September 19, 1991

This may be the first special edition 11-hour episode that the Raw Deal crew did (though they did do a six hour New Year’s Eve show at one point). Celebrating their five-year anniversary, this special episode started at 1pm, but my tape starts at about 2:15pm. If my school day ended right about 2, I likely got home, came straight upstairs, and hit record.

At the end of the 2:15pm side, a funny moment occurs when they play Busy Bee’s “Suicide” and refer to him as “one of the coolest old men in hip-hop.” Busy Bee was 28 at the time. G notes that “Genius’ cousin Prince Rakeem may be stopping in later.” Powerule is also stops by mid-afternoon and Organized Konfusion is supposed to call in by the end of the show.

The date is based on an ad at about the 2:30pm point advertising the season premiere of Dear John (and other shows) that night, which aired on September 19, 1991. This is confirmed with the concert calendar that airs at 3:30pm and an ad for the 11-hour program that airs a little after 4.

I’ve got almost eight hours of the show posted now and will add more of the show as I come across the tapes.
