1. PLAYBACK’S A MUTHA: “ego trip Night” on WNYU’s “Halftime Show” 9.27.00

    In September of 2000 the ego trip crew was invited up to Eclipse and Riz’s world famous “Halftime Show” on WNYU to promote the then-freshly-released Rawkus Records-backed soundtrack to our Book of Rap Lists, ego trip’s The Big Playback.

    Eclipse christened the evening “ego trip Night” – and in the spirit of the album, our hosts channeled their inner Hank Love and Half Pint and put together an incredible 2-hour-plus set of “Golden Era” obscurities and lost classics that still sounds devastating to the ear. In addition, a few luminaries from back in the day joined us as in-studio guests: “The Rappin’ Comedian” MC Mitchski (whose MC Shan-answer record, “Brooklyn Blew Up the Bridge,” appears on The Big Playback), the “Rhyme Inspector” Percee P, and “Lyrical King” T La Rock. Anecdotes were shared, hip-hop quotables and vintage verses kicked, and a funky-fresh time was had by all (yes-yes, y’all).
