Episode #33 ::: Stuck Off The Realness — A Tribute to Prodigy

June 20, 2017
  • If you can imagine what James Brown is to sample based music then you know what Mobb Deep is to Hip Hop scratch hooks. Their resounding mark on deejay culture is undeniable. Today Hip Hop lost one of its most iconic voices. Prodigy was synonymous with the distinctive Queens Bridge sound and gave us what's arguably the defining song (Shook Ones II) of that mid to late 90's East New York hardcore street style. We were stuck off the realness. RIP Dunn.
