This is the only other Mista Boxx solo show I have. As far as I know these are the only two, and seems this is the last time any of the classick material crew rocked on project bounce. Two hours no talking. Check it.

After Classick Material stopped broadcasting in October 2004, host Mista Boxx ran a short lived segment on Project Bounce. I have two “Mista Boxx” shows, this one and next week. They never ran again as far as I know. I think there was one ‘classick material’ reunion in 2005 but I never heard it. If anyone has any more classick material recordings on tape, give em up! My boy todd over at classicradiorips has one from way back in 2002 – check it out here.

No talking on this one, since Mista Boxx does it solo. Interesting to hear Boxx’s selections without his co-DJs. Something I always loved about this hip hop radio thing is each DJ has their own unique personality that you can feel through their music. Check Rhyme Mania ’99 — its up there on my list of my favorite tracks of all time. Also the last unknown track on set 4 (“never play the front line/ I be deep in the cut”) – let me know if you know what that’s called, sick track.

DJ Law drops this set which is mostly Canadian content. Ghetto Concept going back to ’92, Frankenstein to ’95.. these are some real classic Toronto hip hop tracks. And, to top it all off, we even get “Kish – Crates to Concrete” — a track I never thought I’d hear again. I don’t know whether the two unknowns are Toronto rap but it wouldn’t surprise me.

DJ Mensa (myspace here) was a staple DJ on the recently cancelled Project Bounce. His style is upbeat: lots of music for the ladies and the homies alike, striking a balance between dance music and the real hiphop for the heads. Check out this mix, which is really two mixes: a bunch of dope 80s/90s tracks, and then a 2Pac segment.

FLASHBACK

DJ Law is the shit. That’s all I can say.

Unfortunately Project Bounce has been taken off the air effective December 2007. Sure, I wasn’t listening to it every night or anything, but this is almost as sad as when Classick Material got cancelled, just more abrupt. I mean, shit, how will I get my DJ Law fix!?!

For the time being anyways that’s no problem because I’ve got a couple more sets to post. I’ll try to throw up all the Project Bounce related stuff I can in upcoming posts as tribute to this legendary Toronto hip hop institution.

Oh yeah, DJ Law is the shit.


Some people use the word funky too loosely
And just how many rappers said they kick it like Bruce Lee
