DJ Doom, Nutso and the 3 O.G.s pay tribute to the original funky technician Jimmy Castor (RIP) who blessed Hip-Hop / B-Boy culture with one of the most recognizable floor movers, It’s Just Begun. Chopping it up on his trusted SP1200, DJ Doom takes on a new twist to the b-boy anthem while still maintaing the essence of the original 1972 record.

Three years ago, we posted a sometimes over-looked Jaz-O song featuring a young Jayzee, circa 1991, a couple years after Hawaiian Sophie was released. Today, we’re hooking it up with two more joints from Jaz-O’s 1991 EP, Ya Don’t Stop, both featuring Large Professor production.

Extra P and Mega Montana hit Warsaw to treat their fans there to a show. “Get Out My Way” still sounds crazy as it did when I first heard it many moons ago.
As part of Sway’s live concert series on his radio show, Extra P rocked out his Breaking Atoms classic cut on air.

On The Mad Scientist off his debut solo LP (no pun intended):
“To this day, I love performing that song. And people [still say], ‘That shit is ill.’ I found that loop out in Jersey. It was me, Q-Tip, and JuJu [from The Beatnuts] going through these records at this factory. I found that loop, and I was like, ‘Yo, I’m gonna use this.’ So I went back and hooked it up.
“This is when I was starting to work on my solo stuff, right after Main Source. I was still on Wild Pitch, and [they] were like, ‘Well, if you’re not going to do Main Source, we still want you to do a solo project.’ And [K-Cut and Sir Scratch] went on to do the Fuck What You Think album.
“I felt like Main Source was very broad, and I wanted to get more into who I was and how I came up. So [this record] was almost like an introductory type of thing. Basically, I just tried to keep it B-boy hip-hop. At that time, there was a different movement getting ready to come up. Everybody was jiggy, and nothing was wrong, like, ‘I got all the flyest cars.’ And here I am like, ‘Never had a basement, never had an attic.’ I’m kind of belly-aching and shit, and dudes are like, ‘Aiight, aiight.’ Meanwhile B.I.G. is like, ‘I got the 5 Series Benz’ and all that. It was just a different time. I wanted to get deeper into the style, but a different wave was happening.
