Treacherous 3 and T LA Rock. Live In Hempstead, Long Island 1985

Traveling out a liitle bit East of Queens,NY. A town by the name of Hempstead also had an early start on Hip Hop. Hempstead NY. was mostly known for the Hip Hop shows that were broadcasted live from the College radio stations. Listeners in the range of FM stations such as wrhu ( Hofstra Radio ), wbau ( Adelphi ), Stony brook or CW Post have gotten to hear the most underground raw Hip Hop that was being released during those times.

The College parties, Not to much needs to be said about those. you can use your imagination. But, I will tell you this, the shows and performances were Legendary. Everybody who was anybody came out to the college campuses to perform or promote their music.

The year is 1985. Hempstead, Long Island is the place to be. The Boogie Down BX was in the building. The Treacherous Three and T La Rock. Live In Hempstead,NY 1985

Dirty Harry - Fistful Of Dollars 96

In the mid 1990's, The mixtape scene in Queens was exploring some serious talents. If you just walked down the streets of Jamaica Ave you would find the street vendors peddling the best blends to ever be found on cassettes. One of Queens most underrated was a DJ by the name of Dirty Harry. Representing the northside ( St.Albans, Queens Village, Hollis, Cambria Heights, and Merrick ) Dirty Harry kept The Streets Buzzing.

Ten years before we would be introduced to Serato, Dirty Harry was mixing two, three, and even sometimes four records at the same time. It is still a question on whether he was using four turntables or a four track machine. Either way, His skills were still innovative.

The only downfall with the Dirty Harry Tapes was that he released them far and in between. There are not that many of them.

Summertime Summertime. The year was 1986. Hotter then July was the month. Queens was on fire. Everyone was carrying boom boxes and sporting Adidas or Filas. Hip Hop was in full effect. Coming out of Queens emerged a fierce Mc's that went by the name of Mikey D. You couldn't go to a park jam on either side of Merrick with seeing him their or at least someone mentioning his name.

The School Playgrounds and Parks Became a Battleground For Rappers to challenge each other to find out who had the best game. Mikey D was one of those rappers that was never scared to take on any rapper that dared to challenge him.
