DJ Eclipse keeps on keeping on with rolling out nostalgic, throwback footage from the early days of the legendary Fat Beats. First, he blessed the internets with footage of a 19 year old Kanye West rapping, and then the extended footage with Al Tariq, Black Attack, Rawcotiks and Butter Lee.

Here’s some throwback footage of Dilated Peoples, Jurassic 5, The Beat Junkies and Eclipse himself at Dilated’s in-store back in ’99.

Since Dilated & Jurassic are back on tour together and hitting NYC this weekend I figured I would post this clip from the last time they were on tour together back in 1999. This footage is from a Dilated Peoples in-store at Fat Beats NYC on the day that they were doing their New York stop on the “Word Of Mouth” tour. August 11, 1999. The bill was Dilated Peoples, Jurassic 5, Beat Junkies and me, DJ Eclipse. The venue was Tramps, home to some of the illest shows NYC had seen in the 90s. The interesting thing about this show was that it was the last show Tramps had before it closed down. Some footage from that night to come.
