Feature on the legendary DJ Red Alert written by Reef in the Source, october 1993.
Review of Lord Finesse second LP in The Source of february 1992, and the audio is the only good track from one of the worst Afrika Bambaataa albums, with Finesse, Lucien, possibly RMR from Nu Sounds/Strictly Roots, possibly True Culture and somebody else named Williams (they’re only credited under their real names on the vinyl).

A little background story Moe Dee’s most famous battle, as told to Chris Wilder in the 50th issue of The Source. Since I already upload the Busy B battle yesterday, here is a part of Kool Moe Dee’s other famous battle, on wax this time, with LL Cool J.

I’ve been asked for that one a long time ago in the comments. Written by AJ Woodson (and Kool Moe Dee). Don’t hesitate to ask if you’re looking for something specific.

KRS was the first to have his face on the front page of The Source, and I think this is the last time he was on the cover. A very good feature written by Carlito Rodriguez in march 1997, probably one the most personal piece about him where he talks about his friends, his wife and his two sons Kris and the late Randy.

Great article on KRS One, the Reprise A&R. OK, he wasn’t exactly a great A&R but it’s still an interesting read. The feature also mention various songs from the unreleased Maximum Strength album (Elliott Wilson, if you read this…) and rarely seen vintage pictures of KRS and Scott LaRock by the great Jannette Beckman. From the february 1999 issue of Blaze. Written by editor in chief Jesse Washington.
Typically, the january year-end issue of The Source was the boring one that nobody read. Except KRS who found some comments from Kierna Mayo Dawsey offensive . I wanted to scan the lengthy article in question but it’s so boring that my scanner keeps falling asleep midway through it.
