The legendary DJ Eclipse returns with another round of rare, vintage clips.
The same man who brought us a young Kanye West rapping at Fat Beats in 2002, Talib Kweli performing at Fat Beats, et al. once again reaches into his VHS vaults to share some rare clips of Non Phixion, Missin’ Linx & Special Ed all performing at Tramps NYC in light of the release of Prince Paul’s A Prince Among Thieves.
A month after the release of Prince Paul’s A Prince Among Thieves dropped there was a show at Tramps to celebrate it’s release. Not only did some of the guests from the album perform, but there was also a slew of other groups that rocked as well. This is the first of 3 clips that I’ll post from that night. Unfortunately I was standing a little too close to the speaker so some of the audio isn’t the greatest, but the performances still shine. Many thanks to Peter Oasis and Zvi from LiveNDIrect for throwing these shows and always making sure to put on some of the local NYC indie artists that were making much noise during this era. In this clip you’ve got Non Phixion, Missin’ Linx and Special Ed. A good example of the coverage of Hip Hop you would get at a Tramps show. Stay tuned for more performances from this night.
Speaking of Non Phixion, fans can rejoice as the original line-up of ILL Bill, Sabac Red, Goretex and DJ Eclipse are taking it back to the road this April, as they celebrate 20+ years in the game. Check the flier for dates below.
