Show Description
BBC 5 was born out of the midst of struggle. Determined to reconnect with my Brooklyn fam and revive oldschool Hip Hop, I DJ Cyrus moved back to this unchallenged borough of NYC. On the streets, I ran into dudes attempting to push CDs with the same playlists that were originally aired on B-Boy Classics at We used to call this biting! Even on New York radio (I won't say any names), DJs were attempting to bring back these very cuts that have been ignored by them for years. Was it because the names were included in the BBC playlists? Someone is not giving credit were credit is due. But hey, its not what you play, its how you play it. This particular show was produced in the heart of the slums. Copies of the prior shows had been burned to CD, which prompted my man Quest Legendz (a street rapper from Bed-Stuy) to drop a promo for BBC 5. That promo is from the heart, no gimmicks. The first half hour brings back the boom box classics. Especially the mix by Kool DJ Red Alert. I actually wore that one out in 1986, until a friend of mine snatched it out of my ride. It was recorded at a time when Kool DJ Red Alert (98.7 WRKS), KRS One, etc. were bombing with Mr. Magic (107.5 WBLS), Marley Marl, Juice Crew, etc. The Cold Crush harmony (1981) was originated by the Crash Crew (1977). Refelecting on shows recorded in 1978 when Grandmaster Flash had the Furious 4 (not 5), you can see how rappers hear biting off each other. Busy Bee vs. Kool Moe Dee brought it all to light. This is a battle that changed the face of rap music and intensified competition between crews. The hardcore edge on the 2nd half of the show is due to the frustration of brothers getting shot down in our hood for no reason. Its raining, our feet are wet, there is an eviction notice on the door, people who were close to us have passed away, and we are doing everything we can to stay focused. We are doing this for real Hip Hop fans who can see beyond the mainstream BS.

Comment: Definitely can feel this one! Even non hip hop tracks like Puttin' A Rush On Me and I Just Can't Wait (which we used to listen to anyway back in the days). 5***** P.S. Wasn't Busy Bee vs. Kool Moe Dee recorded in december 1981 (Harlem World) instead of 1982? I remember that whole cassette being dope as hell.

Comment: DJ Cyrus MURDERED this show and no one is comparing to him. My favorite mix is the one with Sucker MC's/You're puttin a rush on me blend. I have never heard anything mixed so precisely and perfect. Keep up the good work DJ Cyrus, more scratching from you and keep up the love of real Hip Hop.

DJ Cyrus defines old school. Born in California in 1969 he grew up in the north side of Pasadena. In 1983, before some of today’s hip hop fans were even born, Cyrus began experimenting with cassette decks using the pause button technique, attempting to make mega mixes and emulate the sound he heard on boom boxes around his way. In 1985, Cyrus left California for the midwest (Minneapolis, MN to be exact) and began using turntables for the first time. Under the name L-Rock, he began trading cassettes with other B-Boys and accumulated a stockpile of underground hip hop music from the 80s that would surely fetch thousands of dollars in today’s market. In 1987, Cyrus landed in the east coast scene of Washington, D.C. using the alias Madskills. He began mixing live cassettes with MCs rapping over break beats and traded New York mixed tapes for V103 mixes with a DJ crew called the Numarks. Washington D.C. also introduced Cyrus to Go Go. After leaving DC, Cyrus began moving all around North America picking up tricks, equipment, techniques, musical styles, and observing hip hop in it’s rawest form in cities and corners in Chicago, Jamaica Queens, Fulton Ave, Flatbush, Bed-Stuy, Haiti, the Domincan Republic, Boston, and finally Virginia (where he calls home today). When asked where he got the inspiration for this show, Cyrus had this to say: “I became discouraged with mixed CDs that weren’t ‘mixed’ anymore, I decided to revive the original Hip Hop style of Dee-Jaying and set it on these all talk and no show DJs who achieve fame from lip service. Hip Hop is not dead, we just dropped the ball. Hip Hop is Ghetto Art. Strip Hop is fast money and is not concerned with the production of classic material. Underground Hip Hop is real Hip Hop, and real Hip Hop by nature cannot be suppressed. It is an expression of the human soul which has existed with us throughout the ages. is the place where you can engage in Hip Hop in its raw and original form! B-Boy Classics & Battle Mixes is designed specifically for this purpose.” This show is truly a gem, and we encourage everyone to listen to it at least once. You will be hooked. DJ Cyrus is educated from the street level of Hip Hop emerging from the FIRST official generation of Hip Hop Culture.
