This has to be hands down, my favorite of all Wake Up Show Anthems ever recorded. Check the lineup: NaS, Organized Konfusion, Ras Kass, Dred Scott, Shyheim, unknown???, Saafir and Lauryn Hill on the hook. This was 92.3 The Beat and LA’s anthem at the time. Despite being all the way out in Hawaii, I was always tuned in to the Wake Up Show with Sway & King Tech which, believe it or not, we actually caught out here. At one point, I had damn near the entire collection of the Wake Up Show freestyle compilations. Moms unfortunately threw them shits out. I’ve also included a freestyle from Hawaii’s own Tassho Pearce who was invited up to the Wake Up Show a few times. This particular freestyle is from a cipher that featured Pharoahe Monch and Mykill Myers.
