Check Out This 1995 Future Flavas Set From Pete Rock & Marley Marl (Audio)

In the ’90s, Hot 97 in New York City was home to the Future Flavas radio show, a Hip-Hop devoted program that was steered by KRS-One who then bequeathed the disc-jockey throne to Pete Rock and Marley Marl in January of ’95.The two had previously worked the 1s & 2s on WBLS’ “In Control,” where a teenaged Pete Rock began finessing his skills. By the time he and Marley Marl reconnected on Hot 97, he was a master of his craft who undoubtedly included his Hip-Hop elder as one of his earliest influences behind the turntables.

Highlights of this particular set (aired on January 29, 1995) include tracks from Heavy D, Brandy, LL Cool J, Lords of the Underground, and a handful of others for nearly 60 minutes of what they call the “raw, un-cut” Hip-Hop that proliferated the New York City radio world in the years before.

Press play.
