About 18 years ago to this very day, March 19th, the Notorious B.I.G. rocked on stage live in London with Puff Daddy by his side. It was the launch party for radio personality Tim Westwood on London's Radio 1 at the Palais that took place March 19th 1995. I love it when these never-seen-before videos are eventually digitized & later pop up on the web.
Spotted this video of LL Cool J & his DJ Cut Creator performing at Colby College in Waterville, Maine at the age of 17. LL Cool J was about to release his Def Jam debut & soon-to-be classic "Radio" album later that year & this performance could have been a possible promo tour he was on back then. Back in the early 80s hip hop was still expanding commercially so I'm not surprised at the crowd's modest reaction in Maine at the young upstart who may have been unknown to most of the audience. Some may say hip hop in 1985 was largely popular in cities like NY, Philly, L.A., & Chicago as it was still expanding throughout the country to smaller towns like Waterville Maine. I love vintage video clips like these. Shout out to PHMB & Kodiak Star who uploaded this rare vintage video with this message....
