DJ Jay-Ski: Back in the Day Weekend [1993] and Colby Colb: Radioactive [1993]

July 15, 2008 – 12:00 pm

Here’s a dope mix of 80s hip-hop (after a few 90s tunes) courtesy of Jay-Ski during the early days of his stint at Q102. Kurtis Blow, T La Rock, Mantronix, and Stetsasonic are represented and there’s an ill segment where Jay cuts up Cash Money’s scratches on “Ugly People Be Quiet.”

After Jay’s set, for some reason there are a couple of Arrested Development tracks and then a brief set from Colby Colb‘s “Radioactive” show on Power 99 (there are a few of cool drops by LL, Tupac, and Run-DMC worth checking). Colby Colb’s set features a random kiddie group (a la Kriss Kross and Da Youngsta’s) named The Chronic (sp?) with a really mediocre track called “Sometimes It Be’s Like That.”

This is side B of the DJ Ran mix that I posted yesterday.

  3. yo cuz, you just blew my mind. i used to fall asleep to radioactive back in the day when i was a young buck. i had so many tapes that i would play until they snapped (just like your header). i lost most of them and thought they would only be a memory. younger heads try to break my balls about the new stuff but it just don’t compare. especially the art of the party mixtape. thanks for keepin it alive! ra-ra-radio-active…
