Video: 15 Years of The Halftime Show

For 15 years The Halftime Show with DJ Eclipse and DJ Riz on WNYU’s 89.1 FM has been holding down underground Rap radio in NYC and filling the void left by The Stretch Armstrong & Bobbito Show. Tonight they will celebrate a decade and a half on the air with a special anniversary event at Le Poisson Rouge that will feature sets from Stretch, DJ Premier and others. As a tribute to the show, they put together this retrospective detailing the early days of The Halftime show with interviews from Eclipse, Riz and Stretch and freestyle footage of Rhymefest (spitting the original “Jesus Walks”), Immortal Technique, Sean Price, Lord Tariq and Akinyele.

Hit the jump for the flyer for tonight’s show.

  2. London bloke Says:

    More wack nobody rappers on this than an eskay post (II) on Nahright

  3. London bloke Says:

    Irrespective of payola claims, nobody can deny eskay supports NY

    No matter how bad they are, he still posts (II) their music

    Plus most of them can’t be paying for the Big Sean payola package, how much disposable income can Grafh really have in 2013

    the eyelashes
    like umbrellas
    when it rains from the heart
    & the tissue
    is like an angel
    kissin you in the dark
    you go from blind sight to hindsight

    > nigga was feverish.

    jay electricity
    pbs mysteries
    in a lofty place
    tanglin with satan over history
    you can’t say shit to me
    al-hamduli’LLAH
    strictly by faith
    that we made it this far

    ^ he could very well be sending shots at his own misses.

  8. cOLD Says:

    lofty place = there mansion like palace.

    satan = rothchilds name is synonymous with the illuminati and thus satanism.

    Jay Elec is a big history buff, and his past work makes no qualms about who and what these wealthy families are responsible for.

    cOLD…..

    despite what members of the black diaspora in your area may have indoctrinated you with…white folks are not the devil. no human is as crafty in destruction & divisiveness as satan.

    consider this:
