This Soundcloud audio has only been out for one day but seems to be blazing the internets everywhere.
Entitled 'Lunchroom Battles "Desperately seeking Vanessa"', it's a tape of freestyles that took place in hip hop's history all interspersed with newer skits as well as odes to DJ Roc Raida (RIP).
Expect routines from Biz Markie, Big Daddy Kane, The Juice Crew Allstars, Stetsasonic and Run DMC amongst others. Also a very rare audio of Nas and Akinyele speaking their rhymes Live At The BBQ over the UFO break. Dynamite.
You may have heard of that legendary routine between Busy Bee and Kool Moe Dee and here it is in full. Who won? Listen for yourself.
Who else loves La-Di-Da-Di as much as I do? Well here are Doug and Rick giving us a live version but with added dirty lyrics about the ex-Miss America winner and songstress, Vanessa Williams.
The standout for me is a brief freestyle from Fab 5 Freddy using Sucker MC's. Nice, raw hip hop at it's finest.
To be fair if you've got Rap Archives Legends in your collection then a good percent of what's here is on that cd already.
