Nitty Gritty Radio - Best of ‘96


Peace brethren! It’s you musical pied piper Wil Infamous here with the last installment of Nitty Gritty Radio for the year 2016. For this one we’re taking a trip in the wayback machine to a very important year in my personal Hip-Hop journey, 1996.

Nine Six was my first year DJ’n on the radio in Boston and it was also the beginning of when a shift started happening in Hip Hop music. There was a clear divide happening between “Underground” and “Mainstream” Hip-Hop. Beats were changing, subject matter and most importantly where the music was being produced. Myself, I’m a loyalist to that authentic Boom Bap sound so my ear went to the Underground and this playlist reflects a lot of the tracks that I would play on my radio show and that I was personally feeling at the time. Hope you feel that ’96 vibe with this one.
