    And we say cotdamn!… It’s one thing to sleep on a certain music project, but it’s an entirely different thing to slip into a coma on a phenomenal creation like last year’s Solid Steel and the Hour of Chaos by DJ Moneyshot, one of the same masterminds behind this illmatic Paul’s Boutique reconstruction. But we’re making up for lost time by keepin’ this one on repeat, something we suggest everyone who still hasn’t experienced this will probably do anyway.

    Says Solid Steel Radio Show: It’s another special show as our own DJ Moneyshot presents another classic album deconstructed for the Solid Steel 25th Anniversary. Public Enemy‘s It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back is also 25 years old and to honour both occasions DJ Moneyshot shows us once again why he’s the mixtape king with the career-best offering, Solid Steel and the Hour of Chaos. Over 60 blistering minutes he takes in all the beats, breaks, samples and spoken word nuggets that made this seminal Bomb Squad production such an explosive release. Amongst the vast stack of tracks in the mix, expect words of wisdom from Louis Farrakhan, exclusive interviews with Hank Shocklee, and all the soul, rock ‘n’ roll and early rap tracks that went into making up P.E’s (if not hip-hop’s) finest album.
