Boogie Down Productions' "Philosophy Night"

This is a true piece of hip-hop history right here, straight from the personal archives of Mr. Kevin Beacham. Kevin taped this amazing full 9 minutes radio broadcast of Boogie Down Productions ripping the stage on what was called the "Philosophy Night" party held in The Bronx back in 1988. The event celebrated the release of BDP's new single and video release "My Philosophy" and features The Teacher, KRS-One, on the microphone and D-Nice holding down the turntables. Apparantly WNUR 89.3 didn't broadcast the entire show but the tracks their listeners, and now we thx to Beacham's uploading of his old cassette, were treated to performances of "Up to Date", "Stop the Violence", "Dope Beat" and "I'm Still #1". Head over to Fifth Element Online to read more about the event and don't forget to thank Kevin Becham there for this fantastic upload. All thanks to him for letting me use this piece on The Lost Tapes (right click on the link + save as to download).
