THE DOPEST SHIT I EVER HEARD IN MY MOTHERFUCKIN’ LIFE

This one started it all for me.. this is the earliest recording I have – June 1 2004.

Every Sunday I stayed up to listen to classick material, the best hip hop show on radio. I only recorded it for 4 months before they suddenly stopped broadcasting. The demise of classick material led me to dig for more shows.. before long I was recording just about every show in the city.

Bozack Morris said Toronto has some “world class hip hop shows”. Classick Material was one of them, no doubt. I promise to have all 12 classick material recordings up by the end of 2008. So check out the classick material archive for a few others. Every hip hop fan needs to hear these.

Note this one got cut short somehow. Only the first hour was recorded.

“Hosted by Grumps, Mixed by Roach One & Jake De Snake, and produced by RofromtheBoro BTHH show is two hours of straight hip hop, no pop.”

Jake says: “Check it out, we’ve been putting it down for almost 10 years on the low low… ” in an email from, uhh, a long time ago. Sorry for sleeping on you guys for so long.
