the 90’s in NYC who was into hip hop is well aware of the greatness that was “The stretch armstrong and bobbito show”. It was pretty much the best radio show ever. i used to say up til 4 am on school nights recording every second of it and then edit the tapes the next day. One of the highlights of the show would be when they would bring guests up there and have them kick rhymes. here’s a little collection of some of my favorite appearances from those tapes i made.
another show i used to record was the lesser known, but still very dope “underground railroad”. a few of these are from that show as well.

  1. Hey man, thanks for these! I remember one of my friends had a bootleg LP of some freestyles of the Stretch & Bobbito show, I still listen to them..
    Extra P & Mad Skillz, Big l, great stuff.. I’ve also got all the CD’s that came out with wake Up show freestyles, they’re pretty good too…

  2. Growing up in Boston it was the same way with 88.9 at night. A different DJ every night. Back in the day Thursday was the best with Fakts 1.
    Now every time I check it out it sounds like a regular commercial radio station with some old CNN or something thrown in randomly. Damn I miss the old 88.9, it put me on to SO much dope hip hop.
