Goin Way Back Show: The Year Was 1987

Digital Underground’s Money B is a Philly native although many people think he’s from California because of his legendary group. Check out his recent podcast with DJ 69 dedicated to classic hip hop from 1987. Apparently he’s going to do a podcast counting up ever year some of the best hip hop from those years. Additional commentary & tracklisting under the hood……

“The year was 1987. Acid wash jeans and Coca-Cola sweatshirts were the sh*t. Everybody was rockin Fila, Lotto, and Troop. The ultimate accessory was a fat gold chain. LL Cool J was the man, but a whole new wave of emcee’s were about to burst onto the scene. 1987 saw the debut of albums from Public Enemy, Boogie Down Productions, Eric B and Rakim, Dana Dane, Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince, Steady B, MC Hammer, and the original lineup of N.W.A. And The Posse. Big Daddy Kane, EPMD, and Audio Two had the streets buzzin’ with hot singles. Hip Hop was in full effect! Yours truly, DJ 69 takes you on a trip down memory lane. Where were you in 1987?”
