Our co-worker DJ Mr. Cee invited Kiss FM’s Ed Lover to take over the Hot97 Throwback At Noon for a special tribute mix to Yo! MTV Raps.
New Mix: Ed Lover’s ‘Yo! MTV Raps’ Throwback at Noon mix
This Sunday, MTV2 is bringing back that iconic hip hop video show, Yo! MTV Raps, with a special episode called Classic Cuts. The show features the original host, Ed Lover, along with our pals like Shaheem Reid, Jayson Rodriguez, Peter Rosenberg and more…as well as yours truly, Miss Info. We’ll be talking about “classic cuts” like ATCQ’s “Scenario”, Ice Cube’s “Today Was a Good Day”, Geto Boys’ “Mind’s Playin’ Tricks On Me” and more. And the show hunted down the legends behind the songs and their contemporaries, interviewing Q Tip, Scarface, Ice Cube, Wiz Khalifa, DJ Khaled, Questlove, Busta Rhymes, Mac Miller, Machine Gun Kelly, Young Jeezy, Ali Shaheed Muhammad, Phife, Fat Joe, Common, Mike Epps, Ice T, Meek Mill, Tyga, and Naughty By Nature. The show airs at 12 midnight this Sunday, Dec 4th…right after the MTV2 Sucker Free Awards (which I think I’m also on, lol).
Thank you so much to the Sucker Free Awards team and the ‘Yo! MTV Raps’ Presents Classic Cuts team for inviting me to be part of their shows : )
