Earlier this year, Tim Westwood lost his longtime post at BBC Radio. The London, England-based radio/video personality has been spoofed by Afion Crockett for his enthusiasm and friendly-fire with guests. However, Heads in the know recognize that Tim Westwood’s work in Hip-Hop goes back to the ’80s. Need proof? UnKut.com liberated this audio from 1990, featuring the last wave of the Juice Crew collective’s glory days.

Mind you, the Juice Crew is still very much alive. But in 1990, it was still common-place to catch Biz Markie, Craig G, Big Daddy Kane, and MC Shan across the seas together. Those MCs are joined by young gun Tragedy Khadafi (before he was completely known as such).


Kool G Rap, Masta Ace, TJ Swan, and Roxanne Shante must not have been on this U.K. jaunt.

Who do you think has the sharpest verse?
