Avatar 6:17pm Billy Jam:

Amidst Hip-Hop’s initial explosion throughout New York’s boroughs and surrounding towns, a new generation emerged – the first to be raised on the genre. In the center of it all was a collective known as the Juice Crew, led by the charismatic radio personality Mr. Magic, whose Rap Attack was the first program of its kind on a commercial station. His DJ/engineer Marley Marl pioneered production techniques that defined the Golden Era of Hip-Hop, and formed the basis of Cold Chillin’ Records, founded in 1986 by Len Fichtelberg and manager/radio producer Tyrone “Fly Ty” Williams.

Goin’ Off chronicles the rise and fall of the label and its partnership with Warner Bros. Records, and follows the careers of its recording artists. Roxanne Shanté was a 14-year-old battle rapper who spawned the diss record, MC Shan engaged in a legendary cross-borough feud with KRS-One, Kool G Rap was a foundational participant in what the media dubbed “gangsta rap,” Big Daddy Kane’s quick-witted lyricism changed the way people rhyme, the collegiate Masta Ace sought to uplift his community during the height of the crack epidemic, The Genius (aka GZA) co-founded the rap dynasty Wu-Tang Clan, and the enigmatic Biz Markie had the world singing along to his platinum-selling anthem “Just a Friend.”

Plagued by corporate censorship in the wake of the “Cop Killer” controversy and a landmark sample-related lawsuit just as Hip-Hop was entering the mainstream conscience in the 1990s, Cold Chillin’ folded, leaving behind a legacy shrouded in controversy and a catalog that directly influenced multiple generations of rap artists, including Nas, Jay-Z, Snoop Dogg, Biggie Smalls and Kendrick Lamar.

“Inspired by labels like Cold Chillin’, I started my own ‘true school’ Hip-Hop label Stones Throw in 1996,” states Peanut Butter Wolf in the foreword for Goin’ Off, whose own label has had great success with Mad Lib, J Dilla, MF DOOM and Aloe Blacc. “I had people (including family members) tell me for years and years that I’d never be able to make it in the music industry, but the inspiration I received from those Juice Crew records during my teen years were the impetus for my label creation.”

Thanks for this excellent set Billy. Killing it as usual!
Avatar 7:17pm Billy Jam:

most figure the "Golden Age" to be 88 - 93 but I feel like 94 bookended the era and paved way (as did the era - for the next phase of hip-hop into the 90's and early 2000s - hence the inclusion of this wonderful DJ Marz mix recorded back in 1994 that had a green cover - hence known as the "Green Tape" but originally known as the "High School Mixtape" since Marz was in high school when he made it - For this show I edited down the mix so as to both make it fit into this one-hour show and to adhere to FCC regulations - Here is the download link of the uncensored original mix =
