The Bassment Show with Dj Critical (Buck 65) – Early Nineties Hip Hop Radio

The Bassment Show with Dj Critical (Buck 65) & J.o Smooth

DJ Moves and the Living Underwater blog have unearthed some old tapes of Buck 65’s radio program from the early nineties. Nice sound quality too!

Buck 65 using the moniker DJ Critical, hosted a hip-hop show on CKDU Halifax called The Bassment (later renamed The Treatment Program when he assumed the stage name Jesus Murphy). The Bassment was definatly the best hiphop radio i had heard to date rivaling alot of Toronto and New York programs i had heard at the time. I dug out all my own taped radio shows and also borrowed Gord-ski’s library of tapes and dumped them all to protools where i semi-mastered and fixed abit. Hope you enjoy them. Theres 9 or 10 in all including a show Dj Critical did interviewing Stinkin Rich (himself) called Music In Exile, which is dope also. I dunno what year that was. I’ll be upping one of these a day til im dun. Leave comments please tell yer friends ect..ect… hope ya like it , i know i loved listening to all of these! Halifax HipHop was Sooo Dope then.

First One
Oct 93? – featuring Dj Critical & Jo Run – This was the first time my group was on the radio (Hip Club Groove). We had won a talent contest in the north end of halifax and the price was a 4 song demo. We invited Jo Run into the stidio to check us record (first time we recorded in a studio too) Gordski and I made the beats and cuts and Sixtoo, Chek Love and M88Kenzie were the lyricists at that point we were in grade 11. There will be a new H.C.G. Album Avilable on camobeardigital.com or itunes in the coming months of old stuff never released as well as the 4 song demo for radio we recorded then a year b4 Trailer Park HipHop, called “unreleased”

  1. Wow I’ve heard about that show. I guess you could say its legendary.Which dude was a part of HCG? I went to their only Edmonton show in the 90’s. I was one of the 10 dudes that showed up. One of the best shows I can remember from those days.

  2. It’s about fucking time… I’ve known too many people who have copies of this The Bassment and yet I can never get a copy hooked up. Now I can check a few of them out on my own… Thanks Moves.

  3. I like this blog a lot, all the old tapes moves recorded and put up from a while back were dope. I thought this shit was up for a minute already. Theres a lot of great music up there.
