Rap Treats #64: BDP Interview On WBAU (1987)

This is a crazy interview that KRS One and DJ Scott La Rock did on Doctor Dre's "The Operating Room" show on 90.3FM WBAU back in early '87. What makes it crazy is there aren't too many BDP interviews that I've heard that are with both KRS One and Scott La Rock due to La Rock's tragic passing in August of '87. The other reason this interview is dope is because it was during the height of the BDP vs. Mr. Magic, Marley Marl and MC Shan feud. This is just before Criminal Minded dropped and both KRS and Scott La Rock air out Mr. Magic and break down what led to the legendary battle. If you don't know about BDP vs. Juice Crew (which was really more BDP vs. MC Shan) then it's time to play catch up. Check the video below which breaks down the whole "Bridge Wars" and features interviews with KRS One, MC Shan, and Marley Marl (who concedes that BDP won).
