Been busy trying to catch up on somethings this week, mainly a couple interviews that I’ve been sitting on for awhile and a couple other projects. Still have a full slate of things for the rest of the week….until now, enjoy the sounds of 1983 once again.
This little mix comes from DJ Scientist and his label Equinox Records.

28 Minutes About Money & Hard Times In 1983
10 nice tracks solely out of the year 1983 to keep you grooving. Obscure lyrics like those of an M.C. called January 20 (a scarce record out of Ohio) and Mr. Supa-Rap’s “Bills” will definitely put a smile on your face. On the other hand, kid rapper Ken “C” complains about the school system, the Hit And Run crew (with a rare track featured on the German label Metrovynil) worries about getting jailed, and Run-D.M.C. provides us with their classic joint “Hard Times”.
