Raw Deal – December 1992

February 3, 2010 – 10:18 pm
You're viewing an archived episode of Club Krush or Raw Deal that aired on WPRB. From May 2015 on, you should visit the Raw Deal Radio Archives for a more complete (and still growing) collection of shows, playlists, photos, drops, and more. Read more here...

Another unlabeled PRB gem today. This one comes from December 3rd or 10th, 1992 (they advertise an upcoming event called TalentFest 92 (brought to you by Up and Up Studios) and later on, there are holiday ads) and features a lot of goodness. The tape starts at about 11:30pm.

The studio was packed full of guests, including DJ Kam, Courageous Chief (aka “Horrendous Teeth” according to G), Awol, a boisterous Tony D (fresh from the studio having recording some new tracks with the Poor Righteous Teachers), the Hillbillies (“straight out of Muck Holly”… and seriously, does no one remember “Bottom of the Hamper Jam”?), and others.

Perhaps the main reason to check this one out is the primary in-studio guest: a 23-year-old Apache (RIP). “Gangsta Bitch” had just hit and the album (Apache Ain’t Shit) was on the way. It’s kind of strange to come across this particular unlabeled tape so shortly after Apache’s death.

In addition to the typical “what’s up with your album”-type questions, we find out important things like Apache’s favorite ice cream flavor and how he knows “this thing ain’t gonna last” because he doesn’t like “industry people.”

Side B features a great Thursday Night Live session with DJ Kam on the wheels:

  • Awol
  • Tony D (RIP)
  • Courageous Chief
  • Baby Chill (RIP)
  • Almighty Poppa S-Man (from the Dungeon Lords)
  • The Coup Man (?) (from the Dungeon Lords)
  • EP (from The Hillbillies) (sounds like the only one that comes off the top)
  • B-Struck (from The Hillbillies)
  • EP
  • Tony D

The show features music from Cutty Ranks, Show and AG, Positive K, Heather B, Main Source, Chubb Rock, Das EFX, Grand Puba, Ice Cube, Diamond D, and The Funk Family.

The show closes out with G discussing some upcoming extended-length shows. He also pimps one of the early episodes of Vibes and Vapors.

This is a great 90 minutes. I hope I come across the earlier part of the show at some point.
