French old school hip hop: Free Style rapping on Radio Nova and Dee Nasty on the wheels of steel

You can find lot's of US and UK hip hop tapes on my blog and even some Dutch mixtapes. But thanx to Andrew everybody can now enjoy also some original french hip hop from back in the days.
How come? Well, Craig asked some time ago "Do you have any Radio Nova stuff, Dee Nasty or anything from that station ? Anyone know where I can find vintage Dee Nasty ?" in the cbox.
I hadn't, but Andrew responded that he had some. And today he mailed me 2 mp3's and 1 mpg.

Andrew, big props to you my friend. After MixMasta Tee, you are the 2nd one this week who mailed me some tapes to share and that makes me happy :-)

Enough said, here are the links:

Chuck Chillout on KISS FM, november / december '87

I recieved a mail from MixMasta Tee from New Zealand. He has a lot of original NY hip hop tapes from the 80's - mid 90's and is starting to convert them.

This is the first one, a Chuck Chillout show from 1987. Based on the commercials it must be (end of) november / december.
One of my favorite parts is when Chuck can't wait till a commercial about pregnancy testing is over and starts rocking the bells (part A, after 36 minutes).

MixMasta, i know you make a lot of old school headz happy with this (i'm having a big smile on my face...).

Looking forward to the next one!

Dr Dre Operating Room show with KRS ONE and Scott La Rock, 1987-02-10

This is not just another old school radio show. The operating room shows from Dr. Dre are very hard to find. And this one is imo very special. It contains an interview with KRS and Scott La Rock (6 months before his death) about the bridge wars, one of the important chapters of hip hop history.
Scott is dissing Mr Magic, Shan and the Juice Crew and KRS is talking about The bridge and the reason to write 'the bridge is over'.
This is like a time capsule back to 1987.

Let me know what you think of it!

ZULU NATION @ Bronx River Center, 1980

Great performances by Lisa Lee, Pow Wow, The Original Jazzy Five, Lil. Starski and Malabu. Also interesting to hear Jazzy J spinning super rapin'. Almost like GMF and the Furious 5 are in the house :-)
