February 20, 1992

The recordings starts off with a couple of hardcore tracks from a yet-to-be-named punk show that preceded Raw Deal. Raw Deal kicks in at about 4:07. I cut lots of stuff from this episode, sadly, probably in an attempt to get a three hour show onto a 90 minute tape. Lots of shows and promotions on this episode including upcoming Howard University Rap Conference, the second part of the Mahorn’s DJ battle (I think he said DJ Swift won part one), an Ice-T concert at City Gardens the following week, and Ed Lover’s birthday party on February 23rd (which allowed me to date this episode accurately). DJ Plexx from the Blvd. Mosse is in the house, as is Professor Tim.
