Jungle Brothers

It’s hard to believe, it’s been Twenty years since the Jungle Brothers and their Native Tongues movement swept hip-hop off its feet. Twenty tumultuous years, some gloriously high, some depressingly low, but while others of their ilk have foundered and fallen by the wayside, the Jungle Brothers soldier on. In a genre where many talk of longevity, but few attain that level of durability; the Jungle Brothers have achieved just that without succumbing to passing fads that slide snake-like in and out of rap. They remain true to themselves and their beloved art.
The seeds that spawned the Jungle Brothers were formed during hip-hop’s halcyon days. With the bright graffiti on the city’s street corners, parks and trains as a surreal backdrop and Afrika Bambaataa, Treacherous Three and the Cold Crush Brothers providing the soundtrack, the JBs were religiously soaking up rap by osmosis. Rappers Afrika Baby Bam and Mike G met while attending Manhattan’s Murray Bergtraum H.S. and often hit block parties together. When the two MCs decided to enter the school talent show, they enlisted the spinning services of Sammy B a/k/a Sweet Daddy and, to use a well-worn cliché, history was made.

Black Sheep is a hip hop duo from Queens, New York, composed of Andres “Dres” Titus and William “Mista Lawnge” McLean. The duo is from New York but met as teenagers in Sanford, North Carolina, where both of their families relocated. The group was an affiliate of the Native Tongues, which included the Jungle Brothers, A Tribe Called Quest, and De La Soul. After getting together in 1989, Black Sheep debuted in 1991 with the hit song “Flavor of the Month” and later released its first album, A Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing, which gained them praise and recognition in the hip-hop community for the album’s unique rhythms and intelligent lyrics. After six years together, Black Sheep disbanded in 1995, but decided to reunite five years later.

The Latin Hip Hop legends return will no doubt be anticipated for fans of their particular brand of goodtime Hip Hop.

You’d be hard pressed to find any band like Funkdoobiest – They are the brainchild and original third member of the Soul Assassins crew with Cypress Hill and House of Pain. While lots of Hip Hop bands nowadays struggle to sound like they do on recording, Funkdoobiest are known for their energetic live performances. They toured the world with the likes of Rage Against The Machine, Nirvana, Cypress Hill, House of Pain and Ice Cube among many others

Jeru the Damaja
Brooklyn-born Jeru spent his early years in the borough’s East New York neighborhood, where he began rhyming at block parties as a youth. He first showcased his hardcore Brooklyn style to audiences on ‘I’m the Man’ a track from Gang Starr’s 1992 album Daily Operation.

The following year he released the classic DJ Premier-produced hit single, Come Clean’. His first album, ‘The Sun Rises in the East’, was released in 1994 – an essential hip hop addition to anyone’s music collection. In ’96 his second, highly acclaimed album, Wrath of the Math spawned the hits ‘Ya Playin’ Yaself’, ‘One Day’, ‘Me or the Papes’ and ‘The Bullshit’.

The man is still hard at work. His most recent album ‘The Hammer’ came out last year and features co-labs with such heavyweights as Large Professor and The Beatnuts.

Jim Sharp
Sip The Juice DJs

One of hip hop’s first and finest Radio DJs and Super Producers, Marley Marl created many of the sharpest beats and hooks in rap history and continues his industry leadership to the present day.

Famous for representing the rap Mecca Queensbridge and known for introducing hip hop producers to sampling, Marley, born Marlon Williams, appears at the forefront of many of hip hop’s most important moments and movements: including rocking alongside Mr. Magic on Rap Attack, co-founding the legendary Juice Crew, battling KRS One and BDP in the infamous Bridge Wars, producing LL Cool J’s Mama Said Knock You Out, breaking new talent on Future Flavas, even inspiring the late great Notorious BIG.

Marley’s discography is extensive, with classics including Around the Way Girl, Eric B. Is President, Nobody Beats the Biz, The Symphony and hundreds more. The longstanding rivalry with KRS One was even put to rest when he and Marley collaborated on Hip Hop Lives in 2007.

Marl is in the studio, on the decks, and on the airwaves daily, and can be heard on Golden Era Radio with co-host Roxanne Shanté every Friday night.

He’ll be Droppin’ Science on the night with co-Juice Crew member Craig G who’ll be hosting and performing the classics. Alongside with support from Jim Sharp and the rest of our own Juice Crew.
