Big Pun & Fat Joe on The Stretch & Bobbito Show in 1995

Tuesday, November 10th, 2015


This right here is a clutch move on the part of DJ Eclipse. If you’ve seen the new Stretch and Bobbito documentary, you know there’s an amazing moment where the pair play a #veryrare Big Pun verse for Fat Joe. I cited that moment as a great example of Stretch and Bob’s legacy and influence in my post about the film, but it’s also a pretty amazing freestyle and a historic moment in NYC Rap radio history.

Well Pun would’ve turned 44 today, and in honor of his born-day Eclipse has liberated the full audio from that August 31st, 1995 show.

He explains:

I always recorded my guest sets on KCR so I couldn’t for the life of me understand why I wouldn’t have the one Riz and I did when Fat Joe brought up Big Pun for the first time (along w/Armageddon & Keith Nut). Come to find out I forgot to label the tapes with the date. Anyway, seems only fitting to post this today on Pun’s birthday. Joe starts the interview (151:40) and plays some joints off his album before introducing everyone to the mic (167:42). I threw on “Broken Language” and Pun set it all off. Other dope moments were the Pumpkinhead, Natural Elements and O.C./Poops promos that Bob started off the night with before Riz got on (10:20) and showed off (see Nas Remix). Bobbito plays a demo set in the middle of the show (113:15) before Terror Squad arrives and then I close it out (179:22). And what would a Stretch & Bobbito show be without comedy from Lord Sear (228:30) For more insight on this Pun appearance check out the movie “Stretch & Bobbito: Radio That Changed Lives”.

Vintage Video: Kanye West Freestyles at Fat Beats Opening (Extended)

Friday, July 25th, 2014

After sharing that gem of a clip of a 19-year old Kanye flowing at the opening of the iconic Fat Beats vinyl outlet a couple of weeks ago, DJ Eclipse today leaks an extended version of the clip (via 2DBZ) that also features bars from Al Tariq, Butter Lee & Black Attack.


Some context:

I’m sure most of you have seen the Kanye clip from the grand opening of Fat Beats by now. Like I had mentioned before there were so many dope artists performing that day. Here’s the extended clip that the Kanye footage came from along with some back story. Al Tariq from the Beatnuts came through that day and brought some of his people with him. His people being Butter Lee from Rawcotiks, Black Attack and Kanye West. Both Rawcotiks and Black Attack were featured on Tariq’s “God Connections” album which came out on Correct Records in ’96. Another artist that was on Correct Records was Grav who was from Chicago and put out an album called “Down To Earth” (also in ’96). Not only was Tariq featured on that album as well, but it would also feature the first appearance of Kanye West on the mic on a song called “Line For Line” (which he also produced along with half the album). In addition to that connection, Kanye was a student of No I.D. & Dug Infinite who were producers that had been working with Common (Sense). Common was signed to Relativity Records as was the Beatnuts. So when Kanye started making trips to New York to “make it” in the music biz one of his first stops was at Relativity Records. There was a person who worked at Relativity named Peter Kang who was heavily involved with the Beatnuts and also took an early interest in Kanye West and started managing him. So whenever he would have the Beatnuts out and about he would bring around Kanye. And that’s how Kanye ended up at Fat Beats that day. Happy 20th anniversary Fat Beats!

I wonder what else Eclipse has in the stash?

Vintage Video: Kanye West Freestyles at Fat Beats Opening Circa 1996

Thursday, July 17th, 2014

Wow. DJ Eclipse just liberated this footage of a young19 year-old Kanye spitting at the grand opening of the old Fat Beats store on 6th Avenue in the West Village. Eclipse gave Complex some context:

“The original location of Fat Beats launched on July 14, 1994 which means FB just turned 20 years old! Business was doing so well 2 years in that Joseph Abajian decided to move the store from it’s small 9th St. basement space into a 2nd floor location on 6th Avenue. August 1996 (day?) was the grand opening of the 406 6th Avenue location. It was also the beginnings of our independent movement which had recently started bubbling about a year before. Yesterday I started converting old Hi8 video tapes to DVD and came across some interesting footage from that day. Now we had a lot of the usual suspects in the place that day such as ILL BILL, Arsonists, Lord Finesse, Adagio, Breeze Brewin, A.L. Skills, Percee P, J-Live, Mr. Live, Chino XL, Al Tariq, Black Attack, Xzibit, Shabaam Sahdeeq, Rawcotiks, Ak Skills, Rob Swift, Roc Raida, DJ Spinna and many, many more. But what took me by surprise was the appearance of this 19-year-old kid who at that time nobody knew. At least in NYC.”

Fat Beats famously closed its NY and LA retail locations in 2010, but lives on as an online store and indie label. Previously: Kanye on a Failed Reality Show Pilot
