    1am just back from the show.

    Scratch was amazing, he had the place rocking. He was on point, played with the crowd, layed down amazing beats... all goodness.

    Then Biz came on and sadly stunk it up. He had no flow, he was medicore at best as a DJ. His cutting, scratching, beat matching, mixing was very rough. And his selection was awful.

    We left after about 30 mins. of the Biz.

    Very sad to write this, but Scratch made it totally worth it, he was on fire.

    He's an overweight over enthusiastic record collector, were you expecting Rob Swift or something?!?

    You never had his TAPE KINGZ mixtapes from the 90s? You didn't know he would do slow jams? rewinds? chat on the mic??

    Golden era hits and funk jams are awful selections? :rolleyes:

    That wasn't DJ Kool he dropped, it was Mark the 45 King.


    But I will give you credit for being a great hater.

    Wasn't what the crowd was there for, and even his hype man knew it - you could see it on his face, and he's all like "okay, we're warming up now, we're gonna get hot here in a moment" - or something along those lines...

    I agree - golden era hits and funk jams are great, but, like I said - the room was dead. Biz's fault totally. Scratch handed him the room on a platter, couldn't have tee'd it up any better...
