1. Freshco & Miz Documentary Preview (VIDEO).

    WATCH: Freshco & Miz Documentary Preview.

    Let's get one thing straight from jump: this is not , as the VO declares, "The most anticipated hip-hop story ever told." But it's an interesting story from BITD. Brooklyn emcee Freshco and Philly DJ Miz each won their respective Battles For World Supremacy at the New Music Seminar in 1989 - basically the Golden Era rap equivalent of winning American Idol .



    They joined forces as a burgeoning super-duo and together put out one dope single on Tommy Boy - "We Don't Play" b/w "Ain't You Freshco" before more or less vanishing. This film aims to explain what happened. There's some pretty great NMS footage in these previews - including a sick home movie of Phife, Dres, and Charlie Brown trading rhymes (@ 10:18) . Apparently, the filmmakers are seeking some help getting it finished/distributed. Those interested in playing benefactor check the contact info at the end of the clip.

    Freshco taking calls from the DNA/Hank Love listening audience. Pretty ill when he starts talking about who else was in the Seminar battle ("A guy named Lord Finesse..."). DJ Polo also stops by for a quick minute. Listen for the end of the clip when one caller actually cranks Freshco and disses him kinda hard. Tough town then, New York.
