Podcast – 1 – A Tribute to Tony D

May 1, 2014 – 2:36 am

ton2[1] The debut episode of the Normal Bias podcast pays tribute to hip-hop producer, MC, and DJ Tony D who died in a car accident five years ago. In addition to classic and unreleased tracks recorded by Tone and beats that go for miles, I welcome some of the many talented artists and people that worked with Tone over the years. YZ, BeFyne, Mr. Law, Shawn Lov, G from WPRB, and Dre spend almost two hours sharing their memories of Tony and paying tribute to the man. King Shameek of Twin Hype and DJ Jay-Ski of the Skratch Makaniks also contribute stories about their time with Tone.

Track listing:

  • YZ: “Mixel Plic (Remix) (feat. Tony D and BeFyne)” (1991)
  • Crusaders for Real Hip-Hop: “That’s How It Is” (1992)
  • BeFyne: “Lose ‘Em (feat. Tony D)” (1992)
  • Baby Chill: “Wise to be a Wiseguy (feat. Tony D and BeFyne)” (unreleased, early 90s)
  • Tony D: “Check the Elevation” (1991)
  • Tony D & Prince Rakeem (RZA) Thursday Night Live session (1991/92)
  • Almighty & KD Ranks: “Trenton Where We Live (feat. Tony D)” (1991)
  • 7 Immortals (Feed, Don Blaq, Mo Flex, Shawn Lov, BeFyne, Courageous Chief, Low Key, and Fatha Ramzee; prod. Custodian of Records): “Thursday Night Live” (2012)
  • … and a buncha’ beats…
