1. Crate Diggers: DJ Scratch’s Vinyl Collection (VIDEO).

    “Crate diggin’ is supposed to be when you go to your records, you gotta pull out something that nobody’s never seen and make ’em go, wow!” says the great DJ Scratch – turntable wizard and producer of essentials by EPMD, Busta Rhymes, LL and others. And it’s with said mindset that Scratch show off a few vinyl rarities from his collection (e.g. LL Cool J “I Need a Beat” test pressing, red vinyl copies of Vaughn Mason’s “Bounce Rock Skate Roll,” Michael Jackson Off the Wall album acetate, the Budweiser commercial funk 45, etc.) and explains why E.S.G.’s “UFO” was and will forever be known as the Brooklyn “robbery song.”
