Funkmaster Flex's Fourth of July 90's Mix

Didn't actually hear this live, but listened to ALL FIVE HOURS when I got back to Brooklyn this morning. Had a good time in Hampton and Virginia Beach with my boys Yusuf and AK, but now it's back to New York flava. Funk Flex goes BANANAS with this mix and you can literally just press play and let it serve as the soundtrack of ya weekend. Hot 90's hip-hop with classic hit after hit and solid spinnin by Flex himself. This is why I love NYC radio, most notably Hot 97, and why I never turn on the radio back in Durham. 102 Jamz and K97.5 need to take note...

Just listened to part 1 on my way out to class and was lovin it. When Flex put that Fuck Compton on..."This aint about no MTV or VH1 NONSENSE, That doesnt represent the 90s to ME, Theres nothing happy about the 90s"
I've never heard that Fuck Compton song and had no idea ppl from NY where dissin LA directly like that, not like that media made East vs West bullshit .
bout to DL pt 2
"Gangbanin over colors? Yall some stupid motherfukas!"

Ok so I just got down listening to the mix on my way home from work. Im not gonna act like I knew a majority of the songs that where played and 'that they took me back' (Back then I was just dirty lil fuck learning how to aim my pee (Prodigy(c)) but just to hear Ciph, Flex, and Pete go nuts when a new jawn was put on made my face hairs rise. The last hour of the mix was really the only time I was able to 'sing along' (Mobb, NaS, Raekwon, Wu).
As a DJ who still uses Vinyl records I could def. appreciate this mix. Hearing the needle skip on these old records never sounded better.
As for Radio, it sucks but with something like this, it just blows my mind that Program Directors and GMs wont let DJs do their thing. In Atlanta Hot 1079 will do all mix weekends (New Years, 4th, Memorial Day) and Ill ACTUALLY listen. Down here DJs will do 90's sets as well but the sound that was coming from Atlanta back then was all about that Bass. Radios gonna be radio so thank god for the mp3 player.

Thanks for puttin this up
