Episode 9-A Crew Love: Digital Underground…a deep delve into the crates of one of the funkiest most original hip hop crews in history founded in 1987 in Oakland, CA. Lead by the artistic vision of producer extraordinaire Shock G DU at its core was Money B, Chopmaster J & Kenny K but the collective continued to grow in time eventually branched out with numerous contributions from DJ’s, musicians and artists like Clee, Saafir, Mystic and of course Tupac who got his start as a roadie for DU in the late 80’s eventually spawning a deep rooted relationship with Shock & Money B which never wavered no matter how far his career took him. Not many groups can be abstract, political, funky, for the ladies and all around fun at the same time but DU did just that with every release and Shock’s signature production style of blending old school hip hop, p-funk samples combined with his own musical skill particularly on the keyboards was one of the main things that made them so unique during their run. Peep the mix featuring tracks from DU, Raw Fusion, Tupac as well as Shock produced tracks for Prince, Monie Love, a verse from Big Pun & an intro featuring George Clinton for good measure..Crew Love is going to be a series of tribute style mixes, look out for more in the future. I’ll drop Part 2 next week for now relax your mind & let your conscience be free…
