I Had That Tape – Shock G Tribute Part 1

This is part 1 of a two part special honoring the life and legacy of Shock G aka Humpty Hump of the mighty Digital Underground, one of thee best to do it out of the Bay Area. Shock is not only responsible for DU’s success but also for bringing 2Pac to the masses. Shock G is a game changer for music and really deserved A TON more credit than he got. Without Shock & Digital, you may not have artists like MF Doom. Episode 1 of this 2 part special mostly focuses on the hits, but there’s also a few surprises in the mix too. Also, since this show only plays rap music from the Bay, 80’s and 90’s, a few rules are gladly broken, all to honor one of my musical heroes, Shock G. RIP


I HAD THAT TAPE is a weekly show that plays Bay Area Rap Music from the 80’s & 90’s. From the turf rappers to the backpackers and conscious emcees, this show dives deep into one of Hip-Hop’s more prolific & diverse regions where the independent hustle reigns supreme, hosted by DJ Mike Biggz.
