Posted: January 25, 2011 by mega7981 in LIFE, MEGA'S VHS COLLECTION

WHAT UP FAM!!!

THIS NEWS COVERAGE IS A REFLECTION OF THE SCENE THAT WAS BIG IN MY JUNIOR HIGH / HIGH SCHOOL DAYS IN THE EARLY 90’s. REMEMBER STREET BEAT MAG. BROWN PRIDE / T.W.S. / MASS PRODUCTION / TRINITY / HO PATROL / UNXPECTED etc. THERE WERE SO MANY PARTY CREWS IN MY NEIGHBORHOOD I CAN’T LIST THEM ALL. THIS WAS A TIME WHERE YOU GOT A FLYER, CALL THE PHONE NUMBER TO FIND THE MAP POINT, WHICH WILL GIVE YOU DIRECTIONS TO THE PARTY THAT WAS TOTALLY ILLEGAL. NO MATTER HOW SHADY IT COULD GET WE WOULD STILL GO NO MATTER WHAT.

THE FASHION IS ANOTHER STORY. FROM G.A.T. / FAT CAP / CROSS COLORS / HAT’S WITH YOUR CREW NAME ON IT / FRESH JIVE /FLIGHT JACKETS  etc. AGAIN SO MANY TO LIST I CAN GO ON AND ON,

LASTLY DEEP HOUSE / TECHNO WAS SO BIG BACK THAN. POWER TOOLS ON POWER 106 WAS BORN (SHOUT OUT TO DJ ROBERT CHANGE) AND EVERYBODY JUST WANTED TO DANCE SO HIP HOP WAS HARDELY EVER IN DEMAND AT HOUSE PARTIES. I BEING A HARDCORE HIP HOP FAN FELT LIKE A MINORITY IN THE SCENE BUT I COULDN”T DENY HOW ILL DEEP HOUSE WAS BACK IN THE DAY. HEARING CAJMERE FOR THE FIRST TIME WAS A BLESSING. NOW A DAYS TOP HITS ARE TRYING TO APPLY THAT OLD SOUND TO NEW ELECTRO TRACKS WHICH IS COOL. I”M NOT GONNA HATE ON THAT. BUT I”LL NEVER FORGET THE WATCHING THE DJ’S WORK THE TABLES IN MY NEIGHBORHOOD. DJ 747 r.i.p. , DJ Work, lil Smokey, June Bug , I CAN’t REMEMBER ALL THE NAMES BUT NYFF RESPECT TO YALL, BUT THE BACK YARD PARTY’S WERE YOU KNEW WAS GONNA GET SHADY WTIH GANGSTA’S WAS SO FUN TO BE AT. I THINK IT WAS PRIMARILY BECAUSE OF THE GIRLS THAT WOULD BE THERE THAT WE WOULD RISK OUR LIVES. LOL

DROP A COMMENT IF YOU GOT MEMORIES ON THAT SCENE HOLLA!

IT”S ALL LOVE!!!
