Mikey D - Live Freestyle - 1986

Still remembering the great times that has taken place in the park of Queens NY in the 80's. It was all about lyrics. If you was able to tell a good story on that mic, while at the same time keep the party people partying. you was the Man.

Very low key in the blackground was the DJ. for those of us that was paying attention to what was happening behind the scenes. We got a chance to see some of the most incredible talents in the form of DJing out in South Jamaica.

This was one of my all time favorites. The story is very organized and lyrical. But what I like the most one this one is the off beat on beat DJ Style of Cutting That DJ Johnnie Quest was doing on the turntables. And the way Mikey D never missed a beat was epic.

The year was 1986. Not sure of the Park. Either PS. 231 of maybe Ajax. Either way Enjoy This One.

The Best Of Mikey D - 2005

In the summer of 2005, the underground scene on the streets of Queens NY. was really buzzing. This is around the time when every recording artist became independent. This was possible by artist pressing up their own CD's or DVD's and distributing them hand to hand. Also during that time was when you could walk into any local deli, groceries store or barber shop and purchase bootleg copies of all of your favorite albums or mixtapes.

Most of these projects were handcrafted so they were only available in limited supply. There was alot of good music and hood movies released on the streets. Some of these releases stood out more than others.

The best of Mikey D mixtape is now 10 years old. Not sure how many were actually made but if you have a physical copy of this CD you are holding a rare gem.
