RAP ATTACK REMEMBERS 9/11
Jerry Heller & Nasty-Nes
Dennis “Semp” Paredes
has officially launched his mywaydj.com and
wanted to see if you have any good mixes to submit featuring all genres.
He prefers a mixcloud link.
In addition, send Semp the cover for the mix as big as possible
since mixcloud only hosts a small 300x300.
This is is all about the DJ from a DJ from the DJs.
Semp is not stressing on singles right now
unless its a release by a DJ or a cosign direct from a DJ.
Get at him NOW!
DJ 3rd Degree’s
Fire Pick of the Week
Sept 5 - Sept 11, 2016
Blazing your ears this week comes the second single from the upcoming EP release from J Soul and Wordsworth off of HipNott Records (releasing September 23, 2016).
Brooklyn, NY’s Wordsworth teams up with Baltimore MD’s J Soul for this hotness which starts with a smooth sample then gets into it with Wordsworth doing his verbal acrobatics
over a nice boom bap beat created by J Soul.
The fluidity of Wordsworth’s vocal skills
really meshes well with J Soul’s soulful production.
This is one for all to rock!
Til next week . . .

During my past 36 years in the biz, I've been interviewed many times over &
I never get tired of sharing my story!
Recently, I did one of the BEST interviews ever in "The Biggest" podcast show,
hosted by Miguel Rockwell & Joe Hawkins!
You'll hear how I learned to DJ, who taught me and how I became an on-air radio personality. How I met Mix-A-Lot, my first encounter with Mix at the Boys club with Ed Locke (we were the only 2 Asians in the bldg), who started NASTYMIX Records and where the name NASTYMIX came from.
How I still feel so bad (yes, to this day) about getting kicked out of Seattle Prep high school — I reveal what I did & why it was so wrong — and about losing my mom to cancer when I was 18.
How I got to be on Eazy-E's "Radio," my history with Jerry Heller & The World Class Wrekin Cru, my history at 1250 KFOX in 1980 and the FreshTracks show intro from The Emerald Street Boys to Sir Mix-A-Lot.
Why I got fired at KFOX, how KCMU Rap Attack started in 1988 on the condition that Shockmaster Glen Boyd would be my co-host and the birth of KUBE 93's HotMix on Sat night with NUMBER ONE ratings.
Plus you'll hear rare recordings of me on KFOX & KCMU and two original Quick mixes I did featuring Sir Mix-A-Lot, Eazy-E & NWA and yes, allllllllllllll pre-Serato!
A solid 90 minutes with Seattle's Original
MasterMixer & Crazy Pinoy . . . And MORE!
KCMU RAP ATTACK #FBF 1988: I found this on You Tube — a rare recording of two of my very first RAP ATTACK radio shows aired in 1988. The first link is about 37 min long & you can hear my MasterMix around 10min 30 sec into it. Both aired on 90.3FM KCMU, 28 years ago.
I was fired from KFOX in April of 1988 as the station was sold & they made it clear to me that the new KFOX would NOT play RAP/Hip Hop anymore.
KCMU, based on the UW campus, offered me a Sunday night slot around July of 1988 to keep KFOX FRESHTRACKS on the air. I accepted the offer, went from AM to FM in 3 months & renamed my show KCMU RAP ATTACK.
I wanted this show to sound just as good as if you're listening to a Casey Kasem American Top 40 show or any professional sounding show you'd hear on commercial radio. I didn't want to just yell on a mic & say my name in a mix or during the show so I invested $$$ in getting Professional Custom Voice Over Drops. I also made my own Drops & the rest is Seattle Hip Hop HISTORY!
Here it is from 1988 (28 years ago) yours truly, NASTY-NES on KCMU RAP ATTACK!
